It's Working

Our push to urge Members of Congress to introduce legislation to protect people of faith from governmental persecution for living out the truth of marriage in their daily lives and at work is working. Thousands of people have reached out to members of Congress urging them to introduce and support the First Amendment Defense Act […]

Eleventh Hour Fight in Illinois

Dear Marriage Supporter, It’s hard to believe that the legislature, facing issues like a $100 billion budget shortfall and the corresponding desperately needed pension reform, is spending hours of the taxpayers’ time lobbying behind closed doors for same-sex ‘marriage’! But even if the legislature didn’t have other pressing issues and higher priorities that they were […]

Hawaii, Please Contact Your Legislators Today

Dear Marriage Supporter, We’ve all been incredibly moved to see the tremendous outpouring of support for marriage at the grassroots level all across the state of Hawaii. The rally last week at the statehouse was incredible — a reported 10,000 people attended! And thousands more have submitted testimony in opposition to SB 1, the proposed […]

Victory is Just Hours Away

Dear Marriage Supporter, In just a few hours, the polls will open in Virginia and voters will make their decision on electing their next Governor. The race is very close between Ken Cuccinelli, a principled pro-marriage, pro-life champion, and Terry McAuliffe, the discredited former chief of the Clinton Administration. Turnout is key and every vote […]

Crunch Time in Illinois: Vote to Redefine Marriage Reportedly to Be Scheduled for Next Week

Dear Marriage Supporter, Several news reports and discussions with Illinois pro-family leaders point to backers of same-sex marriage bringing the issue to the floor of the state House of Representatives for a vote next week. This is crunch time — please contact your state House Representative immediately to urge him or her to vote against […]

The Senate is Building a Trojan Horse

Dear Marriage Supporter, A bill coming up for a vote in the Senate next-week innocuously named the “Employee Non-Discrimination Act of 2013 (ENDA)” is nothing other than a Trojan horse built to attack the foundational institution of marriage between a man and a woman. This disastrous piece of legislation is modeled on various local and […]

Time is Short to Stop the Bullying of Children in School Showers and Bathrooms

Dear Marriage Supporter, Our children face enough struggles at school without having to worry about being harassed and bullied by someone of the opposite sex forcing their way into the most vulnerable areas of public schools — showers, bathrooms, changing areas and locker rooms. But that’s exactly what is going to happen if a new […]

Support Ken Cuccinelli - a True Champion for Marriage and Life

Dear Marriage Supporter, NOM is honored to support Virginia’s Attorney General — Ken Cuccinelli — in his campaign for Governor of the Commonwealth. Cuccinelli is facing off against Clinton crony Terry McAuliffe, an ardent pro-abortion, pro-marriage-redefinitionist. The election is one week from today — on November 5th. Many of the polls show that McAuliffe leads […]

What It All Means, NOM Marriage News, October 25, 2013

Dear Marriage Supporter, This week the battle for marriage in our country has taught us quite a lot about what this fight means for us and for our country. It has also taught us a lot about the meaning of some other things we take for granted. What Leadership Means In New Jersey this week, […]

Bathroom Backlash

Dear Marriage Supporter, Let me start by thanking all of you who responded to our request to support the referendum to overturn California’s incredible new co-ed bathroom law. And then let me gently persuade any of you who have not signed a referendum petition and made a donation to help this effort. I know it […]

Christie Surrender Provides an Object Lesson in (Lack of) Leadership

Dear Marriage Supporter, This past Monday was a sad day for New Jersey and the nation as we watched Governor Chris Christie surrender on marriage. His backing down also provides an important object lesson in leadership (or lack of it) and gives us a great opportunity to contrast what happened in New Jersey with what’s […]

Dear Marriage Supporter, I want to begin today by sharing with you the video of the panel I participated in last week at the Values Voter Summit on The Future of Marriage with the wonderful Ryan Anderson and Jennifer Marshall from The Heritage Foundation.

A Learning Opportunity

Dear Marriage Supporter, OK, sometimes late is better than never. If you have the opportunity this evening, you are invited to Princeton University to hear Ryan T. Anderson, William E. Simon Fellow at the Heritage Foundation, on the consequences of redefining marriage. He is the co-author of What is Marriage? Man and Woman: A Defense. […]

How the Left Does it

Dear Marriage Supporter In recent days, it has become clearer than ever that the fight to defend true marriage is a fight for the very identity and destiny of our great nation. Marriage is the foundation that supports our country, and we simply cannot have a well-functioning nation if we destroy the marriage culture. But […]
