Video: Miss California to be in pro-traditional marriage ad

Wednesday, May 6th, 2009


Miss California, Carrie Prejean, who offered memorable opposition (above) to same-sex marriage and a young, attractive new face for the movement against it, will appear tomorrow at a press conference hosted by the National Organization for Marriage at the National Press Club, according to a press release from the group.

She’ll be launching a new ad, the second in what the group says is a $1.5 million campaign.

The ad, the release says, will address:

What happens when a young California beauty pageant contestant is asked, “Do you support same-sex marriage?” She is attacked viciously for having the courage to speak up for her truth and her values. But Carrie’s courage inspired a whole nation and a whole generation of young people because she chose to risk the Miss USA crown rather than be silent about her deepest moral values. “No Offense” calls gay marriage advocates to account for their unwillingness to debate the real issue: Gay marriage has consequences.

NRO: Human Rights Campaign takes on the National Organization for Marriage

The Human Rights Campaign takes on the National Organization for Marriage’s new ads. Maggie Gallagher responds:

HRC’s record of truth and honesty about their intentions is not that impressive.  They once said marriage amendments weren’t necessary because there were no federal court cases.   Now there is one. They called us liars when we said public schools will teach about gay marriage if it’s the law-but they do in Massachussetts.  Serious religious liberty scholars from Eugene Volokh to Doug Laycock to Robin Wilson acknowledge the central driving idea behind gay marriage-there is no difference between same-sex and opposite-sex unions and supporters of marriage are engaging in discrimination if they think differently-will have consequences for the freedoms of tradtional faith communities. To pretend otherwise is to be profoundly unserious-if not deceptive-about what gay marriage means.
