Just in from hate group leader Brian Brown:
It is impossible to overstate the importance of this moment. If President Trump nominates someone like Neil Gorsuch, which we will strongly urge him to do, and the nominee is confirmed by the Senate, then we will go from a 5-4 split that redefined marriage to a 5-4 pro-marriage majority.
It will give us a legitimate opportunity to remove the lie of same-sex ‘marriage’ that was illegitimately imposed on the nation. A constitutionalist like Gorsuch replacing Kennedy also will greatly strengthen legal recognition of a vast array of religious liberty rights, not to mention the pro-life cause, and the fight for recognition of the truth of gender.
Anthony Kennedy, frequently called the “swing vote” on the Court, was a disaster on many of the issues we care most about. He wrote the majority opinion in Obergefell, imposing gay ‘marriage’ on the country. He also joined in many pro-abortion rulings over the years, and was a leader in creating special gay “rights” in the law.
First, we need to encourage President Trump to nominate someone who, like Neil Gorsuch, is in the mold of the late Antonin Scalia, a justice who will apply the original meaning of the constitution as written, and not attempt to mold the constitution to suit his or her own agenda.
Second, once the right nominee has been put forward, we will have a titanic fight to secure his or her confirmation. Control of the Supreme Court will be at stake, so you can bet that the left will devote everything they have to defeating a conservative nominee.
We will be announcing plans in the next day or two to engage you and all of NOM’s members in this momentous fight. In the meantime, please act immediately with an emergency donation so that we can aggressively fight for the nomination and confirmation of a justice who will uphold the constitution and restore marriage to our nation’s laws.
