Dear Marriage Supporter,
As you know, last week the Supreme Court handed down two terrible decisions on marriage. But the Court stopped short of fabricating a "right" to redefine marriage in our Constitution, choosing instead to allow the states to settle the question.
This means winning or losing marriage is still up to us, The People.
Within hours of last week's rulings, Governor Mike Pence of Indiana issued a statement calling upon the General Assembly to place a constitutional amendment on the ballot for the people of Indiana to vote on next November.
NOM has been strongly supportive of this effort since 2011, when the first vote to put a Marriage Protection Amendment on the ballot passed both chambers by large, bipartisan margins.
If you do not live in Indiana please forward this to your friends and family who do (or use the social media sharing buttons at the top and bottom of this email) and make a pledge to support our critical work.
Over the past few years NOM has been battling in deep blue states, successfully fending off legislative attacks on marriage in states such as Illinois, New Jersey and Hawaii — hardly friendly territory for us.
This is an opportunity to go to a thriving, Midwestern state, and demonstrate that heartland America believes in marriage.
Gay marriage advocates are still terrified of letting the people decide this issue — because they know the people do not support redefining marriage.
Help us remind the media elites and our opponents where America really stands on marriage. Please email your representative and senator right away demanding they support the right of the people to vote on marriage!
Please remember to encourage your friends and family to take action once you have done so — absolutely every single one of us can help this mission to protect marriage succeed.
Thank you and God bless you,
Brian S. Brown
