“Love Not Laws” the Best Yet in Countering N.O.M.’s “Propaganda Storm”

OK, so I wasn’t going to get my blog involved in something that’s being done so well, both on television and on the Internet: countering the propaganda that the National Organization for Marriage (which is a total misnomer, because they’re really against marriage, except for their own special interest group). In fact, if you want to see a lot of great vids parodying NOM’s what some are calling a “cult classic” (And, yes, “cult” is the operative word here.), just do a quick youtube search for “NOM parody”, and you’ll see how creative gay people can be.

But anyway, this one is the best I’ve seen so far, and the people in it are actually who they are, unlike NOM’s agitprop.

This accompanies the video on the youtube page:

Love Not Laws is a coalition of people of various ages, races, and beliefs, who came together to show solidarity and support for same-sex marriage. In response to videos that are circulating the internet that use fear and falsehoods to promote an offensive agenda of ‘separate and unequal’, Love Not Laws created a video that was grounded in compassion, emotion, and heart.

If you oppose same-sex marriage, we hope that this video will cause you to examine your own biases. If you are in support of same-sex marriage, we hope that this video inspires you to act. And if you feel that you are too small, or that your efforts won’t matter, we ask you to remember that we were a group of people who, individually thought they could do nothing… but together, were able to accomplish something bigger than all of us.
