That's not the case, according to Good As You's Jeremy Hooper, who first noticed that NOM's newest anti-marriage equality ad featured a song by Colorado musician Katie Herzig.
So Hooper tweeted at Herzig, asking if she supports marriage equality. Herzig wrote back simply, "I do."
When Hooper informed Herzig about the use of her song in the antigay video, the musician was incensed.
"Wow, that is not something I approved," Herzig tweeted. "Working on getting it taken down. I definitely support marriage equality."
Today, NOM's video no longer appears on YouTube, displaying instead a black screen that reads "This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Katie Herzig."
Here's the Twitter conversation between Hooper and Herzig:
