Dakota Ary, Anti-Gay Texas Teen, Stars In NOM's 'Marriage Anti-Defamation Alliance' Video

The Texas teen whose anti-gay views got him suspended from school last year is now an unofficial spokesperson of sorts for the National Organization for Marriage (NOM).

Dakota Ary -- who reportedly declared "I'm a Christian and, to me, being homosexual is wrong" in reaction to a photograph of two men kissing presented during a German class at his Fort Worth high school -- stars in NOM's new "Marriage Anti-Defamation Alliance" video.

"I've been called, like, the Hitler of our time...people who've said they want to commit suicide because I have breath in my body," Ary, who was 14 at the time of his suspension last year, says in the clip.

Ary's mother Holly, who also appears in the video, says her son "is not a bigot" before adding, "He is not someone who hates gay people, he's not a hater in any way -- and for all of these organizations and companies that promote gay marriage and so on...for them to come back at him as a child is just ridiculous."
