Miss Universe Org. Declares War Over Anti-Gay Ad

5/5/2009 3:44 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Miss Universe Organization just told us they've fired off a cease and desist letter to the National Organization for Marriage -- after NOM used footage from the Miss USA 2009 pageant in an anti-gay marriage commercial.

The commercial -- which is currently still playing on NOM's website -- uses Carrie Prejean's pageant response to the gay marriage question as a selling point for the ad.

This doesn't mean the MUO is taking sides on the issue -- just saying NOM can't use the copyrighted material to promote their agenda.

GAY people ALREADY have Civil Unions--thats fine by me---They can do and live anyway they please-BUT-just dont call it Marriage--- Thats for a man and a women--- If they get the Law they want--that is, Calling a union between 2 men or 2 women a "MARRIAGE", Thats ridiculous!!!! Then, what follows in law next??? A man can marry his Sheep or Rabbit, A women can marry a man AND a WOMEN? A threesome can get married - A brother and a sister? It can go on and on-

#19 DUH (good name, btw). We call her a hypocrite because, like many bible-thumpers, she picks and chooses which of the rules should apply and which shouldn't as is convenient to her life. What about the body being a temple? How is it OK that she carved up hers so she could have big titties? What about only sharing your nakedness with your betrothed? My biggest problem, however, isn't with her. She's just another sheep blindly following and believing what her mommy and daddy told her. The issue I have is the right-leaning morons that jumped on her bandwagon and made her their covergirl without having a clue as to what kind of person she really is. Kind of like when the abstinence brigade jumped on Palin's wagon before they found out she couldn't even convince her own daughter to use BIRTH CONTROL. So, now, we have one more young girl raising another baby, probably on her way to public assitance. Yeah, that's the ticket!

Comment number 8 by SO TRUE is so right, why all this controverse? she said her opinion, was sincere, why crucified her? all the answers in this beauty contests are about love, world peace, poverty, ......all of the participants are always trying to pleased everyone by saying lies about what they really think, She just said is not in agreement, is not like she is going to kill anyone or start a battle against gay marriage. I think every one has the right to love and be loved, I agree with gay marriage but I don't think she is bad for not think like I do.

Barry would you be cool with someone in the same situation saying that they don't believe that blacks should be allowed to own land, or that women shouldn't be allowed to vote? Would you then be saying , oh well it's just thier 'belief' no harm there? Yes we have freedom of speech but if you are going to go on national TV and say stupid things then you best be prepared for the backlash that might come from those who did take offense to your ocmments.

I think there should be constitutional amendent to ban gays from marrying or forming mutual unions.

This is my favorite story ever simply because I was emailing back and forth with Maggie Gallagher around the time the audition tapes for their first ad were leaked, and she was talking about how immoral gay rights groups were for "stealing" their copyrighted material. Then they turn around and do the same thing. Hypocrisy is so enraging, yet so satisfying at the same time.

Suck On This    

These folks say they're born that way and I believe that is true but they're birth defect in no way is reason for them to be allowed to marry someone of the same sex.

A male homosexuals' birth defect causes his thought processes to be so screwed up that they see another mans anus to be sexually exciting. Being hard wired hetero it makes my skin crawl at the thought.

What we need in this country is a prenatal test for woman that would detect this birth defect and allow mothers to bypass the sadness that it's birth would bring about. DNA manipulation is in our future. Lets hope it comes quickly!

the poor girl is not particularly bright... she's a beauty queen for heaven's sake ! .. and she has allowed herself to be exploited by this NOM group which is the creation of longtime anti-gay bigot, maggie gallagher. this has nothing to do with the response to the question.. copyrighted material is copyrighted material. this group has no right to use it without permission.

The loony left is the new NAZI's. It is amazing how they turn into rabid pitbulls if someone does not bow to their beliefs.
