NOM "It's Working!" - Now send us money

National Organization for Marriage would like people to believe that a federal marriage amendment has some potential for passage.

The last amendment (27th) to the US Constitution was passed in 1992. It was proposed on September 25, 1789. An amendment proposed in Congress requires a two-third majority in both houses for passage as well as ratification by at least 38 states. It's not in the cards.

However, according to Brian Brown in an email blast:

A few weeks ago when I wrote to you urging you to contact your federal legislators urging them to support the Marriage Protection Amendment introduced by Rep. Tim Huelskamp, you were quick to respond. Well, now I can write to you to tell you that when you spoke up, your elected leaders listened!

The proposed amendment now has over 40 cosponsors signed on! Most significantly, it has been announced that the first Democrat (hopefully of many!) has joined as a cosponsor: Rep. Nick Rahall of West Virginia's 3rd District!
[...]
The progress already made on getting this amendment to a vote on the floor of the House is only possible because NOM supporters like you band together and take the time to tell your elected leaders that you, and the majority of Americans, stand for marriage — and that those who represent us in Washington need to do the same.
