A Big Gay Storm is Brewing

It's Easter, and the National Organization for Marriage is rolling out a hilarious anti-gay scary-boo advertisement.



While getting ready to go out last night, it was almost as though Jesus himself were tickling the parody center of my brain. I was COMPELLED to make a response.



Note: You need to have been following the issue pretty closely to get the final gag. Close on the heels of American conservatives adopting "teabagging" as a method of protest, the National Organization for Marriage decided to shorten their "Two Million for Marriage" campaign to "2M4M."

Like, they live in such a bubble that they don't even double-check their acronyms against popular knowledge. They have terrible quality control of their memes.

Not bad!

What has always gotten me about the whole 'biblical evidence' thing is what you touched on with your video - Christ never mandated that his followers should not be gay. He did, however, explicitly say that divorce and remarriage were not right. And yet, there's a powerful amount of divorced christians. One would think that there would be a lot of stuff and bother about remarriage and yet...

Just saw the original video and OMG, it is really true - North Americans are dumb. :) :) :)

Or more correctly no country has a monopoly on stupidity.

Stupidity and fear, JJ...it's like, if some folks don't feel threatened, they don't feel significant.

Exactly, Tricky...it's a "salad bar" approach to religion. I'm sure every religion does this in order to avoid the more odious tenets of an ancient text, but the fact that they still claim to be "following the word" makes me laugh and sigh.

Well done! And, yes, anyone who can figure out an organization's intended memed name will certainly get the "Alliance"'s meaning.

I tried clicking on the original video's link, but was informed that it was removed from YouTube. But based on viewing yours, I can imagine what theirs was all about.

I thought that you looked especially vulnerable, peturbed, or pouty at just the right moments. Nice outfit, too!

And, yes, it seems that most established religions with a conservative mindset (or orthodox approach to practicing the "ancient ways") throw up a wall of intolerance to all who oppose its homogeneity [previous word carefully selected].

I am really behind in my blog reading but I just wanted to say that was brilliant! Well done Muffy.

And what an understated costume...

I think my favourite part was the "My cat is an ex-gay" comment.
