Last night Stephen Colbert proclaimed his utter hatred for gay marriage and aired his own ad to support for NOM (the National Organization for Marriage). NOM released a Web ad last week that portrays a "gay storm" coming to wipe out Christian values. As Colbert said, "It is like watching the 700 Club and the Weather Channel at the same time."
As a result of the recent wins for gay marriage in Vermont and Iowa, Stephen got riled up, but it wasn't til Governor David Paterson introduced gay marriage legislation here in Stephen's home state of New York that he took action. He made his own gay marriage storm ad because as Stephen says, "New York can't handle a flood of gay marriage. As it is it's impossible to get a wedding announcement in the 'Times.' I had to release Carbon Monoxide into an apartment building then work the wedding into the police interview."
