NOM's President, Maggie Gallagher, asks a pretty good question: "Why has President Obama's Justice Department abruptly attempted to sabotage the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in federal court?"

Is there no justice for marriage? Read More »

Dear Friends of Marriage,

Today I have to say: Thank you!
 
Last week I asked you to take action in the debacle developing in New York's 23rd Congressional district--and you responded!
 
More than 11,000 emails and faxes and still counting! Protests have poured into the offices of GOP chief Michael Steele and local New York Republican officials to say: Don't make a terrible mistake: Don't sell out marriage voters! Don't reward Dede Scozzafava, one of the very few GOP politicians who have ever voted for gay marriage, with an uncontested shot at high office. Not without GOP primary voters' consent! Read More »

Dear Friends of Marriage,

Does the Republican Party in New York want to commit political suicide? Is the national party going to help them?

ACTION ALERT!
Go right now and tell GOP chief Michael Steele: No backroom deals promoting pro-gay marriage politicians to Congress!  Not without GOP voters' consent! Read More »

Rhode Island's First Annual Celebrate Marriage and Family Day!

The National Organization for Marriage - Rhode Island (NOM - Rhode Island) is thrilled to announce its first annual "Celebrate Marriage and Family Day" on August 16th from 3 - 8 pm on the beautiful waterfront property of the Aldrich Mansion (www.aldrichmansion.com) in Warwick, Rhode Island. This positive and encouraging event will include live music, children's activities, 2nd Honeymoon and vacation giveaways, a chance to bring a picnic or purchase food on site to enjoy while overlooking Narragansett Bay, and an ice cream social. The highlight of the day will be the opportunity for husbands and wives to renew their wedding vows in this idyllic setting.

All aspects of the afternoon, save for food and beverages purchased at the event, are free of charge, including the ice cream social.

Many of us spent January through July fighting to defend marriage and family from being redefined and weakened in Rhode Island. Now it's time to be positive and celebrate the goodness and importance of marriage between a man and a woman. The marriage vow renewal is a chance for husbands to look into their wives eyes, and vice versa, and say, 'Sweetheart, it's been 5, 10, 15, or even 50 years, and I would marry you again.'

Providing the live music will be Sojourn, (www.sojournmusic.com) a Christian band from Louisville, Kentucky, as well as local talent. Maggie Gallagher, President of the National Organization for Marriage will provide a brief address. Children's activities will include pony rides, face-painting, and other amusements. Feel free to bring a picnic (no grills please) or purchase the catered meal. Meal costs are $10/adult and $8/child. Family rates will be arranged.

NOM - Rhode Island appreciates its many partners in making this event an on-going success. These partners include The Diocese of Providence, Coastline Ambulance, SHINE 1220 Radio, as well as scores of volunteers from local businesses and faith communities.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Gay-marriage advocates are now in court seeking to impose gay marriage on all 50 states, whether we like it or not. In today's Wall Streeet Journal op-ed, "Gay Marriage, Democracy and the Supreme Court," Princeton Prof. Robby George (NOM's chairman of the board) is the intellectual powerhouse who explains just how irrational and destructive making up a constitutional right to same-sex marriage would be.

Read it and rejoice! Read More »
