NJ Married Couple’s Pre-Wedding Photo Used To Blast Marriage Equality

promoted by Rosi

Apparently the "conservative" bigots at the "nonprofit" group Public Advocate of the United States think that two men kissing is so icky that a photo of it mailed to Colorado voters will turn the tide against marriage equality supporting Republican State Senator Jean White. Here’s the mailer:

 

One little, itsy bitsy problem here: that's an actual couple's photo that the idiots at public advocate had no rights to. And they’re getting sued.

Thomas Privitere and Brian  Edwards of Montclair, New Jersey, had no idea that the image, which was  taken shortly before their 2010 wedding, was being used for political  purposes until a friend spotted it in the Daily News a day  after the primary. The pair, along with their photographer, are suing  the group for copyright infringement and misappropriating their  likeness.    

“We are heartbroken that our images may have been seen by gay and  lesbian youth in Colorado and were left feeling ashamed of their sexual  orientation because of it,” Privitere said. “We hope that this group is  held accountable for its reprehensible and hateful anti-gay attacks.”

 

The PAoUS folks are not only stupid, they’re liable.

    I saw this picture and had no choice but to divorce my wife! When will someone stand up and “defend” marriage!

    I hope the happy couple takes those bigots for everything they’ve got.
