Only 3 Days

 

National Organization for Marriage

Dear Marriage Supporter,

We have only 3 days to defeat gay-marriage activists in Illinois, where the General Assembly adjourns this Friday.

Our opponents have been fighting for months in this deep blue state to pass a bill redefining marriage — but our side has been fighting even harder to stop them. NOM has dedicated over one hundred twenty-five thousand dollars to this critical fight.

Please help NOM continue to support those who are fighting on the front lines of this good fight with your donation of $35, $50 or $100 right away.

This is our last opportunity to score a legislative victory for marriage before the Supreme Court hands down their rulings on marriage next month.

Our sources on the ground tell us the vote could be as soon as tomorrow or the day after (Thursday). Gay-marriage activists are claiming they have the votes, but we know they don't yet!

That's why we need everyone, and I do mean everyone, to pitch in...and also to help spread the word: please use this link to contact your state legislators if you live in Illinois or forward this to all of your friends and family:

Tell them all to VOTE NO on SB10. Vote NO on Gay Marriage.

If you can call your state legislator, that is the best option!

We need to get the word out far and wide that Illinois hangs in the balance, and so does marriage — across America.

Already gay-marriage advocates in other states are preparing campaigns to REPEAL existing State Constitutional protections for marriage. With your help NOM will be there to help those states preserve marriage...

In addition to fighting to protect marriage in Illinois, NOM is already planning for the next stage of the marriage debate, ensuring that no matter what the Supreme Court decides, marriage is upheld and strengthened in our culture.

Please help NOM prepare for the next critical stage of the marriage fight as we await the decisions of the Supreme Court by donating whatever you can spare to our critical efforts.

And please continue to pray and act on behalf of marriage in Illinois.

Only 3 days — marriage is worth defending!

    As a lifelong resident of Illinois, I would like to express my gratitude to NOM for helping us preserve true marriage in Illinois. Like you said, only 3 days left, Hopefully we can stop this, cause I don't want to move but I refuse to live in a state that belittles my marriage.

    Mike -

    So, when DOMA falls, does that mean you leave the country? Childish.

    Tom,

    When and if DOMA fails it will not redefine marriage nationwide. As long as we can keep these radical liberals from changing our state law, gay marriage will still be against the law here. I doubt I will see nationwide marriage redefinition in my lifetime, so leaving the country is not an issue. You folks can maybe snag up deep blue states, but you've about run out of them.
