Brian Brown Has An October Surprise
With marriage under attack in federal courts all across the country, this November's elections have become all the more important. Just ask Donald and Evelyn Knapp of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. Now that a federal court has struck down the state's marriage amendment, city officials have told them that, as ordained ministers running the Hitching Post Wedding Chapel, they are required to perform same-sex weddings or face months in jail and/or thousands of dollars in fines! This is absolutely unconscionable! Now more than ever, men and women who believe in marriage MUST stand up and defend it... or the consequences for ordinary people of faith who believe in marriage will be dire.The consequences will be DIRE!
We MUST elect marriage champions to office. We MUST hold the GOP accountable and send a message that candidates who don't represent our most basic and fundamental values are NOT acceptable. We MUST advance critical legislation defending marriage and religious liberty through Congress. And NOM has a plan to do just that! These efforts have just taken on such importance that I have revised our budget—increasing our expenditures on media, voter-education, viral internet advertising, phone and mailing campaigns, get-out-the-vote efforts and much more between now and Election Day!
But I need your help to raise the funds needed to execute these urgent and critically important plans. Won't you please make a generous donation of $35, $50, $100, $500 or even $1,000 or more today, knowing that your donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar? These matching grants are extraordinary opportunities to maximize your gift in defense of marriage. I know you've already been generous to our cause, and I can't say "thank you" enough. But I also have to reiterate once more, that I will devote all of NOM's resources and energy to stand for the truth about marriage, and to advocate the importance of preserving it. Won't you stand with me by making a generous donation today?
