Video: We'd actually respect them more if this was their stance

by Jeremy Hooper

It's funny because it's true. It's sad for the same reason:

The Defenders (2009)

Your thoughts

What's really sad is that the very people we'd like to see become more enlightened never would be. When you or I look at the gay couples at the end of this clip, we see something sweet and beautiful in those images. When they look at them, the become SHOCKED! OUTRAGED!

That's a great ad...let's hope something like it shows up in the upcoming fight to reverse Proposition 8.

I think this is what the Anti-H8 campaign was missing last year: human faces. Seriously, this was ten times as poignant as the other ads that ran.

I loved it, but maybe a little too much. I woke the hubby to see it. Now he'll probably grumble at me the rest of the day. I lied and told him I actually woke him to take a pill.

Great ad - not sure I agree about including the threeway marriage though: it's kind of making the other side's point for them.
