The so-called National Organization for Marriage continues to make up facts for their anti-gay ads. We do have to admit, NOM appears to be more advanced than gays in the area of storytelling. We just get so stuck on that darn thing called the truth. After the jump find out what NOM’s ad is saying to oppose marriage equality in New York, and how much they pledged to the fight.
NOM is set to air a television ad in New York that falsely claims marriage between two committed gay or lesbian people would be taught in schools.
"We're fighting for loving, committed gay and lesbian couples going down to the courthouse to get married, which has absolutely nothing to do with what is taught in schools," said Human Rights Campaign President Joe Solmonese. "The ad is a piece of fiction. School districts determine what is taught in schools."
PolitiFact, a premier non-partisan fact-checking web site, deemed NOM's message about schools “false” on their Truth-O-Meter as recently as February. In 2009, NOM aired the same ad while opposing marriage equality in New York.
“Independent fact checkers will quickly determine, as they did previously with other NOM propaganda, that things don’t quite add up in this New York commercial,” said HRC’s NOM Project Director Kevin Nix. “Fear and fiction is the mother’s milk of this secretive, virulently anti-gay organization.”
Also WJS reports that today NOM announced that they are pledging $1.5 million to fight marriage equality in New York.
