Dear Marriage Supporter,
A little over a week ago, I sent you an email thanking you for the incredible support we'd received for our year-end, million dollar matching gift campaign.
We're still $310,000 short of our one million dollar campaign goal. But remember, if we can make up that gap, it will be doubled by our matching donor. That's an additional $620,000 to help fight for marriage in the new year! But we need your help now to reach this goal!
Please click here right away to make a generous year-end donation to NOM to support our work and help us reach our year-end goal of $1,000,000 — every penny of which will be matched dollar-for-dollar by a generous supporter.
In these past few days we've seen yet again why your support is as important as ever. As you have undoubtedly heard, the special-interest homosexual group GLAAD launched their campaign to bully A&E networks into suspending Ducky Dynasty star Phil Robertson from his own show simply for honestly answering questions put to him in an interview with GQ magazine about the tenets of his faith.
It clearly demonstrates how intensely aggressive and intolerant the radicals pushing the same-sex marriage agenda are... and how far they will go to ensure that religious views about sex and marriage are altogether removed from the public square!
They're going after basic first amendment rights — not just religious liberty, but free speech as well!
We must put a stop to this! NOM's mission is to protect marriage and the faith communities that sustain it. Our stand in defense of Phil Robertson is intended not only to support him, but all people and faith groups who speak out in support of true marriage...and we need your help to do it!
So, please, click here to make a year-end donation to NOM today. Please give as generously as you can, as every dollar you donate right now will be matched and DOUBLE the impact that your hard earned money makes in defense of marriage.
In addition to battling in the public square on behalf of marriage, recent developments underscore the important battles taking place in courtrooms, legislatures and other venues. Just last Friday, a federal judge in Utah struck down the state's marriage amendment passed by an overwhelming majority of voters. We've got to gear up to support efforts to stop this outrageous decision and restore the legitimate right of voters to determine marriage for themselves.
With Christmas right around the corner, I know many of us are running around, shopping and traveling in anticipation of celebrating this holy time with family. Unfortunately, our opponents' many attacks on marriage and pro-marriage citizens continue each day regardless of the holidays. So please find a minute or two to make a gift to NOM today so that we can we can enter 2014 knowing that you are standing shoulder to shoulder with us.

PS: We have raised almost $700,000 toward our year-end matching gift campaign. Please help us take full advantage of this incredible opportunity to raise the remaining $310,000 we need to hit our goal, and thus secure an additional $620,000 for defending marriage in the coming year!
