NOM Launches More Hateful Ads In Minnesota: VIDEO

NOMMNAd

The anti-gay National Organization for Marriage has been funneling loads of dough to help the conservative Minnesota for Marriage and write homophobic discrimination into the state's constitution. And they seem intent on spending that money before next week's election, because the group today released an ad, "Broken Promises," in which they make one final, desperate push to convince voters that not passing the amendment will destroy religious liberties and gay-ify public education and all sorts of other terrible things.

Watch it in all its hyperbolic glory AFTER THE JUMP.

UPDATE: I was wrong. This ad is not their final ad. They put out another, which I've also included AFTER THE JUMP. It's YouTube description claims, "Minnesotans can respect gays and lesbians, but they don't need to change the definition of marriage to do so."

  1. Sadly, these ads work with the voters every time. Not one exception.

  2. re: gay-ifying public education - it's so odd, the people most against "kids learning about GAYS" are the ones whose children need to learn about GAYS the most.

    why? because those kids grow up with no positive affirming messages about LGBT people from their own families.

    and many of them are gay. you get gay kids who know damn well how bigoted their parents are, and non-gay kids who repeat their parent's bigotries.

    sorry, folks. the world only spins forward.

    the question is not "do you think gays should marry?"

    it's "Would you rather attend your own child's wedding to a person of the same sex or gender, or attend their funeral?"

  3. NOM has proven over and over again that they know what they are doing. Ads like this should have been expected and if there wasn't a response ad prepared shame on us for never learning our lesson. I predict we will be 1-3 on Tuesday.

  5. Sadly I don't think it will even be close in Minnesota. I have a str8 friend who went out door to door a few weeks ago to talk to people about the marriage amendment and she sent me a text saying how she didn't really understand before just how hard it must be to be gay with so much hostility against us every day and how sorry she was that people are so stupid.

  6. If the amendment passes, I will be quite loud in my opposition to the phrase "Minnesota nice." In fact, I hope we can come up with bumper stickers that say, "Minnesota - not nice." At least, it'll make me feel a little better until I can move to another state.

  7. I LOVE Judge Judy; BUT, THE FOUNDATIONAL IDEOLOGY OF THE FOUNDING FATHERS OF THIS NATION SUPPORTS MARRIAGE BETWEEN MALE AND FEMALE.

    IF PASSED, TRADITIONAL GENDER ROLES WILL HAVE AN IMPACT ON SAME-SEX MARRIAGE. TO THEIR DISMAY, HOMOSEXUALS WILL REALIZE THE IMPORTANCE OF TRADITIONAL-GENDER ROLES ON THEIR WAY TO DIVORCE COURT.

  8. The way America is going it will end up with Fanatical Christian Dictators if nobody stops, then we will end up like Iran and their religious fanatical dictators and that will be a living hell on earth. It will be the hateful Christians who bring the world to the end, the end the Christians keep talking about, it will be the Christian with their hate and lies and propaganda towards gays and other religious minorities in the world that will bring it to an end.

  9. Rick all fundamentalist and even orthodox world views are toxic and dangerous. We all need less old testament and more sermon on the mount. These people have no concept we are all really neighbors. As in love your neighbor.

  10. I agree that we should have seen this coming. NOM always trots out these same people claiming that the schools will be forced to indoctrinate your children. They ran basically the same ads here in California as they are running now in all four states. These specific scare tactics should have been addressed early and often.

  11. it's "Would you rather attend your own child's wedding to a person of the same sex or gender, or attend their funeral?"
