We Need To Keep It Up And Level The Playing Field!

 

National Organization for Marriage

Dear Marriage Supporter,

We're off to an incredible start, raising almost $100,000 online so far!

But we've got a long way to go before we reach our $500,000 goal.

Click here right now to financially invest in the future by making a donation of $35, $50, $100 or even $500 to help us reach our goal of raising $500,000 to defend marriage wherever it is threatened.

If you haven't ever made a donation to NOM, please consider giving today... the impact of your donation will be DOUBLED by our generous matching donor, who will match your gift dollar-for-dollar!

This is a critical time for marriage as the Supreme Court will be considering two historic cases in just a few weeks.

I don't know if you heard, but the pro-gay marriage group "Freedom To Marry" recently pledged $2 million toward state efforts to impose gay marriage.

They are beginning with an initial investment of $800,000 toward states that have current efforts pushing same-sex marriage, including Delaware, Illinois, Minnesota, New Jersey and Rhode Island trying to perpetuate the false sense of "inevitability" they have pushed so hard to create right before the Supreme Court hears the Prop 8 and DOMA cases.

It would be disastrous if a well-funded push by the same-sex marriage activists got bills passed at exactly the time the most important legal case of our generation was under consideration by the Supreme Court!

You and I can stop them! We have before... and we can again!

So please make an immediate donation to support NOM's work to defend marriage wherever it is threatened all across the country.

Our upcoming March for Marriage in our nation's capitol on March 26th is just part of our larger efforts to ensure gay marriage advocates can no longer ignore the central, core issue: What Is Marriage?

We need to reframe the issue — for far too long we've been letting our opponents get away with shallow rhetoric reducing marriage to nothing more than issues of "equality" and "civil rights." Marriage is so much more than that! It is, for starters, the only institution we have that ties children to their biological mother and father!

We need to educate the public on the consequences of redefining marriage — same-sex marriage would disrupt virtually every sphere of American life, from business to religion to education and so much more.

We need to hold our elected officials accountable — even the AP was recently forced to admit that "GOP lawmakers who backed [same-sex marriage] faced consequences, including loss of their seats." The opportunities are there to broaden the base of public officials' support for marriage... and with your help, we can capitalize on them!

And we need to level the playing field in terms of funding — in last November's elections, we were outspent in four state ballot initiatives by over $20 million. We just can't spot the same-sex marriage lobby that kind of advantage and still expect to win, especially in deep blue states.

So will you step up right now and make an immediate donation of $35, $50, $100, or even $500 or more to save marriage and prevent a second Roe v. Wade moment for our great nation?

Remember, your contribution to defend marriage will be instantly matched, dollar-for-dollar, up to $500,000! NOM will receive an additional dollar for every dollar you contribute... and this goes for every donation made before March 26th!

Thank you so much for being such a stalwart defender of marriage and for standing with NOM as it gives voice to the millions of Americans just like you and me who believe that marriage is the union of one man and one woman!
