NOM Steals Picture of Lesbian Couple

World, take note: you do not want to be on Kerri Carder-McCoy’s bad side, because she is not putting up with any of your shit.

You may remember, back in 2008, when Kerri and her wife Erin made headlines right before the vote on Prop 8. When they got married at San Francisco City Hall, Erin’s first-grade class greeted her at the door to throw rose petals. It was all done with parental permission, of course, but the anti-gays latched onto the event as proof that schools would “teach gay marriage.”

That touched off a nightmare for Kerri and Erin, as their faces and the faces of the kids were appropriated and re-used by anti-gay groups. Two and a half years later, it’s still going on: NOM’s anti-marriage ad in New York features a flash frame of Kerri and Erin.

    What they did was legal…. The students attended with parental permission.. They were there not to teach but to celebrate.. NOM should be sued. And the ladys should collect. The stories no are telling are iies.
