We All Knew This Would Come

It's funny how social conservatives are running scared, and doing everything in their power to frighten people into believing what they want. This video was on Slog today.

If you look at the bottom of the screen, you'll notice this: "The stories these actors are telling are based on real incidents." So these people that strongly oppose gay marriage, or whatever (they never actually say anything in the video), are too afraid to actually show their faces and beliefs in an advertisement? This is so fake. It's only about marketing a product: opposition to gay rights. And in response to these claims from the actors:

You're afraid. Why? Some advocates of same-sex marriage have taken the issue far beyond same-sex couples. In what way? They want to bring the issue into your life? How so? You're freedom will be taken away? Explain. You have to choose between your faith and your job (as a doctor)? Isn't your job to help sick people regardless of sexual orientation (or any other demographic, for that matter)? The government punished your church group? By doing what, exactly? You're helplessly watching public schools teach your child that gay marriage is 'okay'? Shouldn't you, as a parent (and a human being), be teaching your child love rather than hate and alienation? The advocates of same-sex marriage want to change the way you live? How? Why? You will have no choice? That's it? To what are you referring? You have a coalition coming together "in love" to protect hate and discrimination? Wow.

These people say absolutely nothing. Do you know why? Because there is no longer any reason to deny same-sex marriage rights. The only reason is that it goes against a religious belief. The separation of church and state is fundamental, and in the U.S. Constitution. It's called the establishment clause. Look it up.

Update: Slog posted some more news pertaining to this here and here. Watch the MSNBC debate between Maggie Gallagher (President of the National Organization for Marriage) and Joe Solmonese (President of the Human Rights Campaign):
