A same-sex couple marry in the Men's Wearhouse advert that has upset One Million Moms

The latest advert to trigger right-wing, evangelical Christian protest group One Million Moms comes courtesy of Men’s Wearhouse.

The men’s clothing retailer sells a wide range of suits, some of which are perfect for weddings.

One of its recent adverts highlights its wedding attire. We think it’s worth a share because not only does it feature a collection of handsome and hunky grooms, but it includes a same-sex couple.

“Homosexuality is unnatural”

It certainly puts Men’s Wearhouse on our radar as a suit supplier.

However, the folk at One Million Moms felt differently. They have urged supporters to sign a petition to register their disgust. It said it particularly objected to the advert aiming at 6pm when children might see it.

“Men’s Wearhouse should be ashamed of attempting to normalize sin by featuring two gay men getting married in their 2023 ‘Love the way you look on your big day’ commercial,” the group fumed in a message on its website.

“It includes two men dressed in wedding attire, hand in hand after their ceremony, and emphasizes during the ad, ‘And we mean everybody.’

“Obviously, this ‘Love the way you look’ ad promotes same-sex marriage to please a small percentage of customers while pushing away conservative customers. Not to mention, there is also a female dressed in a groomsman’s suit during this commercial.

“Even though homosexuality is unnatural, this advertisement is pushing the LGBTQ agenda. Men’s Wearhouse is using public airwaves to subject families to decadent morals and values while belittling the sanctity of marriage.”

This is not the first time One Million Moms have had a meltdown over same-sex weddings on screen. At the start of the year it called for a boycott of TurboTax after the tax experts included a fleeting glimpse of two men marrying in a commercial.

A 2016 advert by jeweler Zales, featuring two women marrying, also stirred the Christian group’s ire.
