Dear Marriage Supporter,
Later this week, the nine members of the United States Supreme Court are expected to make an announcement that will let the country know whether and how they intend to weigh in on the national debate over same-sex marriage.
Among the ten separate same-sex marriage cases pending before the Court are the 9th Circuit Court's ruling which overturned California's Proposition 8 and numerous cases challenging the federal Defense of Marriage Act. Many observers expect the Court to grant review in one or more of these cases, any of which could have an historic impact on the fight to defend marriage.
But regardless of what the Supreme Court decides to do with regard to these cases, the fact remains that we are at a critical moment for marriage in America. That's why NOM's work to change the political and cultural landscape surrounding marriage remains as important as ever!
Please re-commit yourself now as the year comes to a close, and stand alongside NOM in this fight today with your year-end gift of $25, $50, $100 or more. Together, we can face down the forces arrayed against us, trying to impose their radical same-sex marriage agenda on the entire country.
The reason why I encourage you to dig deep and give today is that, thanks to the incredible generosity of a stalwart supporter, we have a pledge that every donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $500,000! That's right—your end-of-the-year gift will double in value! This will allow us to prepare our strategies to stand up to the onslaught that we're certain will be launched against marriage in the coming year.
Strong, healthy marriages are critical for the well being of children and society. The institution of marriage is the greatest protection against poverty, and gives the next generation their best chance of success. This is a cause that is both worthy and just, from which we must not back down now!
Please commit to standing with us today as we steadfastly fight to create a sound marriage culture: for our country, for our future, and for our children.
I promise you, NOM is not giving up in this fight—and I know I can count on you to stand with us as we move forward to more victories for marriage and for the Republic we love.
