Anti-gay marriage ads appear on D.C. transit

"A new group called “Stand For Marriage DC” has popped up now that the D.C. city council has passed and the mayor signed into law same-sex marriage," reports DallasVoice. The organization has placed anti-same-sex advertising on D.C. Metro. Stand For Marriage DC wants to put marriage equality up for a vote. The group is a thinly veiled version of National Organization for Marriage that successfully defeated same-sex marriage in California and Maine. Full Equality Now DC, a Washington-based LGBT rights group, wants the ads removed on the grounds that they insult gays and lesbians and violate Metro’s nondiscrimination policies.
