Please sign our petition today to support Judge Neil Gorsuch's confirmation to the US Supreme Court. Once you sign the petition, the leaders of the Senate will be put on notice that you stand with NOM in supporting a proven conservative and constitutionalist judge, Neil Gorsuch.
I don't have to remind you of how important the US Supreme Court is to the cause of marriage, life, religious liberty, the truth of gender and all the other issues we care deeply about. The Court redefined marriage by a single vote in 2015 in an anti-constitutional, illegitimate ruling that had no basis in the US constitution or our nation's laws.
The clearest path to reversing that illegitimate decision is, thus, changing the makeup of the Supreme Court. The confirmation of Judge Gorsuch is the first step on that path. Then we need to make sure that the next vacancy on the Court is filled by an originalist judge in the mold of Justice Scalia, as Judge Gorsuch's background and track record show him to be.
We are in a big fight to secure the confirmation of Judge Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. The arcane rules of the Senate allow a single leftist member to filibuster the nomination, preventing it from being voted upon unless at least 60 Senators vote to end the filibuster. So we need to either get 60 Senators to support Judge Gorsuch, or we need to create enough political pressure on the Republican leadership to change the rules so that Mr. Gorsuch gets a straight up or down vote.
There are two things we are counting on every NOM supporter to do to help in this critical battle:
NOM has developed a strong plan of action to support the confirmation efforts for Judge Gorsuch. Our petition drive is a critical foundational element in the effort. But we are also planning on a series of educational and grassroots activities, especially via social media, with the potential of reaching millions of Americans. We urgently need to raise $15,500 to execute our plan. Can I count on your help?
This is a critical time for NOM and all people of faith who support marriage as the union of one man and one woman, just as God created it. If we can change the makeup of the Supreme Court, we can reverse the terribly damaging precedent set by the redefinition of marriage. Let's do everything in our power to get the job done!
PS — Please sign our petition immediately adding your name in support of the confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the US Supreme Court, and then make an urgently-needed financial contribution of whatever you can afford to help NOM raise the $15,500 we need to execute our plans to educate and mobilize people all over America to support Judge Gorsuch. Thank you!
