The television ad shows snow-dusted mountains with wind-swept pines, an American flag, downtown Cody, pickups and a statue of a rifle-toting man on horseback.

Then the camera focuses on a well-known Wyoming politician, former U.S. Sen. Alan Simpson.

“I’m a Republican and the party’s basic core is government out of your life and the right to be left alone,” Simpson says to the camera. “Whether you’re gay or lesbian or straight, if you love someone and you want to marry them, marry them.”

The 30-second message is clear: Western values can align with same-sex marriage. The ad, paid for by New York-based Freedom to Marry, will play on local television in Wyoming, Colorado and Utah and national cable networks such as CNN, Fox News and MSNBC, said Evan Wolfson, founder and president of Freedom to Marry.

On Thursday, the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals will hear a same-sex marriage case from Utah. A Salt Lake City judge ruled the state's gay marriage ban was unconstitutional. Wyoming and Colorado are also part of the 10th Circuit, and depending on how broadly the Denver-based appeals court rules, the two states could also be affected by the decision, Wolfson said.

Simpson and a handful of state Republican lawmakers recently joined with 16 other Western politicians to sign a friend-of-the-court brief in favor of gay marriage.

“We want to continue the momentum and underscore the continued bipartisan support, the strong values and freedom of dignity and respect, that are making the case for the freedom to marry,” Wolfson said.

The gay marriage debate began in politically liberal or moderate states. It has now moved to conservative states like Wyoming. Polls show an increasing number of Westerners support same-sex marriage, Wolfson said.

“That’s because people have had the time to talk and think it through,” he said. “They know gay people in their community.”

The ad was shot last week, Wolfson said.

During the commercial, a black-and-white picture appears. It shows a young Simpson with his wife, Ann, who is wearing a dress and veil. In June, they’ll celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary.

“I’ve had a wonderful married life,” Simpson said. “Why shouldn’t somebody else have the joy of marriage? Live and let live. It’s very simple.”

Jeran Artery, chairman of Wyoming Equality, which is leading a gay marriage campaign called Wyoming Unites for Marriage, said Simpson provides credibility to the ad locally and across the country.

“I think it can also send a message across the country, if Wyoming is ready for this, why wouldn’t the rest of the country be ready for this?” he said.

Simpson, during an interview from his Cody home, said Freedom to Marry asked him to do the advertisement. He agreed because he felt strongly about the issue.

“We’re all God’s children,” he said. “We’re all human beings.”

You just gotta love Al. I wish more people in government would speak their mind and true beliefs like he has always done.

If a guy is typically in hot water from the left AND right he's probably doing something right.

I wonder if I'll live to see the day when a liberal leaning person of Al Simpsons stature will call their own out on the carpet as Al is doing with the Republicans?

I also wonder if any of the liberal leaning trib towers will be able to swallow their pride and give this man some well deserved credit? How about those who have spoken out personally albeit anonymously here on trib town?

You might throw up a little in your mouth, but depending on what you had for dinner it's not too bad....

The ole fud is still at it. Those loudly promoting the 'gay' lifestyple, and demanding total acceptance of their politically correct agenda, insist their actions won't affect society as a whole and won't have negative consequences. How many of you believe that baloney? The question is not about whether counterfeit "marriage" will affect us; it's actually about the extent to which it will harm and negatively impact everyone. Bryan Fischer noted, "Every single advance of the homosexual agenda comes at the expense of religious liberty. Americans want to believe otherwise, that sodomy and religious liberty can coexist, but they cannot. Everywhere Big Gay gains ground, Christ is forced into retreat." This IS the battle of our day!

Pogo, please tell us how gay marriage will affect you, personally? Will your wife lose her appeal? Will gay married neighbors have you questioning your heterosexual lifestyle?

Those same, exact, verbatim arguments were used to fight against equality for blacks in the mid-20th century. It's a tired, has-been argument as invalid today as it was then. Here's what you would have sounded like (or maybe did) in the 50's:

Please don't paraphrase some nonsense and imply that the Pope supports gay marriage. He does not.

The Pope said this: “On Heaven and Earth”, same-sex 'marriage' is a weakening of the institution of marriage, an institution that has existed for thousands of years and is “forged according to nature and anthropology.”

Al and you apparently do not understand the above statement so I won't waste any more time on either of you.

Some of us believe that marriage is holy and sanctioned by God through the Church.

James Madison

The problem with progressive RINO Al Simpson is that his words are dripping with hypocrisy.

He is on a constant campaign to get the Circuit Courts involved, and a coalition of groups from 16 States to promote a State-Government sanctioned and regulated marriage for the LGBT Community. He wants government regulating and sanctioning Gay marriage.

This is a complete contradiction to "government getting out of our lives."

Simpson and many Republicans, and Democrats, support marriage being regulated and sanctioned by State governments, let's not kid ourselves.

True limited government and freedom lovers would promote getting all government out of our bedrooms and churches, and let private organizations, religious, agnostic, spiritual groups, define and sanction marriages.

StupidCitizen

"This is a complete contradiction to "government getting out of our lives."

Nonsense, it's exactly the opposite. By actively banning gay marriage, and regulating marriage, government is actually controlling our lives. It is in our bedrooms. You know, it wasn't all that long ago that marrying someone of a different race was illegal in much of the country. Do you regret that change, as well?

James Madison
James Madison

That is the strawman argument you made up Stupid Citizen.

Government should not be sanctioning any marriage, period.

In a free society change occurs over time without need of government regulations and use of force. You can look at every social issue over history and the people are the major influencing factor in creating change.

Freedom of speech and religious expression before constitution-hating lawyers stepped in would have protected marriage. Unfortunately, big government progressives, leftists, and right-wing fascists have destroyed the constitution since the 1800s.

StupidCitizen
StupidCitizen

Nonsense on all counts. Marriage is a legal partnership, not a religious right. Religion is, in fact, optional. So, by wanting government out of marriage, are you saying that nonreligious people should be forbade from getting married, as well?

The "government regulations" you so quickly deride are exactly what are responsible preventing gay marriage. It's the government entering into our personal lives, which is what you hate. That makes you a big government supporter. Why is that so hard for you people to understand?

As far as you assertion about social change, you are in serious need of history lessons. Very often, social change is thrust upon an unwilling populace. Slavery was abolished against the wills of many local majorities, as were the subsequent Jim Crow laws. You know, the good ol' days.

Instead of emotional generalizations, why don't you tell us all how the constitution has been destroyed. Please be specific. You made the claim, now be a big boy and back it up

As a Republican like Al, who believes in true Republican values of thrift, hard work, liberty, and freedom for all, I applaud Al's stance.

I think people are starting to see through the contradictions of those who claim to be small-government Republicans, but yet have voted over the years to reduce our rights and enable our government to spy on us, as well as supported a bloated police arm that arrests people for growing a plant that's been on this Earth for millions of years and prohibits a group of citizens from marriage.

Those of us who are true Republicans, who believe in being fiscally conservative and liberty for all, need to take our party back from the wild-spending, Big-Brother-supporting people who are Republican in name only.

There is no good reason to deny we must keep evolving until an adult, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, monogamy, or polyamory is free to share love, sex, residence, and marriage (or any of those without the others) with any & all consenting adults, without prosecution, bullying, or discrimination. The limited same-gender freedom to marry is a great step, but it is not full marriage equality. Stand up for every adult's right to marry any consenting adult(s). Get on the right side of history!

It will affect every person in this country. And you know it. I, and several others, have spelled it out for you, and many others. The fact that you either cannot, or will not, listen to reason and fact is no one's fault but your own.

If homosexual marriage becomes law, the freedom of religion that citizens now will without a trace. Notice I said freedom of, not freedom from. People like stupid enjoy trying to tell half truths, as well as out and out lies.

In CA, students in k~ 12 can choose to use the opposite sex restroom and locker rooms, if they feel that they want to be a member of the opposite sex. And, the kicker is this: They don't have to be undergoing any kind of therapy or treatment, all they have to do is say that they feel like a member of the opposite sex. What will you say to your daughter or granddaughter when she comes home, in tears, because there was a boy in her locker room, shower, or bathroom?

In MA, the glsen (gay lesbian straight education network, although straight has nothing to do with it) has rewritten the lesson plans for students k-12 for teachers to use in their classrooms. What's worse, is that there's NO parental ability to object. Why? Because in MA, homosexual marriage is LEGAL.

In Canada, a minister is being sued because he refused to marry 2 homosexual men. I know, I know, that's in Canada. However, if you think that people like stupid wouldn't use people like Bert, of the aclu, to sue ministers, preachers, and rabbis, then your a fool.

So, stupid, do you get it this time, or do I need to draw it out for you in crayon, like usual? Not to mention the lunacy that already exists. If someone murders a homosexual, it's a hate crime. If someone murders any other member of society, it's simply just murder, with no hate crime enhancement. Why is it more hateful if someone kills a homosexual, vs another member of society??

Not that long ago, homosexuality was seen as a mental illness. For no reason other than the whining and crying pressure of a very small, yet vocal number of homosexuals, it was removed. The removal of homosexuality from the DSM was NOT based on ANY scientific facts, tests, or studies. So why was it removed?

whatever
whatever

Idra, your arguments are patently absurd. Are you honestly suggesting that these mostly hypothetical cases you are citing can in any measure compare to the decades of persecution, humiliation, marginalization, ridicule, isolation, discrimination,verbal and physical harassment and sometimes murder that gays have suffered at the hands of sanctimonious Christians and so-called "conservatives"? Do you actually believe that Christians are the victims, the persecuted ones? You make me laugh.
Can you cite an actual case of a child that has been irreparably harmed by these policies you describe in MA and CA? Because I can cite thousands upon thousands of cases of homosexuals who have been harmed by continuing the discriminatory policies you advocate for.
Hate crime legislation has advanced because it gives prosecutors more tools to use in cases where hate for whatever reason is clearly a motive. These laws have come to pass not just because of gay advocacy but by all minorities that have suffered simply by being in the minority.
As for your last question I bet you can figure that one out for yourself Idra. Why was homosexuality in the DSM in the first place?

And should something not go their way, then here come the names, innuendos and falsehoods, with little regard towards others.

Idra . . . why do you make this so easy? You just keep repeating the same lame, overly-exaggerated bigoted arguments over and over, again like a broken record. Doesn't your retirement home have shuffleboard or checkers you could play, instead of using that new-fangled computer?

Your hate crime analogy is, as usual, poorly thought out and poorly executed. It's only a hate crime if the person were murdered because they were gay. It's also a hate crime to murder a white person solely because they are white. So, as you can see, there is no difference. No special treatment. Should I draw it in crayon for you?

Your mental illness argument is even more ridiculous. Homosexuality was removed from the DSM almost 50 years ago after intensive and critical review of the "research" which put on the DSM, as well as a large amount of subsequent research. The overwhelming majority of health care professionals agree it is not a mental illness. Again, I have proven another of your irrational statements to be wrong.

And, you have never answered one of my most pertinent questions. Do you believe that Wyoming should reintroduce slavery? The bible and many of the founding fathers endorsed slavery. You have stated both in your opposition to gay marriage, so where do you stand on slavery?

Oops, It's after 7:00, which is pretty close to your bedtime. I'll wait until tomorrow for your answer.

whatever, the line has been drawn and you're now trying to move it. Utah passed a law, voted by the people and reversed by an Obama appointed judge.

jonebgood, so you lost the first argument, now you're changing the subject. FYI it's not me moving the line, the line is disintegrating because the laws you cite are being deemed unconstitutional. The judge you refer to was indeed appointed by Obama, and heartily endorsed by Mike Lee and Orrin Hatch, two of the most conservative senators in Congress. The judge himself is a registered republican. There is nothing republican or democrat about discrimination. Bigots and homophobes like you are the true disgrace to Wyoming

Attn jonebgood, I'm throwing caution in the "political; wind" these days as, Simpson may be showing signs of Alzheimer's disease. Can't remember what he stood for and whom [Ronnie Reagan] was to inspired him, as the shame of this nation is rising.

StupidCitizen

As I have proven before, Kool Kat, you have no freaking clue about Ronald Reagan and what he stood for. If he were alive today you would be calling him a RINO and a liberal. Nancy Reagan has already set the record straight and said her husband would have hated this new conservatism (that means you). His daughter, Patti Davis, recently publicly stated that he would have agreed with gay marriage. Both facts are easy to find, but you won't look, will you?

So, to recap, Reagan would have been for gay marriage. What have you got to say now?

Wow- a bunch of closed minded people here, and may I say some sound rather stupid. Pedophiles are not automatically Homosexuals. Yes, it hits media quite hard, and it is wrong, the pedophilia, that is. Children should be protected from predators 110% no argument. But this whole Homosexual = Pedophiles is absurd!!

I hope one day you realize that everyone is human and if a human wants to marry another... why can't they? Oh, because your closed mind said so? Or because the Bible said so? Tell me, if the Bible said so, and that’s the only reason you argue against marriage equality, then how true to the Christian faith are you in other aspects of do's and don'ts of the Bible? or is it pick and choose, you know, just being another hypocrite?? Just curious. What about “love one another?” or is it just love whoever you feel is ok? Pickin’ and choosin’ again aren’t we?

Now thinking outside the box, scary I know, what if your child, niece, nephew, brother, aunt, uncle etc. were gay, and lived a lie because of your ignorance. One day it would come out, and it would hurt so many people knowing they lived a lie, because they were too scared to. Even if they did “come out”, would you forbid them to following their hearts to wanting to marry the person they love and have same luxuries as straight married people?
Now the non-sense of Human marrying animal...come on really? Does that even belong in this argument?

Humans are humans, and since a majority seem to be bible thumpers and love the constitution- what about Declaration of Independence? “Life, Liberty and pursuit of happiness.”

I am not a bible thumper, I am not atheist, I am a citizen wanting America to step up and face the facts, everyone is created equal, and that EVERYONE has the opportunity to be happy.

How will this affect you personally? It won’t. What if your neighbor or best friend told you they were gay? Would you stop being their friend? Demand they move out? Nothing changes; they are the exact same people they were before. I hope someday, you will find love in your heart for all, not just what you think is right inside your perfect existence that things aren’t always black and white. No one is born racist, or with hate in their hearts.

Just think everything that once was thought “unimaginable” is imaginable (Woman can vote, Segregation is gone, Holcaust is over, ETC). One day, marriage equality will be too. Be careful who you hate, or protest against…they could be closer than you think. The Nurse/Doctor/X-Ray Tech/ Law Enforcement Officer/ Firefighter/ EMT or Paramedic/ Newspaper Reporter/ Food Server/ 911 Operator/ Bank Teller/ Bartender/ Real Estate Agent/ Cell Phone Dealer/ etc. Could be Gay, and again, tell me…how is it affecting you personally? Seriously?

Surely you are aware that similar laws banning inter-racial marriage have been found to be unconstitutional?

To all the people against gay marriage: If gay marriage is as bad as you say it is, why not stand aside and let it pass and wait for the what you see as inevitable downsides to manifest themselves? That way, you can stand back and say "see I told you so"? After that, maybe you'll have support for repeal.

Or perhaps, deep down, you're worried that gay marriage isn't the boogeyman you made it out to be.

When marriage for all is the law of the land. Life will go on. And the vast majority of men will continue to be attracted to women. And the vast majority of women will continue to be attracted to men. And the small percentage of people who are gay will have the right to liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Attn propertyrights4life, I don't believe anyone has said they were against "same sex marriage" in other states, as a state's right issue. The issue is, changing Wyoming's constitutional law to fit the special interest needs. One heck of a difference.
So you see, the "real boogeyman" [as you say] is the manipulation of laws and not the actual will of the people. As you claim Wyoming can repeal laws as that - we saw what happened in Utah and California.
The Courts filled with judicial activists over ruled repealed laws - once established - thus choking off the will of the people is how they see their sovereign will upheld. Your cunning and manipulative comment serves on self-seeking special interest as yourself and your ilk.
The Wyoming voter and tax payer, will not buy into manipulative dares as yours, and will not allow our laws to be questioned by special interests. As your ilk has already served notice they are fighting "Wyoming's will" in marriage definition.
The Amendment X of our Bill of Rights is the only foothold Wyoming has to defend its own laws from special interests, like you.

Al Simpson is either a liar (which is very likly since he's a politician) or he wants back in the limelight (highly probable) or both. This is why Republicans despise their politicians. They are slimy, spineless people who believe in NOTHING except self-promotion. May the Rebplican part die soon--it can't be fast enough.

As for the LIE Al tells, the desire to get government out of our lives followed by the desire to ADD more people entering into a government contract, well, that says everything we need to know. A complete liar.

Also, since Al is so in love with government and their contracts, I fully expect to see him pushing for polygamy legalization in Wyoming and the US. If there is no commerial to that effect soon, we know he's a liar and a hypocrite. My bet is to liar and hypocrite.
