'Pro-Family' Fear-Mongering Zombies Release Gay Marriage Scare Ad

Nom

Is this the trailer for the Twilight sequel? The National Organization for Marriage's fear-mongering zombies have risen from their graves because same-sex marriage is taking over the country, apparently. This new ad, complete with storm clouds and lightning bolts, has gone national.

What a joke. These people obviously have no idea what love, or truth, is.

Watch them try to use the rainbow against us, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. I hope one day one of these asshole actor in this ad are up for a part they REALLY want and the producer and/or director is gay and they use this ad on their resume.

  2. It would have been more effective if they had worn the traditional Nazi Swastika on their arms. Otherwise it is consistent with bigoted messages being sent by these hate mongers.

  5. It seems to me that this commercial is actually a goldmine, should there be someone politically astute and connected enough to see it. (I got the astuteness down, but have no connections). They are actually doing far more than lying about three easily verifiable situations. First and foremost, of course, IS that they are lying, something the guardians of morality really shouldn't be caught at. They are lying that these things have anything at all to do with civil marriage, and they are lying about the basic circumstances of what they do concern. They must know that they are lying, but are willing to do so anyway. I think a lot of reasonable people would be willing to see that the lies mean this is not just about religious disapproval, but about basic prejudice. It just needs to be pointed out to them.

    But the three lies cited also indicate that they not only disapprove of homosexuality, but they have an animus towards gay people, and they want to be able to discriminate against gay people on the basis of religious belief. This is HUGE, because they are admitting it finally. We've always known it, but it doesn't get discussed very much.

    I see this as a commercial. NOM says that the people of America need to be protected from same-sex marriage. They cite three examples of their religious beliefs being impinged on my gay marriage. but none of these situations had anything to do with marriage. they lied. none of these things occurred as presented. they lied. It was fear mongering and nothing but. In each of these cases, the one truth that they told was that they want to be able to discriminate on the basis of religious belief, and that our society, which has laws at every level of government forbidding discrimination on the basis of religious belief, should give them a pass because it is about gay people, instead of about Jews, or Blacks, or Mormons. (A subtle dig? A reminder of a history some religionists would like to forget? You be the judge!)

    do we really want to go down that road, and if we do, who will be next?

    They have given us a goldmine. someone please use it.

  6. I'm confused by this ad. Just how is two people of the same sex getting married "bringing the issue into" their heterosexual lives? How is it taking their freedom away? How does it "punish" them? How is their "choice" threatened? Just what choice is it we're threatening? How does a gay marriage affect theirs?

    Isn't this all backwards? Aren't they the ones trying to deny us something, denying a freedom, a choice? I'm most offended by the Doctor, who seems to be floating the idea that her faith should be a reason to withhold treatment.

    I'm glad they're afraid. I hope there aren't too many people out there impressed by this ridiculous campaign. I look forward to Jon Stewart's evisceration of this stupid ad and I will happily contribute to releasing that nationally as an ad to follow this one whenever it is aired.

  10. Plagiarized from "Chicken Little" "the sky is falling the sky is falling..." is just sad. The tax status of a church who owned a public hall for rent was changed .... Boo Hoo. It's 2009, we don't have signs in the resturant windows anymore that say "Whites Only", either you treat everyone fairly or you don't do business with the public.

    Catholic Family Services closed their doors rather than treat a gay family equally because of problems with their faith. If you can't obide by the laws of the land, then you shouldn't offer the service. Notice they didn't close any of the churches where a Priest was caught molesting a child. hmmm....

    As far as the doctor not treating someone because he has to choose faith or job, it's not a matter of faith or job, there is something called the hypocratic oath. No hosptial would allow that type of prejudice, you either treat everyone with the same level of medical care or you get the heck out of medicine, how ridiculous.

    42 years ago when inter-racial marriage was still outlawed because God fearing people would never allow it, she would have been the poster child for that bigotry as well. She's using her pen to earn money, and the more outrageous she is the more she makes, so I am just not buying into her using me for her profit by scaring people with a flowerly word portrayal of a monster image of me as a married gay man.

  11. We lost the war because we fought the wrong battle: what we should have argued is that, who you spend your life with is such a fundamentally personal thing that the state has no right to interfere with it (the pursuit of happiness). The state should have no right to determine who marries who.

    Most of the marriage laws were designed, by the way, to "protect" woman from polygamy, venereal disease, etc. Unfortunately, once the state is given a power, it almost never comes back to the individual.

  12. You might be interested to know that the 5th actor to speak from the "Gathering Storm" ad is named Steve Abaroa. He is a teacher of Drama and Shakespeare (HA!!) at Highland High School. Email him at either on steve_abaroa@gilbert[dot]k12[d ot]az[dot]us or sabaroa@yahoo[dotcom] and let him know how you feel! Oh yes, and I believe you can call him at (480) 813-0051 ext 2714

  13. People can be so dumb. Since most religions disappove of same-sex marriage, most same-sex marriages would probably occur as civil marriages anyways (except for the exceptions, of course).

    Rainbow coalition just made me laugh. Wow... just, wow.

    I just hope that people ignore this mindless drivel. Then again, there's a lot of stupid people in the world, my parents included. :(
