From the Transcript:

Q: You mentioned civil rights. Are you comparing this to various civil rights measures which have come to the Congress over the years?

MR. SNOW: Not -- well, these -- it --

Q: Is this a civil right?

MR. SNOW: Marriage? It actually -- what we're really talking about here is an attempt to try to maintain the traditional meaning of an institution that has maintained one meeting for -- meaning for a period of centuries. And furthermore --

Help Create a Media War Chest to Preserve Marriage

Dear [cheap laugh]

In less than two weeks the U.S. Senate will vote on the Marriage Protection Amendment to the Constitution. It's time for us to make a final push to stop liberal judges at the state and federal level who want to remake the family and end man-woman marriage in the United States. We appreciate your deep concern about family issues facing our nation. None of them is more important to our children than the future of marriage.

To make our final push for the Marriage Protection Amendment effective, we need your help, if you are financially able, by contributing to our marriage advocacy project.

Over the next seven weeks Family Research Council's policy experts and media voices will take fresh messages about the sanctity of marriage onto the nation's airwaves, religious and secular alike. We have our work cut out for us as you know. In the past few weeks, the media have been filled with appearances by Mary Cheney and others who are working to undercut the importance of marriage to our survival as a society.

The media have delighted in the fact that Vice President Cheney's daughter publicly opposes the very convictions that brought her father's political party into the White House. But this issue isn't about one family's personal drama. It's about what's best for every family and for our nation's future. Tony Perkins was pleased to record a new television spot to get out the word on the need for the Marriage Protection Amendment. Watch it here and be sure to share this message with as many of your friends and family members as you can.

Remember, our opponents come to this with a deep war chest. They are focused on this issue like no other, and they have hour after hour of free media time from their liberal friends at the networks. To counter this effort, we need a media war chest of our own for this major push. Please consider a tax-deductible gift right now to Family Research Council to help us with our media outreach in these last weeks before the pivotal Senate and House votes. Our nation can't afford to lose ground in the fight to save man-woman marriage.

God bless you.

P.S. Homosexual activist groups are pouring millions of dollars into their campaign to end marriage as we know it. They are counting on their friends in the media to drown out the vast majority of Americans who support and have voted time and again for the protection of man-woman marriage. We need to match these activists stride for stride in the media. Be as generous as you can so that we can carry this fight with the fire it deserves. You have my heartfelt thanks.
