The National Organization for Marriage released an ad saying that allowing gay couples to marry would be akin to legalizing pedophilia and incest.
In the video posted on the group’s website, a female narrator says the government has only three options to influence the behavior of its citizens.
In the first example, the government promotes police work, permits most occupations and prohibits drug dealing.
The second example has the government promoting “natural marriage,” permitting some relationships and prohibiting incest and pedophilia.
“Natural marriage,” the narrator adds, “perpetuates and stabilizes society. Everyone benefits from that, even those who don’t get married. … Same-sex marriage offers no benefit for society as a whole. In fact, it hurts us.”
NOM formed in 2007 to help pass California’s gay marriage ban, Proposition 8.
