We Must Fight On!

Dear Marriage Supporter, Last week’s US Supreme Court ruling on marriage is an illegitimate decision and a gross example of legislating from the bench! Plain and simple, what the small majority (5/4) of the justices has done is simply invent a constitutional right to same-sex ‘marriage’ out of thin air, and invalidated the decision of […]

Support the First Amendment Defense Act Today!

Dear Marriage Supporter, As you know, a 5-4 ruling of the US Supreme Court has resulted in marriage being redefined, with genderless ‘marriage’ now being imposed on every state in the nation. This is a terrible decision that entirely lacks constitutional authority. NOM is committed to working to reverse this decision over time. But until […]

All Eyes on the Supreme Court

Dear Marriage Supporter, The US Supreme Court decision on marriage will come down either tomorrow or Monday. Of course, no matter what the Court does decide, they cannot ever change the truth of marriage. Marriage is not a political institution that can be reshaped to suit a popular ideology. It is an institution with a […]

It's Crunch Time!

Dear Marriage Supporter, By this time next week, we will know whether or not the Supreme Court believes our federal constitution prohibits states from defining marriage as the union between one man and one woman. It seems absurd — the very idea that traditional marriage could be unconstitutional is beyond rational comprehension. But that is […]

Happy Father's Day!

Dear Marriage Supporter, I know that many of you are anxious to start your weekend so I will keep this newsletter brief. I’d like to begin with a heartfelt “thank you” to all of you who are fathers and who take your awesome responsibilities seriously. As the father of eight myself, I know that being […]

NOM Update: Support the 1st Amendment Defense Act

Dear Marriage Supporter, A vital piece of legislation was just introduced by Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Rep. Raul Labrador (R-Idaho), and NOM urges you to ask your elected officials to support it just as we are. This critical bill — the First Amendment Defense Act or FADA — has a simple purpose: “To prevent […]

Congress is Stepping Up to Support Marriage and Religious Freedom

Dear Marriage Supporter, The Congress is about to take major action to protect Americans who believe that marriage is the union of one man and one woman, and we must act immediately to support them. Senator Mike Lee and Rep. Raul Labrador announced yesterday that they have introduced the First Amendment Defense Act (S. 1598, […]

We Seek a Champion

Dear Marriage Supporter, I’ve got big news to announce: NOM has just issued our 2016 Presidential Pledge to all the Republican candidates running for President of the United States. As you may recall, the NOM Presidential Pledge was extremely influential in the 2012 Republican primary process. Not only did every major Republican candidate sign our […]

Act Today to Uphold Marriage and Religious Liberty in North Carolina

Dear Marriage Supporter, As you may have heard, last week the North Carolina Senate overrode Governor Pat McCrory’s incredibly uninformed veto of critically important legislation to protect marriage and religious liberty. That was a great victory, but we are not done yet because now the House in North Carolina also needs to override McCrory’s veto. […]

We Have a Plan

Dear Marriage Supporter, We have a plan. As the US Supreme Court works on their opinion in the critical marriage case they are considering, Obergefell v Hodges, I often hear from supporters asking whether we have a plan in the event the court rules against us, illegitimately deciding that defining marriage as the union of […]

Take Action Now! Defend Marriage and Religious Liberty in North Carolina!

Dear Marriage Supporter, You may have heard that the North Carolina House passed a bill that would protect magistrates and registers of deeds who have deeply-held religious objections to personally performing same-sex ‘marriage’ ceremonies. With this legislation, government officials would be put in the terrible position of having to choose between keeping their job or […]

Our Chance...

Dear Marriage Supporter, You know what we have done together standing for the truth that marriage is the union of one man and one woman. Whether bringing nearly 15,000 diverse supporters of marriage to our nation’s capital for the March for Marriage or supporting legislation that will protect our First Freedom to act and speak […]

A Blessed And Grateful Nation

Dear Marriage Supporter, Today the nation honors those heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice, members of the military who gave their lives in defense of the principles upon which our nation was founded. I hope that each of you will take a moment to pause and pray for those brave men and women, and their […]

Marriage And Religious Liberty In The Early Presidential Race

Dear Marriage Supporter, One of NOM’s primary goals in the coming months and year is to raise the profile of the marriage and religious liberty issues in anticipation of the coming presidential election next year — particularly in key swing and early voting states like Iowa. And we’ve been remarkably successful in the early going! […]
