Stephen Colbert Parodies Nom's Anti-Gay Marriage Ad
Stephen Colbert's politically conservative alter ego came out against gay marriage during last night's installment of The Colbert Report on Comedy Central, delivering a wonderfully ridiculous rant about the dangers of same-sex marriage before premiering his own anti-gay marriage video parodying the ad recently released by NOM (the National Organization for Marriage).

|The Colbert Coalition's Anti-Gay Marriage Ad|
That NOM ad was ripe for parody, by the way. You've seen it, right? It's the one with the people standing in front of dark clouds, warning of an approaching "storm" brought on by gay marriage and announcing the formation of "a rainbow coalition of people of every creed and color coming together in love to protect marriage."
Honestly, the ad is so bad that you have to wonder if whoever put it together was secretly working against NOM. Seriously, I wouldn't be surprised to find out that the director was gay!
For his part, Colbert praised NOM for fighting to keep "arma-gay-don" at bay and declared his love for their ad, noting, "It is like watching The 700 Club and The Weather Channel at the same time."
I love it when one of the actors makes the claim, "If all fifty states approve gay marriage, straight marriage becomes illegal." What do you think of Colbert's ad?
