(WASHINGTON, D.C.) - The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) today launched a nationwide video entitled “Protect The Kids: Stop the Exploitation” in response to and exposing a fundraising effort by angry gay marriage activists that sells T-shirts and uses young children shouting obscenities to raise money for their cause.
“The American Foundation for Equal Rights, Equality California, Courage Campaign, and Lambda Legal have certainly reached a low point displaying a poor lack of judgment for refusing to disassociate themselves from this video of real children shouting angry profanities as props to raise money for their cause,” stated Brian Brown, President of NOM.
“We call on responsible LGBT organizations to return any donations raised as a result of this shock video, in which adults put profanities in the mouths of children and encourage what can only be called open hatred of their friends, neighbors and fellow citizens who believe marriage is the union of husband and wife.”
NOM is asking these gay marriage activists to reject all funding from this profane campaign and calls on the video’s producers to end immediately this organized effort to exploit children. “No matter how much we may disagree with each other, ads like these that promote incivility and hatred leave no room for discourse,” Brown added. “By signing NOM’s Kid Petition, you are asking the above activists to stop using innocent children shouting obscenities to make your case. Is that too much to ask?”
