Dear Marriage Supporter,
The alarming news about the resignation — or, more aptly, termination — of Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich is bringing to light the enormity of the threat that redefining marriage poses not just to marriage, but to the individual citizens who believe in it.
Indeed, defending marriage is inextricably tied to defending our religious liberties and, indeed, all of our precious first amendment rights. And that defense is core to our mission here at NOM.
Americans should be at liberty to voice their support for the institution of marriage without fear of reprisal or discrimination.
Standing up in defiant reaffirmation of these liberties is, as I have explained before, one of the main reasons we are marching for marriage again this year. The March for Marriage will take place in Washington, D.C. on June 19th, beginning at 11:00 am. And today, I'm happy to announce that our brand new 2014 March for Marriage website is up and running. Check it out!
On the site, you'll find all the resources you need to get involved and participate in this year's March, including:
- A sign up form to get involved in promoting the March for Marriage — whether it be through your attendance at the March, participation in Lobby Day, attending our Gala dinner, or joining the Virtual March for Marriage;
- Information about how to organize a bus from your community to attend the March (and if you do want to plan a bus, be sure to drop us a line and let us help);
- Downloadable promotional materials for print or online publicity efforts in your community and Church;
We're going to continue standing up to the bullies and haters who want you and me to shut up and get out of the public square. If they haven't realized it already, they'll get the idea pretty soon: we're not going away, and neither is the truth about marriage!
Will you please sign up to be a part of the movement today?
