What an amazing couple of weeks…

 

Dear Friend—The last couple of weeks have been an absolute whirlwind as we've racked up accomplishment after accomplishment at the US Supreme Court. Let's review:

  • Two weeks ago we won an incredible victory with the Masterpiece Cakeshop decision from the Supreme Court, which found that Christian baker Jack Phillips was not guilty of discrimination and if anything had been discriminated against by the state of Colorado which had cavalierly dismissed his religious objections to designing a custom 'wedding' cake for a same-sex couple. The Colorado ruling against him was overturned, a great win for supporters of marriage. NOM worked hard on this case to support Jack's rights, and the rights of all people who believe in true marriage.
  • A week ago, the US Supreme Court vacated the devastating ruling of the Washington State Supreme Court punishing Barronelle Stutzman, a Christian florist and a grandmother, because she declined to create floral arrangements for a same-sex 'wedding' that violates her religious beliefs about marriage. The US Supreme Court directed the state of Washington to reconsider the case in light of its ruling for Jack Phillips. Again, NOM has been a staunch ally of Barronelle Stutzman throughout her ordeal.
  • Though not related to marriage, the Supreme Court also overturned an insane California law that required pro-life pregnancy centers to post information promoting abortion services available from the state.
  • Then yesterday, Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement from the Court at the end of July. Kennedy regularly supported pro-abortion decisions, and was the leading justice on the Court pushing the gay agenda, including authoring the illegitimate ruling imposing gay 'marriage' on the nation.

I can't but feel that there is a move of the Holy Spirit at work here. Not only did we achieve these great victories even with Anthony Kennedy on the Court, we have a realistic likelihood that President Trump will nominate a staunch conservative, someone like Justice Neil Gorsuch who is pro-life and pro-marriage, and who believes the constitution means what it says and cannot be used as a tool to advance a political agenda. Once that happens, here is what the future could look like in just a few years:

  • There would be a realistic path to restoring traditional marriage to our nation's laws as we would have a majority of justices who agree that the Obergefell ruling was illegitimate and without legal basis.
  • Similarly, there would be a realistic path to overturning Roe v. Wade and its progeny, ending the scourge of abortion on demand in every state in the union.

The importance of this upcoming fight to receive the nomination of a true conservative like Gorsuch, and then the confirmation fight simply cannot be overstated. I am asking you to take two simple, but important and concrete steps to help at this critical moment in history:

  1. Please post this image  on all your social media accounts, and share it with your friends and contacts. NOM's & Campaign is a great way to protest the illegitimate imposition of gay 'marriage,' which happened three years ago this week, while reinforcing the core element of marriage – it is the union of one man and one woman. You can download the & Campaign image here.
  2. Please make an immediate donation to NOM so that we can marshal the resources we need to fight for a new justice, someone with the intellect and judicial philosophy to uphold the constitution and overturn Obergefelland Roe.

We are entering one of the most important periods of time in each of our lives. This is one of those rare occurrences which rise far above the normal clatter of political causes to assume a position of monumental importance in history. In this moment, we have the power to change the direction of our entire nation. We have the ability to powerfully push back against cultural insanity that is destroying the American values gifted us by the Judeo-Christian tradition.

I can't think of a more important time in my life to pour everything into winning this upcoming fight over control of the Supreme Court. It's certainly the most important battle in NOM's history, and we are going to do everything we possibly can to be victorious in seeing a conservative, constitutionalist jurist replace Justice Kennedy on the Court.

Please help us by downloading this image, and by making an urgently-needed financial contribution to support our work during this critical time. Thank you!

Faithfully,
