Mormon NOM: Stuff the RNC ballot box and btw…Give Us Some Money

December 19, 2010

Mormon/Catholic sponsored NOM


NOM is trying to stuff the ballot box for the upcoming Republican National Convention.  They’re afraid that Republicans may move from the Religious Right back to center (a novel idea) and compromise with gay marriage advocates and do what’s fair and right for the citizens of the United States.  NOM doesn’t want this to happen.  They want to keep LGBT as second class citizens and want your money and your votes to do it.

Miss Maggie Gallegar wants to block gay marriage because she illegitimately states “it will be the end of marriage as we know it” and “is no longer related to bringing together mothers and fathers to raise the next generation”.  The fact is, changing the marriage laws does not impede bringing together mothers and fathers or anyone who wants to rear and raise children.  Once again, NOM tries to change the discussion.  They want you to believe that somehow allowing gay marriage will ruin the existing marriages.  The fact is, it has no bearing on how existing marriages are sanctioned and performed it only ADDS to those by allowing two loving people to marry, regardless of others religious doctrine.

 NOM states with respect to the RNC:

There is tremendous pressure from inside-the-Beltway, establishment Republicans to water down the party’s commitment to marriage, compromising with gay marriage advocates or trying to sweep the issue under the rug in hopes that it will go away. But it isn’t going anywhere – not with a Supreme Court ruling likely looming in the next two years – and we need a RNC Chairman who is willing to make the case for marriage, religious liberty and the proper role of the judiciary, investing resources to advance the cause of marriage both nationally and at the state and local level all across the country.

Thus far, only a few hundred people have voted for any question in the RNC Debate poll. With your help, we can send yet one more strong message to the RNC, reminding them that marriage is a core issue for Republican voters, and urging them to elect a chairman who will be steadfast and unwavering in his or her support for marriage.

Here’s how NOM is trying to STUFF the ballot box:

1. Register. Go to RNCDebate.org and click the REGISTER button. You’ll need to provide an email address and create a password in order to vote.

2. Check your email. An email confirming your registration will be sent to the email address you provide. Click on the link in the email to confirm your account.

3. Vote for marriage! The primary marriage question is item #24 (scroll down to the question and click on the UP arrow to give it a “thumbs up” vote). The question reads:

Question #24
“Surveys uniformly show that over 80% of Republicans support the traditional definition of marriage. GOP candidates who support gay marriage like Dede Scozzafava, Bill Binnie and Tom Campbell have been trounced in GOP primaries. In the 31 states where marriage has appeared on the ballot, including in deep blue states like California and Maine, the voters in every state have rejected gay marriage and voted in favor of traditional marriage. Yet most candidates have been encouraged by the RNC to avoid speaking up on the marriage issue. Will you continue this policy or will you encourage candidates to make their position on marriage clear to voters?”

And while you’re there, you may also want to vote for Question #23:

“As chairman, what specifically would you do differently than current and past administrations when it comes to the issues of Life and Marriage? Will you highlight these two critical issues in political advertising programs?”


And the real reason they want your help… OPEN YOUR WALLET!

Finally, as we head toward Christmas next week, please consider a gift to protect marriage. Your gift right now is especially important, as every dollar raised between now and the end of the year will be matched, doubling its impact. We have just a few weeks to prepare for next year’s legislative sessions, and need your help to ensure that we have the resources to immediately counter every threat that arises
