Two weeks ago, NOM -- and thousands of good people like you-called on national gay marriage groups to stop using shocking images of children spewing angry obscenities to raise money for their cause.
Thousands of people just like you have signed our petition to protect the kids.
NOM's "Pink T-shirt video" is opening a lot of eyes to the hatred-inciting tactics of some prominent gay marriage organizations who've reportedly accepted more than $200,000 raised by this disturbing video.
Watch the video, with this warning: even with the profanities muted, it is still deeply disturbing. Make sure no children can see it, please, when you play it.
And pray for the children on this video mouthing the hate- and obscenity-filled scripts adults gave them to say-hatred against their friends, neighbors and fellow citizens who believe that marriage is the union of husband and wife.
NOM's demand is simple: Stop using small children shouting obscenities to make your case and raise money for your cause.
Is that too much to ask!?
The gay press is getting nervous: One gay paper wrote: "The group's first video Prop 8 is H8: Straight Talk on Gay Marriage has been viewed more than 2 million times. But its frequent - some would say excessive - use of the word **** has divided gay rights advocates." Adam Bink of the Courage Campaign's Prop 8 Trial Tracker [one of the groups profiting from the effort] says he "wasn't thrilled about (a) the strategy of using kids (b) how the video would present to the movable middle."
But so far, not a single so-called "mainstream" gay rights group has refused to accept the money.
That's why I need your help today: Don't back down now. Now is the time to keep the pressure on, to spotlight hatred and incivility and to insist on minimum standards of decency.
This kind of video has no place in a civilized society. Fight back by signing the petition.
And please, pass this on to a friend.
We have a short time to make sure that this kind of hatred does not go answered. We need your help to win a victory for decency, civility and kindness in America today!
