Non-Married Lifestyles

An odd choice of banner ad appeared along this post at AotP.

The Timothy PlanĀ® is a family of mutual funds offering individuals, like yourself, a biblical choice when it comes to investing. If you are concerned with the moral issues (abortion, pornography, anti-family entertainment, non-married lifestyles, alcohol, tobacco and gambling) that are destroying children and families you have come to the right place.

"Non-married lifestyles" is an interesting phrase, in the same way a slap to the face tends to spark interest. Deny gay couples access to marriage and then complain about their single lifestyle. It's a win-win for those who prefer the biblical choice and what passes for "moral issues" these days.

Also note how the banner ad attracts the salacious reader with the implication of porn - a prominent placement of "X-Rated Investment" relative to the "G-Rated Choice." I've seen the same bush league psyche-out stuff used on the The O'Reilly Factor. Complain about the media's use of sexual imagery to sell products by... using sexual imagery to sell an anti-sex product. Laughable.
