The March For Marriage Is On!

 



Dear Marriage Supporter,

Great news — we've received official word that our permit application for the 2016 March for Marriage has been approved, and we are moving forward! The March is set for Saturday, June 25th, from 11:30am until 2:00pm. Please mark your calendar to attend and spread the word to everyone that you know.

This year's March will protest the outrageous, anti-constitutional and illegitimate decision of the US Supreme Court redefining marriage. This was a decision wholly unsupported by the law and lacking any legal foundation. The majority simply legislated from the bench, imposing their own values on the country. In the process, they stripped over 50 million voters and countless legislators in states across America of their sovereign right to define marriage as the union of one man and one woman.

We have a lot to do to get ready for this year's March for Marriage, and we're asking for your help. Your tax deductible contribution of $25, $50, $75, $100 or $250 or more will help us cover the substantial costs involved in putting on an event like this. We need money for security, promotion, signs, staging, sound engineering, etc. Your financial gift will be put to immediate use to help us prepare for this critical event.

We are also marching to protest the imposition of a dangerous gender ideology by LGBT extremists and the Obama administration. They want to risk the privacy and safety of girls and women by allowing men who claim a female "gender identity" to force their way into bathrooms, showers, changing areas and locker rooms. These extremists mock God's admonition that He made us male and female, and they want our children and grandchildren to believe that they can simply "choose" their gender. And worse, our children and grandchildren will be taught that there are multiple genders — several dozen, the extremists claim — and anyone who does not accept their bizarre ideology will be guilty of discrimination and open themselves to lawsuits, fines and reputational ruin. They even want to severely punish anyone who does not address a transgender person by their preferred pronoun — which includes some bizarre, nonsensical words like ze and hir — subjecting people to potential fines up to $250,000 in some jurisdictions.

Finally, we will march to demand that Congress and our elected representatives do something to stop the Obama madness and protect us from the Supreme Court's anti-constitutional redefinition of marriage while we work to undo it. In the short run, we demand that Congress pass the First Amendment Defense Act to provide legal protections for supporters of traditional marriage from being persecuted by the government. It's also critical that the next president be committed to appointing strict constitutionalists to the US Supreme Court: judges who will implement the law, not make it up to satisfy politically influential groups like the LGBT lobby.

I realize time is short to pull off a successful 2016 March for Marriage, which is why we need your immediate help. First, please mark your calendar and make every effort to attend this year's March and invite all your friends and family to join you.

And second, please make an immediate financial contribution to help us undertake all the activities that are required to make the March successful. Your tax deductible donation of $25, $50, $100, $250 or $500 or more will go a long way toward organizing a successful March.

The 2016 March for Marriage is a critically important milestone that will send a powerful message to the elite, including those in Congress and on the federal judiciary, that the American people continue to believe that marriage is the union of one man and one woman, and that we reject the dangerous gender-bending ideology that has been the inevitable aftermath of redefining marriage. We must focus our elected officials and the American people on reversing these developments, and the March is a tremendous opportunity to do so.

Please do everything you can to make the 2016 March for Marriage a success, including attending, asking your friends and family to attend, and making an urgently-needed financial contribution to help us defray the costs of organizing the March.

Faithfully,

Brian S Brown
