The 10 Best Responses to the ‘Gathering Storm’


It may have been out for a few weeks now, but the Internets can’t get enough of the National Organization for Marriage’s hilarious “Gathering Storm” ad. If the measure of an epic fail is how quickly and widely it’s parodied on YouTube, then Maggie Gallagher and the tools at NOM may have won the prize. In a way, we’re thankful to NOM for blatantly showing the nation how ludicrous the arguments against gay marriage are. Seriously, the ad may just greatest thing ever created for LGBT rights. And while the spot is one big can of stormy crazy, we’re pretty impressed by how many of you have taken it upon yourselves to improve the ad. Here our are 10 favorite NOM responses. Put on your galoshes, folks, there’s a storm coming.
