Take 5 Minutes to Protect Marriage in Pennsylvania!

 

National Organization for Marriage

Dear Marriage Supporter,

Last week Pennsylvania's Attorney General Kathleen Kane announced she will NOT defend Pennsylvania's Defense of Marriage Act, which protects marriage as the union of one man and one woman against a new lawsuit.

How dare she abdicate her sworn duty to uphold the law!

This means Governor Tom Corbett is the only elected official standing between far-left activists like the ACLU and their goal of unilaterally striking down Pennsylvania's Defense of Marriage Act, which was passed overwhelmingly in 1996 by the General Assembly.

Elected officials have a sacred duty to do their job and protect the laws passed by the people's elected representatives.

Please take a few minutes to call on Gov. Corbett to provide Pennsylvania's Defense of Marriage Act with the strongest representation in court possible!

These new attacks on marriage serve as an important reminder that Pennsylvania voters deserve the opportunity to vote on a Constitutional Amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman, the only social institution we have that gives children the mother and father they deserve.

Activist judges or derelict politicians should not have the last word on marriage. We, the People deserve to vote to protect marriage, as people in nearly three dozen other states have done.

Please take a minute to email your state Representatives and Senators and urge them to support the Pennsylvania Marriage Protection Amendment!

We urge you to become better informed about what is happening in Pennsylvania and help us spread the word.

To that end, please listen and call in to Philadelphia Public Radio (WHYY) this morning at 11:40AM to support our ally, Michael Geer, President of the Pennsylvania Family Institute as he discusses the ACLU lawsuit seeking to redefine marriage and Attorney General Kane's refusal to defend the law and do her job.

WHYY can be heard in the Philadelphia area on 90.9 FM, and online at www.whyy.org/91FM/. To call in and voice your opinion or ask a question, call 1-888-477-9499.

And please continue to support our efforts to protect marriage in Pennsylvania and across the nation.

God bless you for taking time out of your busy schedule to protect marriage,

Brian S. Brown
