Anti-gay group attacks Ron Paul on marriage


The National Organization for Marriage is attacking presidential hopeful Ron Paul in a television ad in Iowa. The commercial says Paul is “wrong on marriage.”

Paul, who has come under fire for decades’ old newsletters that contain anti-black, anti-semitic and anti-gay statements, is rising in the polls leading up to next week’s caucuses.

The NOM add seeks to sway voters to more traditional right-wing candidates and away from the libertarian Paul.

The 38-second commercial states that “all the major presidential candidates have pledged to preserve traditional marriage,” except Ron Paul.

The commercial says he is not a conservative but rather a radical who would destroy traditional marriage.
