Dear Marriage Supporter,
When I sit down for dinner this Thanksgiving, I will have a long list of blessings on my mind.
I'm grateful to the Lord for so many things...my family, my country and my health are always at the top of the list.
But you know something?
This year, something else immediately comes to mind. I am incredibly appreciative of and thankful for your support.
The National Organization for Marriage is only as strong as our friends, and you have been such a strong and loyal friend and supporter...it really sustains and energizes me, along with everyone who works here in defense of marriage.
I cannot begin to describe how much you have done to protect marriage from being destroyed in America.
If not for you, the anti-marriage radicals — with their rich Hollywood friends and their campaigns of violence and intimidation — would have won a long time ago.
Thanks to you, not only are we standing up to them, we are winning.
And I hope you will enable us to win one more critical victory by making an urgent tax-deductible gift to the NOM Education Fund today.
Anything you can donate right now will help fund our high-stakes legal battle to uphold Proposition 8 in California. We've just won a key victory at the California Supreme Court, allowing the Prop 8 sponsors to defend Proposition 8 in court. This victory is crucial – it prevents Governor Jerry Brown from single-handedly vetoing the will of 7 million California voters – but it also sets us on a path that will be long and very expensive, likely culminating at the U.S. Supreme Court next year.
I recently wrote you a detailed letter explaining why this case is so critical (if the anti-marriage gang wins, it will destroy marriage not just in California, but throughout all 50 states) but so far I haven't heard back from you.
It's possible you mailed in a gift but it just hasn't been processed fully. If that's the case, as I said above, you have my profound gratitude. But I hope you will still make one urgent contribution, because we cannot afford to lose this fight.
We're winning at the ballot box and in legislatures nationwide, and so the activists pushing for same-sex marriage have turned to the court system. If we don't stop them, they will manipulate a small group of hand-picked judges into destroying marriage in America – forever.
And that is why, during this time of Thanksgiving, I am so incredibly grateful for your help.
Have a happy and blessed Thanksgiving!
Brian S. Brown

P.S. Remember, the same-sex marriage crowd has tens of millions of dollars to use, working to destroy marriage in all 50 states. And they have focused much of that money on the legal system, where they can take advantage of sympathetic hand-picked judges (instead of using the democratic process, allowing people to vote on whether or not they want to protect marriage). We are resisting their efforts to impose gay marriage on you, but legal bills mount very quickly. So please help. Your gift is completely tax-deductible and will enable us to defend marriage in the courts.
