Kentucky church launches anti-gay marriage ad campaign

Kentucky's largest church is launching an advertising campaign proclaiming the union of one man and one woman as "God's plan for marriage." The ads come as Kentucky voters prepare to decide on a proposed constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriages. Southeast Christian Church in Jefferson County plans to run display ads in newspapers, on billboards, and on the sides of buses. It also is starting to run commercials on radio and television stations and at movie theaters. "Our goal is to represent the biblical truth of marriage to our community that affirms marriage at a time when the traditional definition of marriage is under attack," said Bob Russell, the church's senior minister.

My boyfriend and I both go to Southeast Christian and we're both gay. Several other gay friends of mine either go there or attend sparatically. The leadership is very conservative but the congregation itself is more diverse than you'd think. Needless to say though, any money we give to the church is earmarked for specific ministries we know to be effective.
