Scam: WorldNetDaily Charging $29.99 To Send Anti-Gay Letters To Congress

The WorldNetDaily “Superstore” is charging its customers $29.99 to mail every member of Congress a letter asking him/her to defend the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). Describing the letter as part of “an innovative, high-tech, grass-roots lobbying campaign,” WND writes:
Marriage is under attack by zealots who want to redefine the cornerstone institution as one not between a man and a woman – but one between a man and a man or a woman and a woman.
Nothing will result in the destruction of Western Civilization faster than such a development.
Now there is a way to fight back.
It’s an innovative, high-tech, grass-roots lobbying campaign called “TIME TO DEFEND MARRIAGE: The Genesis 2:24 Campaign.” Supported by the Family Research Council, Dr. James Dobson, Gary Bauer and dozens of high-profile Christian leaders throughout the country, headed by Ken Hutcherson, pastor of the Antioch Bible Church in Washington state. It’s a project of a new coalition called “The Initiative for Moral Excellence” – or TIME.
The campaign allows you to lobby all 535 members of Congress to fight legal challenges to the Defense of Marriage Act, a piece of legislation defining marriage as an institution between one man and one woman and signed by President Clinton into law. [emphasis added]
Instead of bombarding Congress members with letters from non-constituents, a more “high-tech” option might be for WND customers to simply email their Congressional representatives directly. It’d also be about $29.99 cheaper.
This isn't the first time WND has tried this scheme. In 2010, WND launched an almost identical scam while allegedly campaigning against Elena Kagan’s Supreme Court nomination.
