Debunking NOM's Bigotry/Biology Ad

In this video, Matt Baume of the American Foundation for Equal Rights (AFER) debunks the latest lie-filled ad from the anti-gay hate group, the National Organization for Man/Lady-Only Marriage. Anti-gay groups around the US (and in New Zealand and Australia…) use these same nonsense claims, smears, defamation and lies. Because of this, the video could be useful for justice advocates in many places, not just the US.

I’m sick of the radical right getting away with their bigotry, and having their lies accepted as “just another viewpoint”. But it’s not just a “viewpoint”—it’s bald hatred, and flat out wrong. Their lies, smears and defamation must be exposed for what they are. Still, I know most people will never see this video, and also that far too many will hear NOM’s lies and think they’re true. We need more people speaking the truth and standing up to the bigots.

We’re on the right side of history and—eventually—freedom and justice will prevail. We all need to make that happen a little sooner.
