The Time Is Now

 


Dear Marriage Supporter,

We are now just six weeks away from one of the most important events in our cause to preserve marriage — the 2015 March for Marriage taking place on April 25th in Washington, DC.

The importance of this march cannot be overstated — it is our last, best hope to show the justices of the US Supreme Court that the American people demand that their views, values and votes be respected and that marriage be preserved!

Please make plans for joining us for the March for Marriage this year as we make the case for marriage. Three days after the justices of the Supreme Court see the outpouring of support for marriage, they will hear oral argument in the case that could shape the legal definition of marriage in America for years to come.

In the weeks ahead, I will be sending you more specifics on ways you can participate and support the march — either in person or online through the Virtual March for Marriage.

Watch for updates on www.marriagemarch.org coming soon.

In the mean time, please consider making a generous donation to support our efforts to organize and promote this critical event. We have a great deal of work to do and nobody to turn to for help except for loyal supporters like you.

Since The Media Won't Report It...

Rasmussen conducted a poll on February 26, 2015 concerning the marriage issue. The release of their findings was entitled "Jury's Still Out on Gay Marriage," and the first line of the report read: "Support for gay marriage has fallen to its lowest level in over a year, with voters now almost evenly divided on the issue."

Support for same-sex marriage has dropped over the past year by six percentage points, while opposition has increased. In fact, more voters are opposed to same-sex 'marriage' (44%) than are in favor of it (42%).

This dramatic change in public opinion comes as activist judges throughout the country have been working overtime to redefine marriage in direct opposition to the decision of over fifty million voters.

While the media seems utterly baffled by these findings — unable to process them and therefore report on them — we are not surprised in the least.

The findings are in keeping with a February 20, 2015 WPA poll conducted by the Family Research Council that found 53% of Americans agree that marriage should be defined only as a union between one man and one woman.

Moreover, the overwhelming majority of Americans (81%) agree that government should leave people free to follow their beliefs about marriage as they live their daily lives at work and in the way they run their businesses.

And Rasmussen is not the only polling organization to find support for same-sex marriage collapsing. Pew Research Center found a similar thing in their last poll on the subject.

And yet, Justice Ginsburg feels compelled to publicly declare that — should the Supreme Court discover a "right" to same-sex 'marriage' hidden within the 14th Amendment of the United States Constitution — it "would not take a large adjustment" for the American people to accept their findings.

I vehemently disagree, and it's reassuring to see so many polls that back me up. The American people believe in the truth and beauty of marriage... which is why we are hopeful that you and thousands of your fellow marriage supporters will join us on April 25th for the March.

Don't Wait

But we — and our friends in the new pro-marriage Congress — aren't simply sitting back and waiting for the Supreme Court to rule.

Cognizant of the inherent threats to religious freedom that redefining marriage presents, Representative Mike Kelly (R-PA) and Senator Mike Enzi (R-WY) have introduced the 2015 Child Welfare Provider Inclusion Act in the US House and Senate.

If you haven't done so already, please click here to send your Congressman and Senators a message urging them to support this vital legislation.

This common sense legislation protects faith-based agencies from discrimination and punitive measures by governments who are ideologically opposed to the tenets of their faith — as has been seen repeatedly in locations that have redefined marriage.

It seems ridiculous that we must pass legislation to protect our first amendment rights to operate our businesses and charities in keeping with the tenets of our faith — but that is where we find ourselves today.

Looking at what has happened to organizations like Catholic Charities in Massachusetts and Washington, DC — which were forced to shut down because they elected not to violate the core teachings of their Church and place children with same-sex couples — we can see that there is a real threat to people of faith... that we MUST stand up and fight in defense of marriage!

Which is why we must draw a line in the sand and let the Supreme Court, elected officials and other elites in control of the levers of power in our society know that the people of this great nation will not stand for having a radical ideology imposed upon us!

Faithfully,

Brian S Brown
