One Day Left!

National Organization for Marriage

Dear Marriage Supporter,

We only have one more day in our push to fully realize the matching funds available to us through Election Day.

Won't you please click here to make an immediate, generous contribution of $35, $50, $100, $500 or even $1,000 or more to help us close the gap and fully realize the $500,000 available in matching funds before time runs out Tuesday night?

Remember, if you donate right now, your gift will be DOUBLED... matched dollar-for-dollar by another heroic donor.

Over the weekend and this morning, my staff calculated that we have raised approximately $50,000 through the mail recently. In addition, we've had some major donors make generous gifts, bringing our overall total raised to date over $350,000.

That leaves almost $150,000 in matching funds still on the table!

Tomorrow is Election Day and NOM has raised the marriage issue in several key races — particularly in Arkansas and North Carolina where our TV ads are up and running and making an impact!

But we've done so much more than that — intervening in races in support of marriage champions and trying to block those who want to strip the protection of marriage from the Republican Party platform.

Whatever the outcome of the elections, let me assure you that NOM will continue to be active... defending marriage in Congress, in the media and in the public square — wherever and whenever it is threatened!

Will you join us today?

Please click here to invest in the defense of marriage with a generous gift right away, secure in the knowledge that your gift will be matched by a generous donor.

Faithfully,

Want room for ideology in your coffee?

The pro-same-sex marriage corporate behemoth Starbucks has taken its ideologically-driven LGBT agenda to a new level with a new ad featuring two reality TV star drag queens.

The ad feature Bianca Del Rio and Adore Delano, two drag queens from a reality TV show on the LGBT network, OUTtv.

Thus Starbucks continues to serve up a healthy dose of ideology added in with the cream and sugar in its cups of coffee. It's as good a reason as ever to Dump Starbucks if you haven't made the commitment to do so already.

Reject Monica Wehby's Campaign For Gay 'Marriage' and Abortion...And for the US Senate

National Organization for Marriage

Dear Marriage Supporter,

It wasn't long ago that Monica Wehby was riding high, having captured the Republican nomination for US Senate and being looked at by leaders in Washington as a new face for the Republican Party. A highly educated physician, considered a moderate, she was just the type of candidate many in the GOP Washington elite like to support.

Consistent with her own views, she then made a move that some of these Republican leaders in Washington praised, but countless others, especially those of us in the grassroots, rejected:

She embraced same-sex 'marriage' with a vengeance, even paying for a statewide television commercial featuring two gay men who had sued to overturn the votes of Oregonians in favor of the state marriage amendment.

That was the beginning of the end of Monica Wehby's chances of winning election to the US Senate.

Now her campaign is in tatters. If you have not already sent in your ballot, I urge you refuse to vote for Monica Wehby. Just skip the race entirely and refuse to let someone who abandons principle get your support.

Wehby's defeat will also send a powerful message to Republican leaders and the elite who wish to abandon principle and back candidates like Wehby. Not only has she abandoned the truth of marriage, she also has embraced abortion.

As you well know, in endorsing same-sex 'marriage' Wehby threw a sop to the left, hoping to attract support from Democrats and Independents who, she calculated, would favor this move. And she figured that Republicans would have no choice but to stay with her.

The calculation was fatal to her campaign, for two reasons.

First, she apparently forgot that Oregon's marriage amendment was passed with strong support among Democrats and Independents. She also failed to appreciate that all citizens regardless of party affiliation rightly resent the state of Oregon refusing to defend their vote for marriage and allowing gay activists to redefine marriage by default. This behavior by people like state Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum was totally disrespectful of voters and an affront to democracy itself. Yet Wehby embraced this duplicity.

Second, Wehby miscalculated in believing Republicans and conservatives had no choice but to support her. Actually we have the choice of refusing to support her.

And that is exactly the choice we are asking you to make. Skip the race. Send a Message. And then let's look for a real Republican, someone who represents all our values of liberty, economic prosperity, national security and support for the family to support in the future.

Thank you for your consideration. We look forward to the rejection of Monica Wehby's policies, and candidacy, on Tuesday.

Faithfully,

Brian S Brown

"Government should respect the rights of all citizens."

In The Daily Signal, Ryan Anderson of Heritage writes:

It’s hard to imagine a more bedrock American right than being free to live according to your religious convictions. The very idea of being forced to violate your beliefs seems unthinkable.

Unless you happen to believe that marriage refers exclusively to the union of a man and a woman. Because more and more often, the government is penalizing and coercing those who simply wish to be free to live in accordance with that belief.

[...]

[B]ecause various state and local governments have passed laws creating special privileges based on “sexual orientation and gender identity” (dubbed SOGI) [...] government harassment is likely to increase. For it treats the belief that marriage is the union of a man and woman as if it were insidious discrimination.

But it shouldn’t. Even if the government recognizes same-sex relationships as marriages, it need not and should not require any third party to recognize a same-sex relationship as a marriage. Government should respect the rights of all citizens.

Indeed, a form of government respectful of free association, free contracts, free speech and free exercise of religion should protect citizens’ rights to live according to their beliefs about marriage.

Marriage is an election issue: North Carolina edition

NOM has consistently maintained that marriage is an election issue that motivates voters, despite pundits and political elites trying increasingly to steer conservative candidates away from the social issues.

181992631The elections this week will only demonstrate further how right NOM has been and how misguided the cronies that continue to gain a hearing by the Republican establishment despite their failure to demonstrate a winning strategy.

For a case in point, consider an Associated Press piece published yesterday on the Senate race in North Carolina, bearing the headline, "Canceled NC marriage ban could alter Senate result." The article notes:

At the very least, some Republicans angry with the rulings say they're more energized to get others to the polls. They acknowledge that they can't get rid of lifetime federal judges but can send a message to prevent likeminded ones from reaching the bench.

"We want to get these judges out and want to get these senators out," Donna Annis, 60, of Clayton said after the rally. "We very obviously voted that we did not want gay marriage, and so (when) one judge says, 'well, too bad'... we don't want those people anymore."

The article highlights Senate candidate Thom Tillis's defense in court of North Carolina's marriage amendment, which was passed by an overwhelming majority of voters in just 2012:

Tillis' actions... could play well with people unhappy with courts canceling the decisions of voters.

The latest Associated Press-GfK national poll has 56 percent of likely voters saying it was inappropriate for the federal courts to issue rulings that overturn state same-sex marriage laws. And while the Elon University Poll in September found more likely voters supporting gay marriage than opposing it, a new Elon poll performed after the North Carolina amendment was struck down found 50 percent opposing gay marriage and 38 percent supporting it.

While Equality NC's political arm has distributed 15,000 voter guides that highlight its strong Hagan support and operating a nightly phone bank, social conservatives are marshalling larger ground forces.
Those larger ground forces will come out in force in tomorrow's election, and will send Thom Tillis to Washington. Let it be a lesson to the political establishment that marriage is an election issue - and that a stance for marriage is a stance that wins.

The Final Push!

National Organization for Marriage

Dear Marriage Supporter,

As I'm sitting down to write this email, I see that we've raised $250,000 in matching gift funds — about half of what is available to us.

So many have generously given, and I offer you my sincerest thanks for their generosity... but there are still thousands of people reading this email right now who have yet to make a donation.

Marriage Supporter, I need your help to reach our goal of $500,000, taking full advantage of this incredible opportunity to secure the funds we need to defend marriage and the faith communities that sustain it in the political fight.

Won't you please click here to make a generous contribution of $35, $50, $100, $500 or even $1,000 or more to help us close the gap and fully realize the $500,000 available in matching funds?

Your gift — of any amount — will be instantly matched, doubling its impact in the fight to defend marriage!

I am having my staff comb through our records this weekend to make sure the returns coming in through the mail are added to the total. But even with those substantial returns — and thank you also to everyone who has mailed us a check recently — we have a long way to go!

Tomorrow and Tuesday NOM will be launching our major, online, get-out-the-vote efforts to ensure that marriage supporters turn out to swing the critical — and extremely close — elections in favor of the marriage champions running for office.

Won't you please support these last minute efforts with a generous gift right away?

The media wants people to believe that support for marriage is falling fast because they don't want marriage to be a factor in these close races. But the opposite is true.

A poll this week in the critical state of North Carolina revealed that 72% of voters believe marriage is the union of one man and one woman — an 11% increase from the 61% of voters who supported the marriage amendment we helped enact in 2012!

Your support has helped us spend nearly $200,000 on a TV ad and mailer in the critical race for US Senate in North Carolina, contrasting Thom Tillis' record of championing the marriage amendment with Kay Hagan's opposition to it, and her nomination of the federal judge who invalidated the amendment without so much as giving voters their day in court. Our challenge now is to get all the pro-marriage voters in North Carolina to the polls.

We have similar challenges in the Arkansas Senate race where we have a TV ad running opposing Mark Pryor and supporting pro-marriage champion Tom Cotton.

So, you can see how important our grassroots voter turnout effort is. It could make the difference in these two Senate races, not to mention several US House contests where we are also working hard.

Immediately following the elections, NOM will be meeting with the newly elected to discuss the upcoming term and what bills need to be advanced to protect marriage and religious liberty. We hope to be launching major media efforts targeting Washington DC to help advance the marriage agenda and we will be organizing the 2015 March for Marriage... so anything you donate WILL be put to immediate and effective use.

Please consider investing in the defense of marriage with a generous gift right away, secure in the knowledge that your gift will be matched by a generous donor.

Faithfully,

Brian S Brown

PS: We are making a last minute push to turn out pro-marriage voters all across the country in an effort to tip the scales in many, many extremely close races for federal and state office. After the election we will immediately shift to launching several key initiatives designed to make a dramatic impact in the fight to defend marriage. Please — especially if you haven't yet made a donation to the matching gift campaign — click here right away to help us reach our goal of $500,000 before the elections conclude on Tuesday night.

I Stand Sunday

istandsunday2

Christians across America are joining I Stand Sunday this weekend, November 2, 2014, as speakers from across the nation gather at Grace Community Church in Houston, Texas to focus on the freedom to live out our faith free of government intrusion or monitoring.

We will stand with pastors and churches in Houston, Texas who have been unduly intimidated by the city's Mayor in demanding they hand over private church communication.

Watch the free, live simulcast above beginning at 6:00 p.m. CT/7:00 p.m. ET on Sunday (program duration is approx. 90 minutes), or the rebroadcast at 8:10PM CT/9:10 p.m. ET.

Remember to stand for religious freedom online as well by using the hashtag #IStandSunday.

Stand This Sunday

National Organization for Marriage

Dear Marriage Supporter,

I mentioned in a previous email that NOM is partnering with Family Research Council and many other pro-family and faith-based organizations for a special event this Sunday evening: I Stand Sunday.

The website explains why we're gathering in Houston on Sunday and simulcasting this event around the web:

Speakers from across the nation will gather at Grace Community Church in Houston, Texas to focus on the freedom to live out our faith free of government intrusion or monitoring. We will stand with pastors and churches in Houston, Texas who have been unduly intimidated by the city's Mayor in demanding they hand over private church communication.

This great event is not to be missed, and NOM will be webcasting it live at 7 PM ET on November 2nd. Click here and bookmark the page if you want to tune in:

It is important that we stand up in the face of attacks on religious liberty and basic first amendment freedoms like we saw in Houston.

It's important because it works.

Just the past few days we've seen examples of how it works...

Remember the story about the school district that told teachers to stop using "gendered phrases such as 'boys and girls'... [or] 'ladies and gentleman'" that I wrote about recently? The policy caused outcry and backlash for the school district that I'm sure they didn't expect. And guess what?

THE SCHOOL DISTRICT IS BACKING DOWN.

Remember the story about the city threatening a married couple of ordained ministers with fines or even jail time if they refused to celebrate same-sex 'marriages'? The Alliance Defending Freedom took up the case, and nationally there was a wave of protest and indignation about this violation of the couple's conscience rights. Well, guess what?

THE CITY IS BACKING DOWN.

And on Sunday, when we gather in Houston with Family Research Council and the pastors who were unjustly targeted with intimidation and threats by the Mayor, we won't just be calling attention to the cause of religious liberty and the dangers it faces—we'll also be, in a small way, celebrating. Because, guess what?

THE MAYOR IS BACKING DOWN.

Of course we cannot allow such victories as these to lull us into complacency. We must continue to fight for the cause of marriage and for conscience rights and protection of religious liberty.

On the other hand, though, we must also allow these stories to encourage us to keep up that fight.

These shifts show us that we still have the power to make a difference for the better when we stand together and with one voice speak up for the Truth. They show us that we need to continue to stand together, and stand together more closely and more firmly than before.

That why I would ask you today, if you haven't done so already, to please consider giving a generous gift to our matching gift campaign. Stand together today with so many marriage supporters like you that have already given, and with the generous donor that has pledged to match your gift dollar-for-dollar and double its impact.

We know that, united, we can make a difference. Together, we can win victories—not just this November, but on the broader political, legal, and social landscape. Our voice and our values still have power in this great nation, and our Constitution—despite the beating its taken from activist judges and a radically corrupt federal government—still protects the rights we have to stand up and to speak out for marriage as God designed it.

Thank you for standing with us—this Sunday in Houston, on November 4th, and throughout the year!

Faithfully,

Brian S Brown

Only Five Short Days...

National Organization for Marriage

Dear Marriage Supporter,

There are only five short days left before the November election.

So many of the races for the US Senate are too close to call—Alaska, Arkansas, Iowa, Louisiana, North Carolina...

So many of these races could be turned by making marriage a key election issue in states that are caught in the crosshairs of the radical movement to redefine marriage!

The winner in these races will likely be the one who best turns out the voters. And NOM is launching our final get-out-the-vote efforts right now... mobilizing the millions of Americans all across the country who believe in and are willing to stand up to defend marriage!

Won’t you please help us turn out the conservative base that values life and marriage by making a generous donation of $35, $50, $100, $500 or even $1,000 or more right away?

Remember, through November 4th, your donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar, DOUBLING the effectiveness of your gift!

What better way to impact key races all across the country?

Many of the candidates in these close races are fighting off the Chicago-model Obama machine, which is pouring in money and mobilizing activists from other parts of the country to ensure their ideology — with redefining marriage at the very top of their liberal agenda — is imposed on ordinary people like you and me.

Marriage Supporter, we must do everything in our power to ensure that doesn’t happen!

A pro-marriage majority in the Senate will allow us to advance critical pro-marriage legislation. It will be a powerful check on the Obama Administration’s stealth campaign to redefine marriage through executive order and "regulation." And it will be an obstacle to Obama appointing extremist, activist federal judges to the bench who are willing to throw out the votes of millions of Americans because they arrogantly believe their personal views trump the outcome of elections in over thirty states where voters have stood for the truth of marriage.

Please click here right away to make a generous donation that will be matched dollar-for-dollar!

National Organization for Marriage SuperPac Launches TV Ad in Arkansas Opposing Mark Pryor

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: October 30, 2014
Contact: Elizabeth Ray or Matille Thebolt (703-683-5004)


"Tom Cotton will fight for marriage while Mark Pryor cannot be trusted. We urge Arkansas voters who believe in marriage as the union of one man and one woman to cast their votes for Tom Cotton." — Brian Brown, NOM president —

nom_logo

Washington, D.C. — The National Organization for Marriage Victory Fund has launched a television commercial in Arkansas revealing that US Senator Mark Pryor's claimed support for traditional marriage cannot be trusted in light of his obvious attempts to avoid answering questions about his current position, and the statements of a lesbian leader that Pryor told her he was not opposed to same-sex marriage. The ad is running statewide.

"For years Senator Mark Pryor has claimed to support traditional marriage, but his commitment to fight for marriage has been seriously undermined by his refusal to answer questions about his current position in light of a court decision finding the Arkansas marriage amendment unconstitutional," said Brian Brown, NOM's president. "Of even greater concern are comments by a prominent lesbian leader who says Pryor has told her he does not oppose gay marriage, but just can't talk about the issue right now. This powerful new ad exposes Pryor for this duplicity."

When confronted by a reporter asking him about the decision of the Arkansas Supreme court to overturn their amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman, an obviously anxious Pryor said he had to leave, and then told the reporter that since the matter is in the courts, "we'll see what happens." Meanwhile, prominent gay activist Bailey Bibb, head of the state's Stonewall Democrats, told an undercover reporter that Pryor explained to her, "It's not something we can talk about. I'm not against it."

"Marriage is a critical issue for Arkansans and could prove to be the decisive issue in this race," Brown said. "Tom Cotton will fight for marriage while Mark Pryor cannot be trusted. We urge Arkansas voters who believe in marriage as the union of one man and one woman to cast their votes for Tom Cotton."

[Ed.: The ad can be viewed here online.]

"To Change the Face and Voice of America's Politics"

National Organization for Marriage

Dear Marriage Supporter,

There is less than a week left until the mid-term elections, and the race between Richard Tisei and Seth Moulton in the Massachusetts 6th is a close one, by all accounts a ‘race to watch.' I write today to tell you that it essential that you NOT vote for Republican Richard Tisei, and in fact consider supporting the Democrat, Seth Moulton.

Both Moulton and Tisei are anti-life.

Both are in favor of radically redefining marriage.

One is a Democrat, and one is a Republican.

So why is NOM urging Massachusetts voters to oppose the Republican Tisei and to vote instead for his Democratic opponent? Because the difference matters in ways we cannot count.

Consider one of Tisei's endorsements as a case-in-point: he has gained the support of the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund. This organization says that it "works to elect LGBT leaders to public office for one simple reason. They change America's politics."

But let's be clear: it is the politics of the Republican Party that the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund wishes to change with Tisei's election—and that's what makes his defeat so critical.

On the organization's blog, they state quite openly what earns Tisei their endorsement:

Tisei has shown that he is willing to stand up for equality within his party's caucus, and if elected to the U.S. Congress, will give the LGBT community a much-needed voice in the GOP.

Those words—"within his party's caucus"—are the critical words. It is within the GOP's own strategy meetings and consultations where Tisei is sought to be a "voice" for the political goals of the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund.

And what kind of goals would he push? What kind of values will he give voice? Again, consider the track record that the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund highlights for Tisei, and decide for yourself:

He has worked with MassEquality and pro-marriage legislators to help whip votes in support of marriage equality, and co-sponsored a gender identity non-discrimination bill.

This, indeed, would be "to change the face and voice" of the GOP's politics! The Republican party states clearly in its platform that marriage is the union of one man and one woman; Tisei, according to the hopes of his supporters, would work to undermine and change this platform conviction from within the party itself.

On the other hand, Tisei's opponent, Seth Moulton, is no better than Tisei on the issues. But as a Democrat in a House controlled by Republicans, Moulton wouldn't be able to impact anything. Furthermore, we could defeat him in two years. Tisei, however, as a Republican within a Republican-controlled House of Representatives, would be in a position to do great damage to the integrity of the party's platform and the pro-life and pro-family policies for which the party stands!

Please share this information today with everyone you know in Massachusetts and urge them to oppose Tisei's election, even if that means voting for his Democratic challenger.

Share This   Facebook This   Tweet This   Email This   Share on LinkedIn

A vote for Moulton would have little impact on the critical issues of marriage and life, either for the state of Massachusetts or for the nation. But a vote for Tisei would, in a very real way, "change the face and voice of America's politics"—precisely by silencing our voice, yours and mine, where the message of marriage and life needs most to be heard!

Game Changer

National Organization for Marriage

Dear Marriage Supporter,

For too long, the Republican establishment has given lip service to protecting marriage but has not been willing to lead. A consultant class that has already helped spend billions of dollars on a failing 'economics'-only campaign strategy is trying to foist this same failed strategy on the party yet again.

Will you let them?

NOM is proud today to announce the launch of a new SuperPAC, the NOM Victory Fund, to put real money into winning key Senate races this election cycle.

We know that marriage is a winning issue with voters. And we're willing to do what the establishment won't do: create and distribute hard-hitting ads that take down liberals like North Carolina Senator Kay Hagan for trashing her own voters by supporting judicial tyranny and the redefinition of marriage.

This new ad supporting Thom Tillis is a game changer in this race. We know that North Carolina voters overwhelmingly approve marriage as the union of a man and a woman. Just hours ago, the venerable North Carolina polling group Civitas released results from a survey showing that support for traditional marriage has ACTUALLY INCREASED since 2012 when 62 percent of voters chose to amend the constitution to protect marriage as the union of a man and a woman. North Carolina voters are irate that judges are attempting to impose their redefinition of marriage on the State.

And Thom Tillis is standing strong, fighting with all of his strength to defend the voters—even leading the legislature to intervene to defend North Carolina's laws.

But here's the deal. We're almost the only ones trying to highlight the winning issue of marriage in this race... and we're totally outspent. We have just one week to increase our ad buy and prove the establishment wrong.

Please click here to make a generous contribution to the NOM Victory Fund today and help us make the game-changing play in this race and in other key races around the nation.

With your help, we'll show the Republican establishment—and the nation—that marriage is still an election issue, and that those who support marriage can win elections by doing so!

Faithfully,

National Organization for Marriage Launches New Super PAC to Defeat Kay Hagan and Mark Pryor, Oppose Republicans who Betray Marriage

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: October 28, 2014
Contact: Elizabeth Ray or Matille Thebolt (703-683-5004)


"Supporting marriage as the union of one man and one woman is a winning issue and we believe it can play a pivotal role in defeating Kay Hagan and Mark Pryor." — Brian Brown, NOM president —

nom_logo

Washington, D.C. — The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) today announced the formation of a new Super PAC to campaign against incumbent US Senators Kay Hagan (D-NC) and Mark Pryor (D-AR), and to oppose Republican candidates who abandon support for marriage.

"The National Organization for Marriage Victory Fund will spend $200,000 this week in just the North Carolina and Arkansas Senate contests," said Brian Brown, President of NOM. "Today we're announcing the launch of a powerful new television ad that puts marriage front and center in the race, contrasting the leadership of Thom Tillis in getting the North Carolina marriage amendment on the ballot with Kay Hagan's opposition to it. Moreover, Hagan was the person who hand-picked the federal judge who invalidated the North Carolina marriage amendment without so much as giving voters a day in court."

The television ad, "Kay Hagan's Judge," runs statewide as of October 28th. It was produced in concert with the NC Values Coalition with whom NOM worked to pass the marriage amendment.

The North Carolina Marriage Amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman was enacted in 2012 with 61% of the vote. When the US Supreme Court refused to hear the case invalidating the Virginia marriage amendment, federal District Court Judge Max Cogburn ruled the North Carolina amendment unconstitutional. The people of North Carolina were never permitted to defend the amendment.

NOM also announced that, along with the NC Values Coalition, they had sent a mailer to well over 100,000 supporters of marriage in the state pointing out the differences between Tillis and Hagan on marriage as well as abortion. Thom Tillis is reliably pro-life but Kay Hagan is a strong supporter of the extreme agenda of the abortion lobby.

"For too long, we've watched as GOP consultants and the elite have told candidates to avoid mention of social issues, leaving them to be defined by their opponents and failing to excite the base that is responsible for winning elections," Brown said. "So the NOM Victory Fund will work independently of candidates and campaign on the marriage issue in key races like in North Carolina and Arkansas. Supporting marriage as the union of one man and one woman is a winning issue and we believe it can play a pivotal role in defeating Kay Hagan and Mark Pryor."

ICYMI: Making Marriage Meaningless (VIDEO)

Here's a terrific new video with a clear, concise message about the meaning of marriage and why it is best for both children and society to define marriage as the union of one man and one woman.
