I've written before asking your financial and prayer support for solid pro-life, pro-family candidates. And I'm asking again for a man who is a great pro-lifer and a personal friend, Bob Marshall.
It's hard to believe that a Virginia House of Delegates member could become a national target of the homosexual lobby, but Bob is the top target of national and state pro homosexual groups and abortion groups like Planned Parenthood and NARAL whom he's fought for years.
For example, the homosexual advocacy group, Equality Virginia PAC, wrote recently:
Defeating Marshall (like our prior defeats of Delegates Dick Black and Brad Marrs) would echo resoundingly in the Republican caucus and among some conservative Democrats … EVPAC is continuing our work to build collaborations with … national groups to provide … effective backing for pro-equality campaigns.
Their purpose is not just to defeat Bob. It is to ensure that other legislators across the United States will not challenge the homosexual agenda and to eliminate lawmakers who take their faith seriously. Last October 31, 2008, Time Magazine ("The Gay Mafia That's Redefining Liberal Politics”) showed how out-of-state homosexual money already defeated two Virginia pro-family state delegates in 2005.
Bob Marshall does not duck difficult questions. Bob flew pro-life activist Julie Mackama (who was conceived as a result of sexual assault) into Virginia for a Richmond legislative hearing. Julie spoke for Bob’s bill which blocked tax-paid “Morning After Pills” at state colleges. (Bob’s bill passed the House of Delegates, but failed in a Senate Committee.)
Former Congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave (R-CO) lost in 2008, because she ran out of money and could not answer fabricated claims brought against her by the same homosexual and abortion groups now trying to beat Bob Marshall. Bob Marshall is running in his 10th general election, and he needs our help!
Bob is holding a fund-raising event at Rappahannock Cellars on August 30 from 5:30 to 7:30. If you live in the Northern Virginia area come on out. I'll be there to support Bob and I'd love to meet you.
You and I can ensure that the state legislator and All Saints parishioner who authored Virginia’s Constitutional Marriage Amendment in 2006, and Virginia’s ban on Partial Birth infanticide abortions does not lose his office this November for lack of support from those of us who have the gift of Faith.
Go to Bob's web site to see his broad appeal. I ask you to join me in supporting Bob Marshall’s reelection with a check, the largest you can make. Virginia has no limit on campaign donations and corporate money is allowed. You can donate on-line at the website or mail your check to Friends of Bob Marshall P.O. Box 421 Manassas, VA 20108.
I know these are hard economic times, but if we love the unborn and value family we really need to come through for people like Bob who are more than politicians. Bob is a warrior for the Lord. He needs our prayers and our pocketbooks.
May the Lord reward you for whatever you can do to help Bob be re-elected to the Virginia House of Delegates this November.
With a grateful heart,
Mary Ann Kreitzer
