While the majority of the country is rejoicing in Friday’s landmark SCOTUS ruling on marriage equality, there are still a bunch of folks who remain strongly in opposition. Some of whom include the religious organization “Catholic Vote,” who decided to make a video to remind us.

Simply titled “Not Alone,” the video–shot in black and white for dramatic effect–features a cast of Catholic heteros who are VERY, VERY passionate about their opinion that marriage is between a man and a woman.

So passionate, in fact, that a few begin to shed tears. When they’re not getting emotional, they’re exuding a chilling placidity that feels straight out of Brave New World.

The manipulative video follows the same format as pro-gay PSA’s of the past so well, that when the “twist” comes (that they’re all anti-gay), it’s legitimately shocking.

With each donning the truest example of “shit-eating grin,” these martyrs discuss their fear of being oppressed by society for their belief, concerned that they won’t be “welcome” in some places.

Some “highlights”:

“I am a little bit nervous about people hearing that I am this way.”

(*Lets out small laugh*) “I would say I am different.”

“It’s pretty scary, you know. You wonder, how many people I can truly, honestly be open with.”

“I’ve tried to change this before, but, it’s too important to me.”

“At the end of the day, we shouldn’t be ashamed of how we really feel. So, you know, be you.”

“No one should be suppressed.”

“I have friends who are gay… I don’t fear them!”

“I mean… I love my friends… several of them happen to be gay.” (Translation: “I love my gay friends, I just don’t think they should be happy.”)

“The best way to break down all these barriers… sorry (*pauses to wipe tear*)… is too just get to know people one-on-one.”

Then, the climax, with such theatrics on a level not even good enough for a high school health class skit about not doing drugs…


The orchestra swells, swells, SWELLS, AAAAAAAAAAAAND….

…. “You’re not alone… you’re NOT alone. You’re. Not. Alone.”
