What we have to look forward to if the marriage amendment passes

In this morning’s “Life is depressing in the right-wing-overse” file, Under the Dome reported last night that the Christian right has begun radio ads in favor of the anti-LGBT marriage amendment in North Carolina.

But, of course, if the dad-blamed thing actually passes the legislature next week, these ads will be but a mere prelude to the onslaught of offensive commercials that we’ll all have to endure for months on end.

If you’d like to get a taste for all of the baloney that the sex-obessed theocrats will be laying on us over the coming year (and, maybe, begin to prepare yourself for having to explain it to your young children and grandchildren) check out this 2009 post from the Huffington Post — it’s entitled “The Worst Anti-Gay Marriage Ads Ever Made.”

    You mean like those ads that show Mormon missionaries breaking into people’s houses and taking away their marriage licenses? Yeah, those are pretty horrible. Why didn’t those ads feature black people doing that? They constitute a much larger share of the California electorate than do Mormons.

    “There’s a storm coming “, is disturbing and funny on so many levels, reminds me of the old Reagan fear mongering “There’s a bear in the woods” ad. “There’s a storm coming” parody is freaking great! The line at the bottom says it all, there’s a storm coming all right, and it’s going take away straight people’s right to not let gay people get married. As the parents of five children, my wife and I always taught them to be respectful and tolerant of others no matter what their differences might be. It is beyond us that the christian right believes they have a monopoly on morality, and its definition. It is quite the opposite.

    How about we make a deal? Just don’t pass the darned thing out of the legislature and then everyone can be spared from the ordeal of enduring ads on the subject.

    I’d go for that.

    Rob- fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me. Those of us who believe in normal marriage know that someone will eventually vote on NC’s marriage law- the question is, will it be the people of NC, or the seven lawyers on the NC Supreme Court?

    Yeah – we’ve heard our fill this week from the right-wing lock bangers about “normal marriage” and “fool” is definitely the operative word.
