Making the Argument

Dear Marriage Supporter, “No rational basis.” Those are the words our opponents throw around about laws that recognize marriage for what it has always been, the union of one man and one woman. They are repeated often in academia, and tragically have been picked up by judges who have cavalierly invalidated vote after vote enacting […]

Still no answers...

Dear Marriage Supporter, It’s been nearly a week since we announced our boycott and petition against JP Morgan Chase. Since then, over five thousand activists have signed up at www.VoidChase.com to demand answers and an apology from the bank for the invasive and inappropriate survey issued to employees that sought to discover whether they were […]

Sham Science

Dear Marriage Supporter, You may have read the completely misleading headline this week: “Children of Same Sex Couples are Happier and Healthier than Peers, Research Shows” (Washington Post, July 7). The sensationalized headline is yet another example of the mainstream media and their active agenda to push the redefinition of marriage across America. You’ll remember […]

Where Could It End?

Dear Marriage Supporter, It is an unfortunate yet very real fact that a small cadre of radical activists is enjoying increasing success in the corporate world imposing their agenda through bullying and intimidation. Tragically, their strategy of confrontation and intimidation has real impact on ordinary, good citizens all across the country. One of NOM’s core […]

Family, the Foundation of Freedom

Dear Marriage Supporter, On this great holiday set aside to honor America’s formation, it’s appropriate to consider those individuals whose vision and foresight birthed this great nation. There are only six of the Founding Fathers of the United States of America who bear the distinction of having signed both the Declaration of Independence and the […]

Is JP Morgan Chase the next Mozilla?

Dear Marriage Supporter, We all watched in disbelief when Brendan Eich, CEO of Mozilla, was forced to resign his position because six years earlier he had contributed $1,000 to support California’s Proposition 8 campaign preserving marriage in that state as the union of one man and one woman. Eich was run out of the company […]

It's Time to Act

Dear Marriage Supporter, Even though the IRS has agreed to pay us $50,000 and admitted they were responsible for the illegal release of our confidential tax return and donor information, there’s still so much we don’t know about this scandal. Despite the heroic work of our legal team to hold the IRS accountable, there is […]

Plenty to Watch this Weekend

Dear Marriage Supporter, We’ve all been there: turning on the TV and flipping through the channels before declaring in exasperation, “There’s nothing on!” Of course, there’s plenty “on” but nothing worthwhile seeing. This weekend, then, instead of turning on the TV to search in frustration for the ever-dwindling selection of decent programming, why not check […]

An Example for Us All

Dear Marriage Supporter, One of the biggest pieces of news about the March for Marriage last Thursday is something that you probably won’t read about in most of the major outlets. The March was honored by the presence of a very special guest: the official representative of Pope Francis himself, the Apostolic Nuncio to the […]

You Could Be the Difference

Dear Marriage Supporter, There’s only one person on tomorrow’s ballot for Congress in the 22nd District who is a true conservative — Claudia Tenney — and I urge you to make sure you vote for her in tomorrow’s primary. She is running against the shockingly liberal, pro-abortion and pro-gay marriage incumbent Richard Hanna. It’s critical […]

Did You See It?

Dear Marriage Supporters, Did you see yesterday’s March for Marriage? What a day it was! Several thousand Americans — people from across the spectrum of America — Men and Women, African Americans and Latinos, Orthodox Jews, Evangelicals and Catholics, young and old — stood together in defense of marriage between one man and one woman. […]

Watch Live Now

Dear Marriage Supporter This is it — the Second Annual March for Marriage kicks off in two hours at 11:00 AM EDT! And so does our live stream! If you’re not in DC with us, you can still participate in several ways. The fight to defend marriage in the legal, political, and cultural spheres is […]

Only One Day Left

Dear Marriage Supporter, THIS IS IT — only one day to go before the 2014 March for Marriage. I have been thrilled by the response from so many of you over the past several months and look forward to marching with thousands of marriage supporters like yourself from all across the country, rallying in Washington […]

TUNE IN LIVE!

Dear Marriage Supporter, We are now just two days away from the historic 2014 March for Marriage! I hope you’ve been able to make your plans to join us in the nation’s capital as we rally and march with marriage leaders and supporters from all across the country. But if you can’t make it, here […]

Good News!

Dear Marriage Supporter, I don’t know if you heard the news that came out on Friday of last week, but a Federal judge in the state of Wisconsin has wisely stayed her ruling overturning the state’s constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman. Her reasoning in staying the decision […]
