God's Defenders At NOM Angry About 'It Getteth Better'

The National Organization for Marriage is most wroth with publishers Simon & Schuster for their "It Getteth Better Vid." In the vid, God The Father Almighty reassures LGBT teens not only that it gets better, but that the first couple really was Adam and Steve. He also reveals that He Himself has a crush on Ryan Reynolds.

On their anonymous blog, NOM wrote:

We guess Simon & Schuster thinks this is smart marketing -- mocking Christian pastors who preach the bible's teaching on sexuality (warning: many folks will find this deeply offensive).

Simon & Schuster is probably right about the marketing thing. As New Civil Rights Movement points out, "It Getteth Better" has about 132,000 Google matches. (By my own count, it's 129,000. In any case, there's a lot of linking going on.)

But what's this business about "warning: many folks will find this deeply offensive"? Is NOM really acknowledging that its audience is too lily-livered to handle a little light religious satire? Satire created, moreover, to make a bunch of depressed teenagers less likely to commit suicide? You'd think they'd be a little tougher, seeing as they've got the all-powerful creator of the universe on their side.

  1. Facebook, Twitter and YouTube give NOM free gay bashing blood money begging violence inciting bully pulpits because they don't want life to get better for LGBT children. If they did, they would ban NOM and the rest of those heterosupremacist tyrannical theocRAT corporate cults.

    Nah. It is an invitation to those who get off on being righteously outraged to witness deeply offensive stuff, become righteously outraged, and donate money to NOM.

  3. Just remember, NOM is nothing more than a hate organization who feels extremely financially threatened by the changing tide from America's youth who by in large accept all forms of equality for the LGBT community. Although they will never admit it, they know very well it's only a matter of time before they're toast. Why do you think Brian Brown crIed after the passage of marriage equality in NY? It had nothing to do with marriage, he knew at that moment it was the beginning of the end for the financial fat cow (no pun, Maggie) known as NOM.

    NOM and their mindless, ignorant followers are so blinded by their hatred they can't even see how amusing and incredibly entertaining it is to watch their heads explode from every step we make towards equality.

  4. Note that NOM copied the video to their own site, rather than linking to the original--almost certainly in violation of Youtube's terms of service.

  5. NOM does not have a right to take other's interpretation of God and mold it to theirs. I know they believe so highly of the God they've read about, but every human being has a soul and a brain and the right to their own belief about God. My advice to NOM would be to not watch this video, because they are not talking to them. I only wish NOM wasn't talking about me in their own videos, but I am gay.

  12. I guess they're taking lessons from the muslims and their feeling over Allah. If it's not NOM is the dumb religious freaks the republicans have running for President.

  13. NOM is upset because only they should be alloyed to put words into God's mouth.
