NEW YORK: NOM Relaunches Debunked Lie-Filled Ad From 2009

In New York state NOM has begun re-airing the same lie-filled ad that it ran in 2009, when it was debunked by the fact-finding site Politifact. Via Holy Bullies, here's Politifact's assessment:
The National Organization for Marriage mailing says that Massachusetts public schools teach kindergartners about gay marriage. The wording, including the present tense verb, gives the impression this is happening now, in many schools. But the group’s only evidence is two incidents five years ago. It’s possible that somewhere, in one of the 351 cities and towns in Massachusetts, other kindergartners have been taught about same-sex marriage. But NOM couldn’t cite any other examples. We find its statement False.
