Ad - Obama will force doctors to allow gays to 'buy' babies

We are officially in the silly season of the 2012 election as evidenced by this ad which, according to the Huffington Post, ran in a number of newspapers on Sunday, including The Sarasota Herald-Tribune:

All of these claims are false, but I especially get a kick out of the claim that Obama will "force doctors to assist homosexuals in buying surrogate babies."

Not only does it dehumanize us, but it makes us look like we are treating babies like turkeys in a Thanksgiving dinner.

The ad is run by an organization called GINGPAC.org

From its webpage, GINGPAC stands for Government is Not God and it claims to be a political action committee for social conservatives. Its chairman is William J. Murray. Supposedly Murray is the son of Madalyn Murray O'Hair, the late atheist whose lawsuit in front of the Supreme Court led to the eradication of required prayer in public schools.

But that's not the most interesting thing I found out about Murray. Apparently GINGPAC is only one of the organization he leads. There is also the Religious Freedom Coalition and We The People Nation. All three groups claim that their desires are to bring America back to its supposed "Judeo-Christian" heritage.

Murray asks for "contributions" through GINGPAC and the Religious Freedom Coalition (surprise, surprise!) In addition, he also has a youtube channel.

So what we are talking about here is a one-man operation causing all sorts of chaos in the name of God.

And I thought the Catholic League and William Donohue was bad.

But to be fair, I don't think Donohue ever made a move to physically assault someone. In spite of all Murray says about "Godly values," he has a good left hook as this video from last year demonstrates:

The Tampa Bay Times contains a full list of the newspapers where Murray's ad ran. Also, according to the Times, some people are highly angry at the ad, so angry in fact that they intend to protest.

Holy Tacos! Does anyone actually buy their shit? I mean, that is seriously over the top even by their standards.

But I seriously agree about their "Dehumanization" efforts. Its frightening.
