New Disgusting NOM Ad Says Same-Sex Marriage 'Hurts' Society, Compares It to Incest and Pedophilia: VIDEO


A new ad from the National Organization for Marriage instructs viewers that same-sex marriage  is like incest, pedophilia, and drug use and should be prohibited, arguing that it harms society. Like most NOM videos, comments are disabled at YouTube and the clip has a majority of 'dislikes', a sentiment with which I'm sure you'll agree.

  1. An English narrator? Why does NOM hate America?

  2. When you alienate "the gays", your propaganda will be done by a straight designer so anxious to try out his new font pack that you'll see 50 fonts in 50 seconds, and it'll look like a 1950's health class filmstrip. Just sayin'....

  3. No benefits for society as a whole? Doesn't freedom benefit society as a whole? The Declaration of Independence and Constitution say it does.

    Their parents probably made the same claim about interracial marriage, as did their grandparents about interreligious marriage.

  4. That art style reminds me of the retro 50s design of the Fallout series. Which is pretty much the time NOM wants to get back to

  5. Once again, all of their claims about how and why "natural marriage" helps children, men and women, are "supported" either by clearly biased conservative "study" groups, or studies showing the benefits of children and people being in two-parent households vs. single-parent households, NOT opposite vs. same-sex households. Many of the people who have conducted these studies have not taken kindly to NOM and the like, perverting their work.

  6. and this, Maggie Gallagher, is why your son Patrick is waiting for you to die before he comes out.

    and this is why, Brian Brown, you are going to attend the funeral of at least one of your eight children.

    ditto Rick Santorum.

  7. Are they really as stupid as this add insinuates by the childish graphics and narration it contains. Besides the obvious the common denominator an
    IQ of 40? The good news is that I'm sure the average person immediately felt talked down to...because we're smarter than this add would imply the average person is. Well, either that or we're in a lot more hot water than I thought. Can you imagine if the whole world talked like this....googoo-gaagaa.

  8. @Paul B. - Yes, I think that IS the IQ they are aiming for. The accent of the narrator reminds me of that annoying Brit from "weakest link"... who very outspokenly reminded the viewing audience how stupid a person was.

  9. Listening to it a second time (ouch!) I realized that the use of a lovely articulate Brit makes sense. Can you imagine the same add with a few ya'll and you betcha's thrown in? That would have tied in perfectly with the narrative & message...but been over the top shocking stupid... as opposed to whatever this is.

    Posted by: PAUL B. | Oct 16, 2012 7:22:04 PM

  10.'re right, it does! I think they try to lend some credibility with the accent...since it implies good grammar & some education. Oh well, I must admit...a good British accent works on me too.

  11. This kind of concealed bigotry drives me over the edge.
    On the one hand, "natural marriage" on the other, "paedophilia and incest".

    Gee, that really makes things clear, I was getting confused, I thought that guys who committed and dearly wanted to be married together would also be socially cohesive.
    How wrong can I be ?

    Now I won't be able to get to sleep, I'll be in a rage all night.
    Damn you, Charlie Brown.

  12. They had (accidentally) allowed comments for a while. But after getting reamed by 95% negative comments, they finally disabled them. -- Hey, NOM... if you can't take the heat, get out of the discrimination game!

    Posted by: David in Houston | Oct 16, 2012 7:28:51 PM

  13. Hey Jacktwist!
    Keep in mind that ultimately we have "natural selection" as our ally. It's a slow route to take but close your eyes tonight and imagine a world where the only bigots are "extinct bigots"...for it will come to pass. Sleep tight.

    Posted by: PAUL B. | Oct 16, 2012 7:30:56 PM

  14. That's not a British accent, sounds more like South African...

  15. Marriage is a legal contract. How can a contract be natural or unnatural?

    Posted by: marshallt | Oct 16, 2012 8:16:45 PM

  16. Natural marriage?

    Show me any other organism in nature that marries. Then maybe we can talk.

  17. @ ANASTASIA BEAVERHAUSEN, I haven't looked at the video yet, but I'll bet it creates the "us versus them" tool so common to bigoted thinking. In their minds, they have so far removed homosexuals from humanity that it makes intuitive sense for them to talk as if we're not even part of humanity or society. Our freedom and rights make no difference to "society" because, in their minds, they are the only society that matters.

  18. Ads like this show why it's so important for you to get registered and GO VOTE! It's also a great reason to give a few bucks to the campaign fighting this rubbish. Clean out the change jars, forego a dinner out, and send the money to thefour2012. Or, whatever state you choose. We all need to fight these bigots so vote and donate. Let's go win!

  19. Wow. Thanks TOLERATING me and my relationship with my partner of 45 years. We also TOLERATE you, but here's the thing: Your views and actions HARM our society, and therefore we cannot PROMOTE them. Here's why: Your right wing bigotry and hatred HURT us, by promoting SUICIDE, BULLYING, INEQUALITY and RAMPANT STUPIDITY.

  20. Also, the ad says nothing about biology until the very end. On top of everything else, it offers no logical reasons for why Marriage is biological. If marriage is so biological, why have I never seen lemurs walking down the aisle? Or Meerkats? Freaking spare me!

  22. Stay calm and go into your fallout shelter. What a piece of B.S. "Natural Marriage" WTF? How about getting out of the 1950s and admitting that just like right handed tools "Natural Marriage" does not work for everyone. The whole religious freedom argument makes me want to hurl. Anyone can worship and live as one feels they should. They just cannot impose those beliefs on everyone else.

  24. Ironic, that the only pedophiles I know are Catholic priests. Better check your own closets (and family trees) ladies, as most pedophile activity (around 90%) is HETEROSEXUAL in nature. Most victims KNOW their molester. Watch your daughters...very, very carefully. While you all are busy huffing and puffing about gay marriage, that creepy brother-in-law may be hitting on your daughter.

  25. Please, please, PLEASE someone do an infographic refuting EVERY SINGLE DECEPTION in this infographic. I would do it myself but I don't have Adobe AfterEffects…. although I may get a copy just to do this. And why is NOM getting a British teenager to do the voice??
