Urge Congress to Act to Defend Religious Liberty Today!

 


Dear Marriage Supporter

In the coming weeks it is crucial for the US Congress to act to protect the religious liberty right of people to act in concert with their sincerely held belief that marriage is and can only be the union of one man and one woman.

That's why NOM has been working tirelessly to promote the Marriage and Religious Freedom Act (MARFA). We are eagerly anticipating reintroduction of MARFA, which was introduced in the last Congress, but never brought to a vote.

MARFA will prohibit the federal government from taking an adverse action against a person on the basis of that person's religious belief about marriage. It is the best firewall we have to prevent federal discrimination including, denying or revoking certain tax exemptions or disallowing a deduction of any charitable contribution made to or by such person; denying or excluding such person from receiving any federal grant, contract, cooperative agreement, loan, license, certification, accreditation, employment, or similar position or status; or denying or withholding any benefit under a federal benefit program.

Rep. Raul Labrador in the US House of Representatives and Sen. Mike Lee in the US Senate are championing this bill.

Please click here to contact you US Representative and US Senator today. Tell them to contact Rep. Labrador and Sen. Lee to become an original co-sponsor of this important legislation.

The American people want common sense and fairness. They do not want the Federal Government targeting any person for their religious beliefs, including their beliefs on marriage.

And once you've taken action, please forward this email to family and friends using the sharing buttons below, asking them to do the same.


Faithfully,
