Help Preserve Marriage in Ireland!

 


Dear Marriage Supporter,

While we in the US have our eyes on the Supreme Court, the people of Ireland also are keenly engaged in the issue of redefining marriage. Interestingly, advocates for redefining marriage in America told the high Court that it's up to the justices to take this step because "fundamental rights" should not be left to popular vote.

Yet in Ireland, same-sex 'marriage' activists have done just that — pushed a national referendum that would redefine marriage. Apparently "principle" is a flexible concept that can be molded to suit the objectives of gay and lesbian activists depending on the circumstances.

In approximately three weeks (May 22nd) the people of Ireland will vote on whether to permit same-sex marriage in their Constitution. The No (i.e. pro-marriage) campaign is receiving significant abuse and needs your help.

Will you please do four things today:

  1. Visit their campaign site and support them at www.keepmarriage.org.
  2. Visit their Facebook page and join them in defending marriage.
  3. Visit their Youtube page and like their videos.
  4. Share this mail with your friends and encourage them to follow your example!

Increasingly the battle to preserve marriage is becoming a global one. While the Obama administration aggressively ties American foreign policy (to the extent they have a foreign policy) to advancing the gay agenda worldwide, most countries in the world strongly are opposed to redefining marriage. In fact, only 17 out of the 196 countries in the world recognize same-sex 'marriage;' less than ten percent of the total and almost all in the west. The rest resist.

Just like in campaigns for marriage here in America, slanted public opinion polls become fodder to influence the public and depress supporters of marriage. This is happening in Ireland. If they can manage to pull off a victory, it will be a tremendous boost to the cause of marriage worldwide. Please do what you can to bring awareness to their efforts.

Faithfully,

Brian S Brown


PS: I just heard from our friends at the Christian Institute that for the 4th time in 3 years Northern Ireland has rejected Same Sex Marriage! This is an incredible victory and should give us tremendous encouragement that we can pull off a victory in Ireland! Please take action today and then share this mail with your friends and encourage them to follow your example!
