Marriage Ads Launch In Utah

Via the Mormon Church-owned Deseret News:

Two days before arguments over Utah’s definition of marriage begin in a federal appeals court, a same-sex marriage advocacy group will launch a television ad campaign featuring a longtime married heterosexual couple and a familiar face. The 30-second spots, sponsored by Utah Unites for Marriage, emphasize marriage as legal and civil right and say that no church or faith would be required to perform weddings for same-sex couples. The ads will begin to air Tuesday. One of the ads features William and Marge Bradshaw, who say they met while serving missions for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. They are the parents of five children, including a gay son, and 18 grandchildren. “All gay and lesbian people deserve to have the rights and the privileges that we’ve had,” Marge Bradshaw says.
