National Gay and Lesbian Task Force slams deceptive television ad from the National Organization for Marriage
Director of Communications
WASHINGTON, April 8 — The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force responded today to the launch of a deceptive and false television ad ("A Gathering Storm") produced by the National Organization for Marriage that intends to spread lies about marriage equality for same-sex couples.
Statement by Rea Carey, Executive Director
National Gay and Lesbian Task Force
"Everything about this television ad is phony — from the actors portraying 'real people' to the malicious, deceitful lies coming out of their mouths to the ridiculous claim they represent a 'rainbow coalition.' This commercial clearly is a sign of desperation. The right wing is scrambling to gain its footing in the face of a shifting landscape and a flurry of victories for equality; new landscape, but same old scare tactics. We believe that fair-minded people are fed up with this divisiveness and will not fall prey to these fear-mongering tactics."
