What You Can Do Today to Help Save Marriage

 

National Organization for Marriage

Dear Marriage Supporter,

Yesterday the US Supreme Court ripped the legs out from under the institution of marriage. Here’s something you can do today to help save this foundational institution: SUPPORT Congressman Tim Huelskamp's Constitutional Amendment to define marriage as the union of one man and one woman. We applaud him, Reps. Vicky Hartzler, John Fleming and others who have stood strong to champion true marriage.

It is absolutely urgent that you write to your Senators and Representative to support the Marriage Protection Amendment. It is imperative that the nation show its displeasure with what the slim majority on the Court did yesterday, attempting to equate homosexual relationships that have no capacity for creating life with marriage as God created it, bringing men and women together in the ideal environment for the raising of children.

This will be a long fight, but the Supreme Court's destructive decisions on DOMA and Prop. 8 must be corrected by WE, The People. A constitutional amendment is the clear way to reign in an out-of-control judiciary and restore marriage throughout this country.

We must also stop the attempt to repeal section 2 of DOMA which allows states to define marriage for themselves. Already, liberal members of Congress are moving forward to repeal DOMA. They must be stopped. Please email your Senators and Representative to demand that they continue to support DOMA and pass the Marriage Protection Amendment.

We can win this fight but we need you to immediately take action demanding that Congress uphold DOMA and pass this Amendment. Please also forward this message to as many of your friends as possible and ask them to do the same!

As Justice Scalia said in his prophetic dissent,

"It takes real cheek for today's majority to assure us, as it is going out the door, that a constitutional requirement to give formal recognition to same-sex marriage is not at issue here — when what has preceded that assurance is a lecture on how superior the majority's moral judgment in favor of same-sex marriage is to the Congress's hateful moral judgment against it. I promise you this: The only thing that will "confine" the Court's holding is its sense of what it can get away with."

There you have it. The bottom line is that we cannot let them get away with destroying marriage. The fate of marriage is in our hands.

Please contact your Senators and Representative right now to urge them to support the constitutional amendment preserving marriage, and vote against attempts to repeal DOMA.

Now is the time to stand and demand that our rights and the truth about marriage are protected. The other side wants us to give up, but we never will. While yesterday’s decisions were bad, marriage is still the union of one man and one woman in 38 states. Your elected representatives must hear from you today.

Please act right away to stop politicians from taking the next step towards redefining marriage throughout our country and leaving marriage exposed to activist judges.

    “Two men might each be a good father, but neither can be a mom. The ideal for children is the love of their own mom and dad. No same-sex couple can provide that.
    Those in the wedding industry have already been sued for not wanting to participate in same sex weddings because of their religious beliefs. This is about religious freedom.

    Are we under dictatorship or a democracy? Twice the People voted that marriage was between 1 man & 1 woman to have a few judges Without morals override the peoples choices of marriage! This is abuse of our govt & constitution! Wet must repeal revoke & purge these decisions. Next fathers will say they have a right to sexually love their young children! Where is it going to stop! God help our perverse nation!

    This is the least you can do to save traditional marriage. It's easy and quick to send an email to your congress persons. Thank you for this site.

    Our Country was founded on Biblical principles. The Bible clearly teaches, For whom, and for what purpose marriage was instituted by God. Please let us get back to the principles our Founding Fathers followed in building this Country... Please vote and support this ammendment, to save Marriages as God defined them.

    It is my belief that if we do not act now, there will be more erosion of our constitution. I now will be leaving California and residing in one of the states that still believes in that marriage is between a man an a woman.

    This fight is not over

    Sometimes it’s predictable. A couple gets married too young, for the wrong reasons, with only a soft commitment, or their personalities are just too different for easy day to day living.

    "Are we under dictatorship or a democracy?"

    Neither April. We're a republic. You should pay more attention during the pledge of allegiance, "...and to the REPUBLIC for which she stands..."
