Petition – America V Gaystapo!

No need for comment on my part. This petition is for every American who cares for freedom.
Defeating the grossly misnamed Equality Act (HR 5/S. 788) is our top legislative priority. The legislation is really the InEquality Act, since it gives special legal rights to the LGBT community while punishing people of faith who support marriage, religious liberty and the reality that gender is based on biology.

The fight to kill this terrible legislation is in the US Senate, and we need your help to prevail.

We have launched a critical nationwide petition asking Americans to add their name to the growing chorus of people to oppose this legislation. In just a short time, over 5,000 people have already signed on, but we need to significantly increase this number.  There are two things I’m asking you to do:

  1. If you haven’t already, please add your own name to the petition, letting key Senators and their top staff know that you join with many others to oppose this unfair, one-sided attack on marriage, gender and religious liberty.
  2. Please forward the petition to five other people and ask them to join you in adding their own name to the petition. You can use the sharing buttons below to send the petition on social media, or click here to forward via email.

How bad is this legislation?

In a word, it is terrible. It makes demonstrating support for traditional marriage illegal discrimination against gays and lesbians. It imposes a radical gender ideology on the nation whereby gender is no longer based on biology but on an individual’s feelings of “identity.” It risks the privacy and safety of girls and women by allowing biological men into intimate areas reserved for females – such as showers, bathrooms and changing areas. It allows men to compete against women in athletics simply by declaring that they identify as a female. And worst of all, the bill strips Americans of their religious liberty rights to refuse participation in LGBT ceremonies and celebrations that violate their religious beliefs.

By signing our petition, you will put key US Senators on notice that you expect them to defeat the bill. These key US Senators and their staffs will receive an email in your name informing them of your views.

It’s critical that Senators hear from the grassroots that the InEquality Act must be defeated. Already, there are 46 co-sponsors of the legislation in the Senate including Republican Susan Collins. Absent a strong push, other Republicans may also come on board to curry favor with LGBT donors and activists.

There has never been a more pernicious, damaging legislative attack on us and our values. That’s why, in addition to signing the petition and asking five other people to do the same, I am also asking if you would consider making an emergency financial contribution to NOM to help us defeat the InEquality Act. Thanks to some generous supporters, your donation to help defeat this bill will be matched dollar for dollar, instantly doubling the impact of your gift!

Will you step forward with an emergency financial contribution knowing that your support will immediately double?

The funds we receive from this appeal will help us mount an all-out effort to defeat this legislation including running nationwide digital ads, expanding the website we created to oppose the bill, educating and engaging Americans on social media about this terrible legislation, and significantly expanding the number of people who sign our petition.

But whether you are in a position to donate to the effort or not, it’s critical that every NOM supporter act today to sign the petition themselves, and to ask five other people to do the same.  That is the most important and effective way of spreading the word to more people.

This is going to be the most difficult, heated legislative fight we’ve ever waged. If we all work together, I am confident that this legislation can killed. It’s up to us, though.

Please sign our petition today, and ask five other people to do the same thing. And if you are in a position to help financially, your donation of any amount will be matched dollar for dollar.
