Dear Marriage Supporter,
The National Organization for Marriage is on the forefront of fighting for the freedom of all U.S. citizens by promoting the dignity of marriage, the family, and religious liberty. Our message is your message — — but it needs to be amplified and shared across the country to every citizen — young and old.
Our message isn't one just for parents, or conservatives, or religious people — it is truly a message for everyone to take notice. If we don't, our society is doomed to a perversion of everything this country has stood for since its founding.
At NOM, we take an active role in defending our religious freedom, fighting for the family, and the preservation of marriage and the faith communities that sustain it.
Many people know that NOM plays a highly visible role in the fight from our high-profile organization of the annual March for Marriage in the nation's capitol, to helping organize and promote efforts to defend marriage champions like Kim Davis, our efforts to work with prospective presidential candidates and our leadership of state referenda and ballot measure campaigns. But you may not be aware of the quiet leadership role we play behind the scenes to nurture and develop a thriving marriage movement. Let me mention three such major initiatives:
- Campaign for Houston is a campaign to reject the Houston special rights initiative and is the leading campaign to reject the special rights ordinance in Houston. NOM strongly urges you to support their efforts. The City Council has passed a notorious ordinance, pushed by the city's lesbian mayor, that gives special legal rights to people claiming to be "transgendered" — including men who claim to identify as women — the right to use the restrooms reserved for the opposite sex.
- The coalition "Protect Life and Marriage OK!" includes community leaders, pastors, legislators, homemakers, employees and entrepreneurs who have united in support of Oklahoma's constitutional authority to protect natural, traditional marriage and to protect innocent, unborn children from the unjust, unlawful U.S. Supreme Court actions that have invented a constitutional right for same-sex "marriage" and that have led to the abortion of over 58 million unborn children. The coalition held a huge rally this past Sunday that gathered several thousand marriage supporters. NOM was proud to have helped promote this event.
- For the first time, the World Congress of Families — a global nonprofit organization that promotes the natural family — is meeting in the United States. The Congress is the world's premier pro-family gathering and is being held this week in Salt Lake City. I am attending with others from around the world who are speaking the truth about marriage and the importance of promoting the natural family. We hope to learn from each other and broadly promote the importance of the natural family.
These are just three examples of the unique and important leadership role that NOM plays in undertaking and promoting the fight for marriage and family. We are the only group in America that is solely focused on preserving marriage and supporting the rights of children to receive the love of their mother and father.
But to continue this leadership role and to continue being effective, we need your financial support — please consider a gift today.
A generous donor who recognizes the critical importance of our work has agreed to match every donation you make through the end of this year. Won't you please consider making a donation of $15, $25, $50, $100 or even $250 or more so that NOM has the resources to continue to advocate for the truth of marriage and the rights of children and parents and for religious liberty. Whatever you can give will be gratefully appreciated, and will be instantly matched, doubling your impact and put to immediate use.
Your generous gift will allow NOM to continue its effort to make your voice heard across the country. If NOM's voice, your voice, OUR VOICE, disappears — it will be a very dark day fo American families and, indeed, for the nation. We must continue the fight or we will lose our religious liberty and allow illegitimate laws and immoral Supreme Court decisions to prevail.
We cannot let this happen. At times the deck seems stacked against us — but this is precisely the time we need to redouble our efforts and make our voice heard.
Please consider making a generous donation to help NOM continue the fight on your behalf — helping to make your voice heard. Your gift will be doubled thanks to a generous supporter. Your gift of $50.00 becomes $100.00 and $150.00 becomes $300.00. Support NOM today so we can protect your rights and the rights of all Americans.
Thank you for all you are doing to preserve marriage and the faith communities that sustain it.
P.S. This is a critical time in our history — we must fight on and continue defending our religious freedom, fighting for the family, and the preservation of marriage and the faith communities that sustain it. Be part of the solution and support NOM today! And remember — every dollar you give will immediately be matched!
