It’s no wonder Brian Brown is “nervous.” In an email and NOM blog post today, Brown seems like he’s in a panic. Then asks for money. Then a mention of gays committing “brutal” attacks against marriage (hey, we want it too. I don’t think any of us want to destroy it). Then asks for more money. Then words like “bullies,” “shove gay marriage,” – well, you get the picture:
I’m starting to get nervous.
You have always been a marriage defender in our effort to stop our opponents from redefining marriage.
And your standing up to defend marriage has never been more critical than it will be in 2012!
The most important Presidential election of our lifetime…the chance to elect a pro-marriage Senate…federal protections for marriage under assault in the courts…battles raging in over a dozen states…
Marriage Supporter, I have to tell you, we need your help immediately to fight all these battles.
I hope you can make one immediate contribution today—NOM’s fight is more important today than it EVER has been, and we absolutely MUST have your support.
Our opponents are hungrier and stronger than they have ever been in their brutal attacks on traditional marriage and we cannot let them redefine us. We will stand up and fight to maintain our traditional beliefs and protect the most sacred institution of them all—one-man one-woman marriage.
So please help, because you and I are capable of winning ANY fight for marriage as long as we are united. We have done it before, and we WILL do it again.
Just 9 months ago, the anti-marriage crusaders bullied their way through the New York legislature to shove gay marriage down the throats of New Yorkers.
And so far this year, the Governors of Washington state and Maryland (suffering, I suspect, from “Cuomo envy”—a nasty condition), have strong-armed their state legislatures into passing bills legalizing same-sex marriage.
Of course, NOM immediately sprang into action in both states—helping organize the on-the-ground, grassroots coalition and network of churches and other organizations to collect the signatures to get marriage on the ballot in November. The fight is far from over!
But, marriage supporter, there’s no telling what they will try to do next! We cannot allow this to happen across our great country. With your help, we will STOP the bullies in their tracks, right the wrongs they’ve already imposed and make sure they leave long-standing traditional marriage alone.
We don’t have any choice. We are one of the few organizations in America willing to stand up to the “gay marriage” bullies and their media allies.
