Dear Friends of Marriage,

Bishop Harry Jackson and Stand for Marriage DC.com called a rally for marriage in the nation's capital this past Sunday.  DC City Council members are threatening to enact a gay marriage bill, even though the majority of DC voters don't support it, claiming that "civil rights" requires it.  Read More »

Dear Friends of Marriage,

Let me start by saying, "Thank you."  I don't say this often enough--but from the bottom of my heart, thank you.

A great big thank-you especially to the thousands of you in New Jersey who have responded to NOM's Call to Marriage.  Gay-marriage advocates keep saying nobody really cares about this issue but them.  But in New Jersey, a blue state, we are generating a tidal wave of calls--more than 1000 per senate district, from people who, like you, are fed up with politicians who ignore our voices and our values!

Thank you! Read More »

Dear Friends of Marriage,

Everyone keeps asking me about Maine.

Here's the great news: StandforMarriageMaine.com (the Yes on One folks) have a new campaign ad so effective that National Public Radio doesn't want you to see it!

It's an ad featuring an NPR news interview from 2004 with a pro-gay marriage Massachusetts public school teacher. In the interview, the teacher describes in great (and warning: occasionally graphic) detail how her teaching changed once gay marriage became the law. "Give me a break" she says, "it's legal now."

Dear Friends of Marriage,

Something fascinating just happened in Iowa: The president of the Iowa-Nebraska NAACP just refused to endorse Iowa's Democratic Gov. Chet Culver, instead throwing his support to one of the six GOP candidates for governor.

Friends,

Let me be direct: Unless we act now, marriage will be redefined in Maine. Never before have voters had the chance to directly overturn the legislative enactment of same-sex marriage in any state in the country. If we lose marriage in Maine, we risk losing marriage everywhere. Read More »

Dear Friends of Marriage,

You may have heard: A gay marriage bill was introduced this week in the DC City Council.

Oh, and guess what? Robert Kabel, the chairman of the DC Republican Committee, immediately issued a statement endorsing gay marriage. Like I told the press, this is a PR fantasy, part of an ongoing attempt to conjure up a "bipartisan" consensus on gay marriage when frankly there isn't even a partisan consensus on gay marriage.

Dear Friends of Marriage,

Let's talk Corzine for a minute.

Gov. Corzine has made it clear that gay marriage is one of his top priorities--but only to his "base." Privately, he is pushing for a vote on gay marriage in the lame duck session. The reason he's pushing for gay marriage in the lame-duck is that he wants the vote as far away from an election as possible.

Dear Friends of Marriage,

I don't often do this. But let me brag about Maggie. No--let me quote Austin Ruse bragging about Maggie.

Some of you may know Austin Ruse, who is himself a great Christian hero, a tireless and effective defender of the culture of life at the United Nations (talk about a flinty soil!) and other international organizations. Austin heads up the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute (C-FAM), a research institute focusing exclusively on international social policy. Read More »
