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 freely in our support for natural marriage—we are in this fight together.
Now, as we face a most dangerous time for marriage, a generous donor has stepped up to the plate and pledged to match any gifts we may get in the weeks before the decision.
It is absolutely urgent that you stand with us now as we stand boldly for the truth of marriage. We do not have billionaire donors, but rely on your sacrificial help to fund our efforts.
We have spent everything in our coffers to make the March for Marriage the great success it was.
As we move forward, it is essential that we have the resources to continue this fight to the Supreme Court and beyond.
We have critical work to do that depends entirely on your support. Here are just a few examples of what we need to accomplish in the next few weeks:
- Issuing a Presidential Pledge to the Republican candidates, to ensure they take a strong and public stance on marriage, letting you — the voter — know their commitment to defending marriage and our First Freedoms. In addition, the pledge will help raise the profile of marriage and religious liberty while the Court is deliberating the case that could determine the constitutionality of traditional marriage laws, communicating the American people's commitment to defending marriage and religious liberty regardless of what the Supreme Court says;
- Advance legislation at both the Federal and state level to protect the right of individuals, small businesses and organizations to act in concert with their beliefs about marriage, thus taking pro-active steps to defend our First Freedoms regardless of what the Supreme Court says;
- Organize a diverse and massive response to the Supreme Court — whichever way they rule in June. We will need to build up our grassroots education and activism programs to ensure that everyone who believes in marriage is both informed and equipped to stand up and make their voice heard — regardless of what the Supreme Court says.
Make no mistake — we are fighting for the foundation of our very civilization and the very freedoms upon which our great nation was founded. The government — in bed with lobbyists backed by millionaires and billionaires seeking to redefine marriage — is trying to take away not only what is sacred and true about marriage... but our very right to defend it!
But NOM will defend marriage — always... because marriage will always need and deserve the very best defense possible.
Won't you join us in defending marriage today with a generous gift? It doesn't matter whether you can give $20, $200 or $2,000. All that matters is recommitting to the fight to defend marriage and religious liberty at this critical time.
Thank you in advance. And please pray for the Supreme Court as they deliberate on this critical issue. May God bless you for all you do in defense of marriage.
PS: Remember, every dollar you donate will be matched, dollar-for-dollar by another generous donor! He is challenging us to renew as many members as possible leading up to the Supreme Court's fateful decision... because no matter what they rule, the fight to defend marriage and religious liberty will go on! Knowing that your donation will be matched, won't you please consider making a generous donation today?
