AFA’s Video Introduced in Prop 8 Case

Today, the lawyers challenging California’s Proposition 8 rested their case after showing a six-minute video of Prop 8 supporters claiming marriage equality would lead to polygamy and bestiality, including one that was produced by the American Family Association.

The video is now gone, but AFA touted it as instrumental in helping pass Prop 8:

In response to Proposition 8, the California referendum that would amend the state’s constitution to protect marriage as being only between a man and a woman, AFA produced a 30-minute documentary supporting the ballot measure and distributed it at no cost to 21,000 churches in California. The video was written and produced by AFA staffers for a small fraction of typical production costs. The video proved to be a valuable tool in the passage of Proposition 8.

As luck would have it, we grabbed a few segments of that video when the AFA put it up on their website in August 2008 and posted them to YouTube:
