Government Seeks to Force Redefinition of Marriage

 
National Organization for Marriage

Dear Marriage Supporter,

You know, it's one thing when gay-marriage activists like the so-called Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and the Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders (GLAAD) do everything in their power to bully and intimidate the American people into 'supporting' same-sex marriage, but it's quite another when the government begins to lead the charge.

Will you please sacrificially provide the March for Marriage with a generous donation today so that we can stand up to the bullying and intimidation tactics of those, including government officials, who would force the redefinition of marriage on our country?

There's a litany of action and inaction on the government's part to redefine marriage. We could start with the Obama Administration's refusal to defend the law of the land in the DOMA case, or we could look to State Governors and Attorney Generals who have abandoned their oaths-of-office and refused to defend the law and the will of the people who elected them.

Of course there are the impeachable actions of Attorney General Holder, such as when he recommended to State officials that it would be okay to ignore the laws of their states, and their sworn Constitutional duty, by refusing to defend their states' own Defense of Marriage Acts. This has even crossed party lines to the point where Republican governors in Pennsylvania, New Mexico, Nevada, and New Jersey have refused to defend marriage.

How will this stop? Only when the everyday Americans who support marriage as one man and one woman — a majority according to even the latest Politico polling — stand for truth and make their voices heard in the halls-of-power of this land.

Will you make a significant financial contribution to this year's March for Marriage so that every supporter of marriage as the union of one man and one woman, who wants to be part of the March and to make their voice heard in Washington, D.C., can do so?

We will use your gift to continue promoting the March across the country through all of our platforms and in cooperation with dozens of allied organizations. Your gift will also help us subsidize buses for less fortunate supporters who are determined to join us but cannot pay the whole cost of chartering transportation.

Your gift will be used to make sure that the March for Marriage is a huge success by bringing thousands of marriage supporters to our nation's capital so that we can together stand up to the bullying and intimidation tactics of those who would silence our message — even complicit government officials.

I look forward to being with you in Washington one week from today.

Standing Firm With You,

Brian S Brown
