Dear Friends of Marriage,
Many thanks to each of you who have already sent emails to Congress urging them to reject the Kagan nomination for Supreme Court.
Together, we have already sent Congress nearly 100,000 emails and faxes, telling them to vote NO on Elena Kagan's nomination to the Supreme Court.
And Washington is taking notice!
Here's what Politico had to say yesterday, in an article entitled "Gay Rights Central to Kagan Fight":
[A]s much as race or abortion have dominated past Supreme Court confirmation hearings, gay rights are likely to play a more central role in the upcoming fight over Elena Kagan than they have for any previous nominee. . . .
Within hours of Obama’s announcement of Kagan as his nominee, the National Organization for Marriage sent an e-mail to supporters under the subject: “A vote for Elena Kagan as Supreme Court Justice will be a vote for imposing gay marriage on all 50 states.” The group’s supporters have since Monday sent over 36,000 e-mails to committee members and senators, asking them to deny Kagan’s confirmation, according to Brian Brown, the executive director.
“She says there is no federal constitutional right to same-sex marriage. Well, currently that’s not the law,” Brown said of Kagan. “But in the future, could she create a constitutional right to same-sex marriage while being on the court? Undoubtedly, yes.”
Seldom, if ever, have we seen such a radical nominee to the nation's highest court -- much less one with no judicial experience and a scant paper trail by which to evaluate her judicial philosophy.
As I told the media on Monday, a vote for Elena Kagan will be a vote to impose same-sex marriage on all 50 states. Congress needs to know we won't stand for it!
Then don't forget to spread the word to friends and family . . . Forward this email or post on Facebook, or retweet on Twitter. Don't put it off -- do it right now. Together we are making a difference!
By the end of this year, our goal is to identify 2,000,000 marriage activists across the nation, supported by more than 50,000 donors. It's an ambitious goal, but imagine the power of two million Americans speaking with one voice in support of marriage.
Together we can make it happen. Please give your most generous gift today!
