Dear Marriage Supporter,
We have a plan.
As the US Supreme Court works on their opinion in the critical marriage case they are considering, Obergefell v Hodges, I often hear from supporters asking whether we have a plan in the event the court rules against us, illegitimately deciding that defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman is somehow unconstitutional.
Let me assure you, we do have a plan. In fact, I just met this week with our senior team of staff and advisors to go over the plan, and we will be putting final touches on it over the next several days
We know just what needs to be done. It's an aggressive plan that we pray will never have to see the light of day. Why do I say that? Because will have to implement it only if, God forbid, the Supreme Court does the unthinkable and decides that the true nature of marriage as God created it and as it has existed in virtually every civilization since the dawn of time is no longer the law in America. It's bizarre to even think of that as a possibility, but we have a plan ready to go if they do.
While we will be ready to act immediately when the US Supreme Court issues their decision — no matter what it is — it does concern me greatly that we do not have the financial resources in hand to implement our plan. As you know, we expended everything we had on the March for Marriage several weeks ago when we brought 15,000 marriage supporters to our nation's capitol to show the Court and our national leaders that the American people continue to support marriage and they are demanding that their votes and their values be upheld.
I need to ask you a tough question: are you as ready as we are to fight for marriage once the Supreme Court issues their decision? If so, I am asking you to make a generous donation today so that I know we can count on you to be there for the great cause of marriage.
The Court's decision is expected at the end of this month. Fortunately, one of our best supporters has told us he will stand with us to defend marriage no matter the outcome. And he has agreed to match every donation we receive through the end of June, up to $200,000.
Please tell me what you can do to help:
We also have a comprehensive plan in place if we win the marriage case later this month. Not only does it include fighting to preserve marriage in the many states where gay 'marriage' activists will attempt to put it on the ballot or overturn it legislatively, it includes protecting supporters of marriage against government discrimination, electing a pro-marriage champion to replace Barack Obama, educating the American people about the importance of marriage and working with the faith community to protect religious liberty.
Unlike our opponents who have the media, Hollywood and billionaire investors on their side, we depend on average Americans across the country to help us preserve marriage. That's why I am asking you to make a generous contribution today to support our important work.
And keep in mind, the timing couldn't be better. With the Supreme Court decision just around the corner, every dollar you give will result in another dollar to support NOM. So your contribution of $10 means $20 to support our work, every $100 will result in $200, etc.
Thank you for your support. Please pray daily that the Supreme Court does the right thing and upholds marriage, and give generously so that we are able to implement our plans no matter what they do.
