Dear Marriage Supporter,
The recent comments and actions of Justice Ginsburg serve to illustrate just how important the forthcoming third annual March for Marriage is to the preservation of marriage in the law.
A justice who performs same-sex 'weddings' and comments openly about how America is supposedly ready to accept same-sex 'marriage' when a case on the very subject is pending before the court is anything but impartial.
Yesterday I asked you to sign our petition to have Justice Ginsburg recuse herself from hearing this case. Thousands of people have done so, and it's clear that she is getting the message because yesterday she declined to comment further on the issue, apparently chastened by what many call her "astounding impropriety."
Thank you if you have already signed that petition. But today it's important that we turn our attention to the swing votes on the court and focus on what we can do to reach them so they realize that the American people will not sit still and watch marriage be redefined in the law.
We must show Ginsburg to be wrong about voters "accepting" such a ruling and the best way to do that is to ensure the success of the March for Marriage.
That is why I am asking you to please consider making a generous and fully tax-deductible donation in support of the 2015 March for Marriage.
Remember, right now we have a matching gift challenge – which means every dollar you donate today will be matched, dollar-for-dollar by a generous supporter who realizes how critical this upcoming March for Marriage is!
Already, groups like the severely misnamed Human Rights Campaign pushing the same-sex 'marriage' agenda are celebrating Justice Ginsburg's remarks and even using them in their lobbying efforts!
Let me remind you of the words of Justice Scalia in his dissenting opinion in the Windsor case two years ago when he said:
It takes real cheek for today's majority to assure us, as it is going out the door, that a constitutional requirement to give formal recognition to same-sex marriage is not at issue here—when what has preceded that assurance is a lecture on how superior the majority's moral judgment in favor of same-sex marriage is to the Congress's hateful moral judgment against it. I promise you this: The only thing that will "confine" the Court's holding is its sense of what it can get away with. [emphasis added]
Marriage Supporter, let's not allow the Supreme Court, our elected officials, the media or the other elites in control of society's levers of power to feel that they can get away with redefining society's most sacred and important institution!
Please stand with us as we march for marriage! We are at the moment in history where this precious institution that God created at the beginning of time is at risk of being held to be "discriminatory." If such a ruling happens, it will take years before people wake up and realize the damage to families and society as a result.
This is our best opportunity to fight for marriage, before the court rules.
Please assist us with a generous financial gift that will allow us to rent buses, provide security, arrange logistics like staging, sound equipment, communications and signage; and (most importantly) get the word out so that thousands of marriage supporters can mobilize and take a stand in defense of marriage in front of the Supreme Court of the United States as they consider this critically important case before them!
Remember, every dollar you donate will be matched, doubling the impact of your gift in the fight to defend marriage!

PS: We have less than three months to organize, promote and execute the 2015 March for Marriage. The Supreme Court taking up a case focused on the constitutionality of laws defending marriage will be an historic moment for our great nation — for better or for worse. I don't buy the pessimistic notion that there is nothing we can do. That's why I will be marching for marriage before the Supreme Court this April 25th!
Won't you please help us out right away with a generous, fully tax-deductible gift in support of our efforts to launch this critically important initiative? Remember, anything you donate will be matched dollar-for-dollar, doubling the impact of your gift in defense of marriage!
