Immediate Action Needed to Block SSM in Delaware!

 

National Organization for Marriage

Dear Marriage Supporter,

Same-sex marriage advocates in Delaware are very publicly planning a push for a new law to redefine marriage when the Legislature reconvenes for its new session in just over a week. Governor Markell claims that the passage of same-sex marriage in The First State is "inevitable."

But you and I both know that that's a lie!

The inevitability of SSM isn't a fact—it's an argument same-sex marriage advocates use over and over in an attempt to get the American people to give up the fight for what we know is true about marriage:

Marriage is a good for both individuals and society.

Marriage unites men and women, and protects children.

This is the truth. And we need the law to uphold that truth, not undermine it.

Please click here to send a message to your state lawmakers today. Let them know the people of Delaware are watching, and will hold them accountable for their vote on the marriage issue when election time rolls around.

The consequences of these politicians' votes will impact Delawareans from all walks of life, but people of faith will bear the brunt of it.

Activists know the American people—even those who support same-sex marriage—don't want to force religious groups to go against their beliefs. And yet, everywhere same-sex marriage becomes law, it is religious believers who become the law's first targets.

Across the country, Catholic Charities is being forced to abandon adoption and foster care services as a result of same-sex marriage being enacted in various states.

Reception halls, inns, and bed-and-breakfasts face lawsuits for declining to host same-sex wedding ceremonies or receptions.

And schools across the country are facing increasing pressures to teach elementary students about "Prince & Prince," or "Heather's Two Mommies."

Send your lawmakers a message: Don't Mess with Marriage!

Please use this link to email your state senator and representative today, urging them to reject same-sex marriage in the upcoming legislative session.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Success or failure may well hinge on the outpouring of opposition to this bill that politicians receive over the next couple of weeks. After you take action, PLEASE IMMEDIATELY FORWARD this email to all your friends and family in Delaware, or use the social networking buttons below to post to Facebook or Twitter.
