Are they *REALLY* comparing planned anti-gay protest to 1963 march on Washington?!

I can't 100% place the image, but based on crowd size and geography, I'm pretty sure that the graphic in this promotion for NOM's upcoming "marriage marriage" against equality

…is an image from 1963's historic march featuring Dr. King's legendary "I Have A Dream" speech. It seems to be a cropped variation of this widely distributed pic:

I mean, really? They are seriously going to go there? Because if they are planning on equating their lil' march against civil marriage rights for certain kinds of Americans with the past (and ongoing) struggle for racial equality, then they can forget ever again accusing us of "hijacking the Civil Rights Movement." They will have nipped that one in the bud for all time. Even people somewhat supportive of their cause will find this comparison to be distasteful, at best.
