Dear Marriage Supporter,
The people of Pennsylvania have been denied due process on so many levels when it comes to the marriage debate — it must stop.
Take the time today to join our friends at the Pennsylvania Pastors' Network in urging support for resolutions spearheaded by Rep. Daryl Metcalfe (R.-Butler) in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives and Sen. John Eichelberger (R.-Hollidaysburg) in the Senate calling for the Corbett Administration to appeal the recent court decision that invalidated Pennsylvania's Defense of Marriage Act.
Use this link to send Governor Corbett a message urging him to appeal the court ruling and to let your Representative and Senator know that you want marriage, and the law of the land, protected in the courts.
While the State Legislature, with the support of the people, approved the state's Defense of Marriage Act in 1996 defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman, since then the people have been roundly ignored and law of the land flouted. The people, through their elected officials, have repeatedly asked for the right to vote and enshrine the definition of marriage in the State's constitution.
Then, last year Attorney General Kathleen Kane abandoned the people and her oath of office by refusing to defend the Defense of Marriage Act in court. Her actions opened the door for renegade county officials to defy the law and begin issuing same-sex marriage licenses. Now a judge has decided to legislate from the bench and impose his individual opinion about marriage on every voter by overturning the Defense of Marriage Act. This has got to stop.
Time is running out. Please send an email today to Governor Corbett and the legislature urging him to appeal this horrendous ruling. The Governor still can intervene — he has 30 days from May 20th to file the state's appeal. Follow this link to urge him to do so.
Let's renew the push in Pennsylvania to protect marriage, the law of the land, and the sovereignty of the people. Send Governor Corbett your message today.
Standing with all Pennsylvanians,
Brian S. Brown
