Stand for Marriage! Vote With Your Dollars!

September 29, 2009

Stand For Marriage Maine needs help! Their coffers have run completely dry and we still have a month to go in the campaign.  Maine is the second state that has had the opportunity to actually vote on their marriage law.  If we lose in Maine, the opposition will be able to say that people voted gay marriage in.

I was on twitter yesterday and saw a link go by with the comment “I’m obsessively compulsively hitting refresh—donations are pouring in for equality!”  I went to the link and they had a goal of 30,000.00 with a graphic showing how much had been donated.  I looked at the number and hit refresh.  Every time I refreshed, the number increased.  In the five minutes that I monitored the page, the amount had risen thousands of dollars.  Imagine what damage they can do with that kind of firepower unopposed.

The opposition is martialing it’s forces and donations are pouring in to their coffers from gay marriage advocates all over California and other states nationwide.  After their stinging loss in California, they can’t afford to lose Maine.  They’re pouring all their attention and resources into the state hoping to tip the election.  There is a dire need for donations.  We can’t afford to lose this fight.  You can’t protect marriage with empty air.  Please forward this message to friends, neighbors, churches, ANYONE who can help! and let’s get them the help they need to win.

Stand for Marriage Maine’s Campaign page is here, click to donate: http://www.standformarriagemaine.com/

Send this out to anyone you know who also might be able to help!  A little from many can go a long way.

    COME ON PEOPLE!

    We *would have lost Prop 8* if we had not dug deep and often.

    The opposition will.

    God help us if we lose Maine.

    DONATE NOW!

    I am.

    You are right Rick. I donated! Every bit makes a difference. It’s all part of the bigger scheme of things. The more we can educate people about the issues (like NOT what they’re reading and watching on CNN, ABC and the rest) the more advocates we’ll have when the issue goes national. Sooner or later this question is going to come up on a national level. The progressives in this country are salivating at the thought of canning morality from the public square for good.

    It’s true we can’t afford to lose Maine. The gay activists know it too. You can tell by the fury of their donations and outside involvement in this campaign.

    Hey thanks for the info! I donated too. This is a big deal on the east coast right now. We just lost marriage in New Hampshire. It was a sneaky underhanded campaign. Just made me so angry. Our gov. didn’t listen at all to the voters. Maine you are so lucky!

      It was heartbreaking to see so many states go down last spring! Imposing same sex marriage on people is completely wrong. California had a method of redress, and so does Maine, but most states don’t.

    Your blog’s tagline should be:
    Standing for Freedom and Peace (conditionally)

    Call it what you want, but you’re fighting against equality, not for tradition. Marriage wasn’t always a sanctity. History revisionists like you would say otherwise, though.

      Dylan, we’re all equal. All people are equal, the way God made us. All actions are not equal though. As much as you may want them to be, people’s choices will always have consequences. Your choices have consequences that I do not choose. That’s ok. We don’t have to fight about it, but your desire to have things your way comes at a cost to me that I am not willing to pay. I will defend my freedom to think and believe differently than you do. If you believed in freedom, you would also.

      I just spoke with a woman here in Maine whose family’s livelihood is being threatened by gay activists who believe they should not be able to speak their mind. That is not right.
