URGENT: One Chance To Stop Same-Sex Marriage In Delaware!

 

National Organization for Marriage

Dear Marriage Supporter,

Delaware is one of same-sex marriage activists' top targets in 2013 — and it's up to us to stop them.

Why?

Like many of the states along the northern Atlantic seaboard, the Delaware Constitution does not give citizens the right to overrule legislators through a voter initiative or constitutional amendment referendum.

Couple that with a sympathetic governor and nearly 2-1 Democratic majorities in both houses of the legislature, and gay marriage activists have already placed Delaware in the crosshairs for 2013.

Governor Markell even went so far as to claim that same-sex marriage is "inevitable" in Delaware.

But he's forgetting one thing . . .

The people of Delaware have a powerful voice.

If we all stand together, legislators will have no choice but to listen. But it's going to take every one of us . . . sending letters, making phone calls, contacting friends and family.

This is a critical fight, and our opponents are already off and running. A bill to redefine marriage in Delaware was introduced just last week and has already been fast-tracked through a House committee hearing and vote.

So much for civil unions being a compromise.

Just two years ago, gay marriage advocates pushed through a civil unions bill, claiming it would be a compromise that respected the definition of marriage and the rights of religious believers, while at the same time guaranteeing protections for same-sex couples.

And once again, civil unions are being exposed as nothing more than a Trojan Horse.
