This is important...please take a minute to read...

 

Dear Marriage Supporter,

If you're anything like me, you're still seething over the two terrible decisions issued last month by the Supreme Court against marriage.

But, again, if you're anything like me, you're not giving up on marriage!

You and I both understand that marriage is the foundation of society; that children have a right to a mother and a father; and that the beautiful, God-ordained marital union of man and woman is worth fighting for...ALWAYS!

Please consider making a generous donation of $35, $50, $100, $500 or more right away to help NOM enter this new phase of the fight to defend marriage and restore a true marriage culture to America.

Last week I sent you a detailed account of our strategic plan moving forward in light of the Supreme Court's rulings. You can read about that plan in detail here.

The basics:

  • NOM will continue fighting for marriage in legislatures at both the state and federal level and work toward enshrining marriage protections into the US Constitution;

  • We will fight with our allies to defend marriage in the courts;

  • We will push for religious liberty protections for people of faith wherever marriage has been redefined; and

  • We will continue to educate the public about the nature and purpose of marriage and change the culture.

If you consider those goals worthy, please make a generous donation right away to help us immediately implement them.

Our opponents and those in the biased media say, "It's inevitable. You can't win. Give up..."

I couldn't disagree more!

In 2008, I heard the same things when we worked on Prop 8 in California...and we WON!

In 2009, I heard the same things when we worked on Question 1 in Maine...and we WON!

In 2010, I heard the same things when we worked in Iowa to oust state Supreme Court justices...and we WON!

In 2011, I heard the same things when we worked in New York to oust legislators who flipped on marriage and betrayed their constituents...and we WON!

And last year, I heard the same things when we worked in North Carolina to pass an amendment to the state constitution protecting marriage...and we WON!

We've suffered some set backs recently — the Supreme Court supplying the most recent — but we have a path forward!

Let's not forget one crucial thing about the Supreme Court's opinions: they did NOT constitutionalize gay 'marriage.' They specifically said that it's the states that get to define marriage. That's good news for us, because 38 states say that marriage is between one man and one woman. And as more and more states see challenges to their marriage laws, I intend, as I always do, to give it my all!

Will you stand by my side?
