The Real Question

Dear Marriage Supporter, Definitions are important. They are the means by which we can reason together and communicate ideas intelligibly. Without definitions, social organization becomes impossible. The great English writer and Christian polemicist G.K. Chesterton illustrated this principle very clearly in his book Orthodoxy, by taking to task his friend, H.G. Wells, for a particular […]

Invest in Marriage. Invest in America.

Dear Marriage Supporter, This week, our good friends at The Heritage Foundation released The 2014 Index of Culture and Opportunity, a research document that “tracks key social and economic indicators to determine whether important indicators of opportunity in America are on the right track [and] … explores the factors that shape our capacity as a […]

You Don't Want to Miss This

Dear Marriage Supporter, Our good friend Rick Santorum will be premiering a new feature documentary tonight at the Heritage Foundation. The film is called One Generation Away: The Erosion of Religious Liberty. The film “goes to the front lines of the changing face of America’s religious freedoms, discovering a series of dramatic shifts in how […]

They're At It Again

Dear Marriage Supporter, I told you in this week’s newsletter about the assault being waged by radical gay activists over the hiring by the New York Giants of former celebrated wide receiver David Tyree, because he has publicly expressed his belief in the Biblical values of marriage and family. (In fact, Tyree was featured in […]

Unsportsmanlike Conduct

Dear Marriage Supporter, It has long been clear that same-sex marriage activists don’t want a fair and even-sided debate. They don’t want honest public discourse that hears both sides. They want instead the enforcement of double standards that work to bolster their own side while silencing any opposition. To take one instance: the oft-repeated call […]

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 […]
