More bullying

Dear Marriage Supporter,

Earlier this year, gay marriage advocates petitioned CNN to silence pro-family advocates and censor their "dangerous anti-gay rhetoric" from the airwaves.

Three weeks ago, radical activists in Michigan tried to get a young woman fired–for the second time!—for a letter to the editor she wrote 3 years ago. She's already been wrongfully fired by one employer over the letter, and now they're trying to get her fired from her next job.

And now the Human Rights Campaign, the nation's largest same-sex marriage advocacy group, is pressuring 200 of the nation's top law firms to boycott the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) by refusing to represent the House of Representatives in the legal defense of marriage.

Starting to see a pattern?

Gay marriage groups haven't had major new arguments for a long time. And the American people have heard the equality argument over and over again, but still reject same-sex marriage in powerful numbers.

When you run out of arguments, the only thing left is to silence your opposition. And that's what they're determined to do.

Shame people into silence. Censor those who refuse to back down. And boycott anyone willing even to associate with those of us who stand up for the great good of marriage.

Those are the tactics we're up against. It's not just a fair fight in the battlefield of ideas anymore–we have to fight even for the right to speak up for marriage.

There is one federal law blocking the path to same-sex marriage throughout the United States. That federal law is known as the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). DOMA says that wherever the word "marriage" or "spouse" is used in federal law, it means the union of a husband and wife–one man and one woman. And DOMA also says that no state can be required to recognize same-sex marriages from another state.

In late February, President Obama betrayed DOMA, refusing to defend the very law he had sworn to faithfully execute. Yet another attempt to make sure the courts hear only one side of the argument. But with your help, Congress is taking action to intervene on behalf of marriage, giving marriage the legal defense the President refused to provide.

This case—with implications for laws and state constitutional amendments all across the country–could become our generation's equivalent of Roe vs. Wade, the 1973 abortion case that took human life out of the hands of state legislatures, forcing an abortion regime on the entire nation. If we don't act now, the Supreme Court could soon force a same-sex marriage regime on the entire nation, overruling 30 state marriage amendments and the votes of 30 million Americans in a narrow 5-4 ruling–and it could come as quickly as next year.
