Media reports over the weekend point to the critical month ahead in the U.S. Supreme Court where several potentially transformative cases impacting religious liberty are pending a decision. One of those critical cases, Masterpiece Cakeshop v Colorado Civil Rights Commission, deals directly with marriage and could provide the protection from persecution we've been fighting to achieve for many years.

NOM has been an active defender of Jack Phillips, a Christian baker who respectfully declined to devote his artistic talents to designing and producing a custom cake for a same-sex 'wedding.' His objection to this was rooted in his Christian faith. The bible teaches us that marriage, created at the beginning of time by God, is the union of one man and one woman. Jack Phillips has devoted his business to honoring God, and he could not be involved in something like a gay 'wedding' that dishonors biblical teaching.

Help Us Fight For The Rights Of Marriage Supporters

Simply for standing true to his Christian beliefs, Jack was targeted and punished, ordered by the state of Colorado to participate in gay 'weddings' despite what the bible teaches about marriage. He and his staff were ordered to undergo "sensitivity training" and file compliance reports with the state of Colorado. Failure to comply risked fines and other punishments.

Let's be clear: the LGBT extremists who target people like Jack are not out to get someone to bake a gay 'wedding cake.' After all, there are countless bakers who would have been perfectly fine baking a cake for the homosexual couple. Instead, they target people of faith to send a message that acceptance of same-sex 'marriage' is mandatory and resistance, even when based on the bible, is futile.

NOM has been supporting Jack since the beginning, helping to bring public attention to his case, and filing an import legal brief with the US Supreme Court on his behalf. We've done so because it's the right thing to do, but also because there is so much more at stake than whether a Christian baker must bake a gay 'wedding' cake. This case impacts the fundamental religious liberty rights of every American to be free to live out their religious beliefs at work and in their daily lives.

The LGBT community enjoys a big financial advantage in this titanic struggle over the rights of Christians and other people of faith. Backed by billionaires and wealthy corporations eager to curry favor with gay activists, they amass resources in an unprecedented scale. Yet despite being massively outspent, NOM is able to rack up critical victories because we have truth on our side and a strong grassroots army of supporters standing alongside us.

We are in the midst of a critical mid-year membership drive that will set the stage for what we can accomplish during the balance of this year. Thanks to a faithful supporter, every membership gift we receive will be matched dollar for dollar. This is a great blessing, which is why I am asking you to make a sacrifice by making an immediate membership contribution of $35 or more knowing that whatever you give will be matched dollar for dollar. Will you help?

>>>      I will make a membership gift of $100

We're got a lot on our plate no matter what the Supreme Court decides in Jack Phillips' case. If we win, which we are hopeful will be the case, there will be a strong pushback from gay activists and their allies in the media, entertainment and corporate boardrooms that the decision "licenses discrimination." We'll have a fierce fight to defend the decision. And if the Court goes the wrong way, we will have to immediately spring into action in Congress and the states to seek legislative relief, including enactment of the First Amendment Defense Act. We'll also be pressuring the Trump administration to issue additional executive orders to protect people of faith.

There's so much at stake. We’re fighting with everything we have, but our resources are modest, especially in comparison to our opponents. That is why this mid-year membership matching gift opportunity is so critical.

Please help us today by making a membership contribution of $35 or more, knowing that your gift will instantly double in size. If you donate $35, we will receive $70 thanks to this generous matching gift offer.

We are nearly at the half way point of this critical mid-year membership drive, but we're behind the pace we need to set. Please act today with your most generous membership gift so that we get the full benefit of the matching grant that has been made available to us.

Some NOM members are on a fixed income or live with a tight budget and can only give $10 or $15. Others are blessed with financial resources and can contribute at a higher level -- $100, $500 or even $1,500 or more. Whatever your circumstances are, whether you can give $15 or $1,500, we welcome your support because it will instantly double and give us a much needed boost.

Thank you for your help at this important time. Please know that any gift you can make today will make a huge difference.
