Dear Friend of Marriage and Religious Liberty,

Senator Ted Cruz’s victory [last night] is a resounding affirmation by the Republican voters of Iowa of their determination to protect the institution of marriage against the onslaught being waged against it by cultural and judicial elites.

Iowans have said to the five U.S. Supreme Court justices who in the Obergefell decision sought to impose “same-sex marriage” on them and the people of every other state: This will not stand!

Left-wing activists and the Democratic presidential candidates they support want to stigmatize Christians and other supporters of traditional marriage and bully them into acquiescence. But by giving traditional marriage advocate Ted Cruz a great victory this evening, Iowa Republicans have sent a message that they will fight for marriage and the family and refuse to be intimidated.

Senator Cruz’s triumph in Iowa proves that Republicans and many other Americans support his vow to resist and overturn the Obergefell decision, and his pledge to protect the rights of those who believe that marriage is between one man and one woman by passing the First Amendment Defense Act in his first 100 days as President of the United States.

As far back as JUNE of this year, Sen. Cruz told NPR, regarding Obergefell:

The parties to a case cannot ignore a direct judicial order, but it does not mean that those who are not parties to a case are bound by a judicial order…

It is not healthy for our democracy when judges on our Supreme Court are violating their judicial oath. And in both the Obamacare decision and the marriage decision, the justices decided that they wanted to re-write federal law and re-write the constitution. That’s not the way our Constitution operates, and, and it is a sad moment for the court when you have judges seizing authority that does not belong to them…

The Supreme Court follows the opinions of Manhattan and Washington DC, but it doesn’t follow the opinions of America.

The 2016 presidential race will be a watershed moment for the defense of core values and the rights of Americans of all faiths. The Campaign for American Principles intends to bring the fight to the Left-wing activists and ensure that a supporter of marriage and a friend of religious liberty is in the White House on January 2017.

Will you stand with Sen. Ted Cruz and the Campaign for American Principles in the fight for religious liberty?
