A conservative Christian group in West Virginia is likening gay marriage supporters to snipers in campaign to enact a constitutional amendment banning marriage equality.

A Christian conservative group in West Virginia is likening gay marriage supporters to snipers targeting "traditional" families in a new video campaign to enact a constitutional amendment banning marriage equality.

The Family Policy Council of West Virginia is urging legislators to allow a ballot measure for their proposed amendment, according to WHSV News in Charleston.

The video says that marriage equality would threaten churches' livelihood, thereby preventing them from offering services like adoption, medical care, and religious schools.

The potential for a West Virginian couple to marry in another state where the right is extended to gay and lesbian couples would lead West Virginians into "legal chaos," the ad's narrator warns. The video includes a family blowing bubbles together in the cross hairs of a rifle, driving home the point of heterosexual families being targeted.

"A weekend trip to San Francisco for a West Virginia same-sex couple plus a pro bono [American Civil Liberties Union] attorney could easily become a nightmare for marriage in West Virginia," the video says. (Michelle Garcia, Advocate.com)
