54 Days

 

Dear Marriage Supporter,

Did you know that we have only 54 days until the 2015 March for Marriage?

That's less than two months to prepare for the single most important task we can undertake in defense of marriage this year...

The Supreme Court will be hearing oral arguments — likely in the days right before or following the March — in a case that could shape the legal definition of marriage for years to come. It could be a case that goes down in history as the Roe v Wade of marriage... or as the greatest legal victory marriage has ever won.

Won't you please stand with us in support of this critical undertaking with a generous gift right away?

One thing the US Supreme Court won't be able to do is redefine marriage, because marriage was created by God himself as the union of one man and one woman, and no judge or politician has the power to change it.

But let's not downplay the importance of this case — an adverse Supreme Court ruling that takes relationships that are simply about adult sexual desires and attaches the label 'marriage' to them would deal a devastating blow to our cause and likely take us years to recover from. So this is our last, best chance to wake up the Supreme Court and let them know that the American people demand that they respect our votes and our voice and not meddle in the democratic decisions of state voters and legislators to define marriage in the law as it exists in reality — one man and one woman.

We are at a critical moment. Think of the situation with the pro-life movement and how much it would mean to go back in time and organize a huge march while the Court was considering imposing abortion on the nation.

Well, that's exactly where we are with marriage and we cannot let this moment pass without doing all in our power to rally the American people to action.

Won't you please support the God-ordained institution of marriage in this critical hour when it is so needed?

Our matching gift campaign is underway and we're almost half way to our overall goal of raising $100,000 online. So if you give today, your donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar by another generous supporter.

Bills are coming due right now. We are organizing speakers and their travel arrangements; securing permits and signing contracts for the onsite logistics; preparing the media and advertising campaigns to let people know about this incredibly important event; and securing buses to bring people from further away to our nation's capital.

We MUST make a powerful statement as we rally in front of the Capitol and march to the Supreme Court on April 25th... because this case will have dramatic consequences for the future of marriage in America.

I am doing everything in my power — including investing every available resource at my disposal — into making the 2015 March for Marriage an unequivocal success... sending the Supreme Court and other leaders in Washington DC a clear and powerful message: marriage is the union of one man and one woman and you must respect the decision of legislators and voters who through the democratic process have preserved marriage. Any ruling to impose gay 'marriage' on the nation will be illegitimate.

And let me tell you, I am optimistic we can win!

Did you know that on April 22 of last year, Justice Kennedy wrote the following in a majority opinion handed down by the Supreme Court:

There is no authority in the Constitution of the United States or in this Court's precedents for the Judiciary to set aside Michigan laws that commit this policy determination to the voters.... Deliberative debate on sensitive issues such as racial preferences all too often may shade into rancor. But that does not justify removing certain court-determined issues from the voters' reach. Democracy does not presume that some subjects are either too divisive or too profound for public debate. [emphasis added]

That decision pertained to Michigan's constitutional amendment on affirmative action, but the clear and undeniable logic of the decision indicates that Justice Kennedy should — by his own legal precedent and logic — rule in defense of marriage.

The constitution is silent on marriage. Therefore, it is in the purview of the states to regulate the institution of marriage — and our democratic system demands that the Supreme Court respect the right of state legislators and voters to preserve one man/one woman marriage in the law.

Marriage Supporter, we have a chance to make the case for marriage and win a victory that will be felt for decades to come. Won't you help us by financially supporting this critical endeavor?
