Dear Marriage Supporter,
As I mentioned right before Christmas, a federal judge (an Obama appointee) in Utah has issued a ruling invalidating their state constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman.
This ruling (although absurd) is an extremely serious threat as it puts at risk the constitutional amendments in every state that has protected marriage.
We have to stand up and fight back to stop this egregious abuse of judicial power!
Please click here to make an end-of-the-year donation to the National Organization for Marriage right away and help us defend marriage from radical judges seeking to overturn the will of We the People and to impose their radical social agenda on ordinary Americans!
Remember, every donation you make before the end of the year will be matched dollar-for-dollar by a generous donor, DOUBLING the impact your hard-earned money will make in the fight to defend marriage!
This ruling just underscores the importance of the work that NOM is already planning for 2014. I wrote to you earlier this month about the critical importance of retaking the United States Senate in the coming election year. Securing a majority of pro-marriage Senators would allow us to block President Obama's appointments of extremist, activist judges and ensure that he doesn't continue to stack the courts all across the country with activists who want to impose same-sex marriage on every one of us.
In addition, NOM is working with pro-marriage governors in states like Utah, to ensure that they do everything in their power to defend their states' laws and the express will of the voters who enacted their constitutional amendments. We launched a petition to Utah Governor Gary Herbert a few days ago to make sure he knew the American people would back him when he stands up for marriage!
As I've said before, 2014 is going to be a year of tremendous opportunity to seize back the momentum in the fight to defend marriage. Won't you please stand with us by making a year-end gift in support of NOM and help us reach our $1,000,000 goal right away?
