The Choice is Clear

Dear Marriage Supporter, When any elected person takes office in the state of Kansas, he or she must take an oath, solemnly affirming or swearing to uphold Kansas’s Laws and Constitution. So, what would you think of a candidate running for the highest office in the state—that of Governor—who couldn’t say if he would defend […]

October Surprise

Dear Marriage Supporter, I dropped many of you a letter with this news, but I couldn’t wait for it to arrive to tell you that I just spoke with one of our most generous and heroic donors—and he has agreed to extend the matching gift challenge through November 4th! As long as we hear back […]

Downright Chilling

Dear Marriage Supporter, Having been in the trenches of the marriage debate for most of the past decade, I’ve been vocal about the growing threats on the horizon — especially with respect to the dangers the same-sex ‘marriage’ agenda presents for people of faith and religious liberty. All too often, I’ve been called an “alarmist” […]

Purple Penguins and Blue Republicans

Dear Marriage Supporter, This week has seen a flurry of news activity following the Supreme Court’s shameful decision on Monday. The Justices dodges the marriage question and allowed standing several lower court rulings that trample the will of tens of millions of voters who worked to define marriage in their state constitutions as the union […]

Demand Action Now!

Dear Marriage Supporter, “It’s not the way our system is supposed to work…. The very form of our government, a republican form of government, is at stake.” I said these words in an interview with NBC this week in response to the Supreme Court’s move on Monday to skirt the issue of marriage and to […]

As the Dust Settles, Our Road is Clear

Dear Marriage Supporter, By now you will already surely have heard the news from yesterday that the Supreme Court elected not to take any of the pending marriage cases contesting the issues of the right of self-determination in government and the purview of the states to regulate marriage. Before I say anything more, I must […]

One More Day

Dear Marriage Supporter, We have now entered the closing hours of our unique matching gift campaign, and I want to urge all of our pro-marriage supporters to dig deep today and contribute if they haven’t already, before the clock runs out on this great opportunity. Please, if you haven’t donated yet—or even if you have, […]

What I'm Up To Today

Dear Marriage Supporter, I need to be brief this week, because I am in Washington, D.C. attending the Values Voter Summit and there’s more to do and see here than there are hours in a day! If you have a chance, you can tune in to watch the livestream of this great event here on […]

Are You Fed Up With Washington?

Dear Marriage Supporter, Are you frustrated with politics and politicians? I certainly am. It seems like there’s no accountability… that all too often elected officials don’t live up to their promises or even outright break them. Well, you and I have the opportunity to change that this November! Won’t you please consider making a donation […]

The Next Six Months

Dear Marriage Supporter I want first of all to express my gratitude to the many people that have donated to our matching gift challenge over the last 24 hours. If you haven’t taken advantage of this great opportunity to double the impact of your gift, won’t you please do so today? We are about to […]

A Major Victory

Dear Marriage Supporter, Earlier this week, a federal district judge in Louisiana issued a key decision finding that the marriage amendment passed in 2004 by 78% of the voters of that state does not run afoul of the U.S. Constitution’s guarantees of Equal Protection and Due Process. Accordingly, Judge Feldman ruled against the several plaintiffs’ […]

Why I Think We'll Win

Dear Marriage Supporter, Although it has been a mild summer, things are heating up in the fight to defend marriage. In just a few months, we will be facing a potential turning point in the political arena, as NOM will be working with many other groups to retake the United States Senate and hold politicians […]

"Coercive Big Government Run Amok"

Dear Marriage Supporter, “This is coercive big government run amok.” That is the phrase The Daily Signal has used to describe a recent bit of news from New York state which represents only the latest act of bullying and intimidation by the same-sex marriage lobby against those of us who refuse to step in line […]

Worth Your Attention: TN and VA Court Decisions

Dear Marriage Supporter, Great news! Yesterday, the US Supreme Court intervened to grant a stay — a delay in the implementation of a lower court’s ruling pending legal appeal — in Virginia, halting the redefinition of marriage in its tracks in the Old Dominion! The justice in charge of reviewing petitions in the 4th circuit […]

A Hopeful Outlook

Dear Marriage Supporter, In this week’s marriage news, the big story is a big win from the courts in Tennessee. A Tennessee state judge has ruled that the state’s constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman—which was passed by an 81 percent majority of voters in 2006—does not violate […]
