2014 March for Marriage Talking Points

 MARRIAGE MATTERS BECAUSE KIDS DESERVE BOTH A MOM AND A DAD!
o Social science has demonstrated conclusively that kids do best when raised by

both a loving mother and father in a stable marriage.
 

Kids deserve better than to be subjected to the radical social experiment of redefining marriage and family into genderless institutions. In a culture where absentee fathers and broken families are such a problem, do we really want to send the message to future generations that moms and dads are non-essential, interchangeable and disposable?

o Redefining marriage logically asserts that motherhood and fatherhood are not

unique and special enterprises, that Parent 1 and Parent 2 will do.

As one 11-year-old girl asked the Minnesota legislature when testifying on their proposal to redefine marriage, “Which parent do I not – my mom or my dad? I’ll ask again – which parent do I not need, my mom or my dad? I hope that you can see that every child needs a mom and a dad; please don’t change your law on marriage to say otherwise.”

 WHEN YOU STAND FOR MARRIAGE, YOU ARE NOT STANDING ALONE!
o The majority of citizens in the majority of states still believe in marriage as

the union of one man and one woman.

Most states still define marriage as being between only a man and a woman, and in most cases by means of a popularly-adopted constitutional amendment. Until very recently, the truth of man-woman marriage was nearly universally accepted across all cultural divides and in every era. It is just common sense.

o Our young people in particular need to see how much support there is for
marriage at the grassroots.

 By standing tens-of-thousands strong together in our nation’s capital, we
will send a clear message to pro-marriage Americans everywhere, and especially young people: “You are not alone! Do not be afraid to stand up and speak out for the values that have been passed onto you.”

 Marriage is not a divisive belief: on the contrary, as the March will
demonstrate, it brings people together from every race and background, from every faith, and from every age group. Marriage is a universal good. A PROJECT OF THE NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR MARRIAGE EDUCATION FUND

2014 March for Marriage Talking Points

 A BROAD, DIVERSE COALITION
o The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) is partnering with pro-family

organizations, national and state groups, religious congregations and churches, and people of good will everywhere.

The coalition is diverse but united behind one essential fact: Marriage is the union of one man and one woman, and government had no power or right to change that. Everyone and anyone can march with us: people of every race and ethnic background, of any political party or none, of any faith or no faith at all. Marriage is what unites us, and marriage is why we march.
