Opponents' Lies Could Lead to Marriage Protection Upset in NC

ACTION Completed

by William B. May

SAN FRANCISCO, April 27, 2012 -- Opponents to traditional marriage in North Carolina, in a desperate effort to defeat a critical marriage protection amendment, are releasing deceptive ads aimed at confusing voters—and, distressingly, they seem to be working. The Public Policy Polling firm’s recent survey reports, “There is some reason to think a huge upset in two weeks (May 8) is within the realm of possibility."

Can you believe, opponents are telling the voters that if the marriage amendment passes, children will lose healthcare, women will have no protection against violence in the home, and other absurd charges? Amendment One simply defines marriage between a man and a woman as the only union to be recognized under the state constitution.

Stop Them from Confusing Voters

They are trying to confuse voters, and, when voters get confused, they tend to vote for the status quo—a “No” vote in this case. It is critical for the nation that Amendment One pass in North Carolina. Don’t let voters vote against marriage by mistake. It is critical that they get phone calls from marriage supporters.

When we faced Prop 8 in California, people from other states pitched in and helped contact our voters. Californians did the same to help marriage supporters in Maine a year later.

Certainly, you could take 15-20 minutes per day to make calls over the next 10 days. Prayerfully consider signing up today. You will find it very easy to do. The campaign will provide all volunteers with phone numbers, scripts, and simple instructions.

This is a spiritual battle and prayer is essential. Please pray for the success of all of the marriage campaigns taking place this year, through the intercession of Blessed John Paul and Our Lady of Guadalupe.
