The National Organization For Marriage's Rhode Island chapter, Rhode Island for Marriage, recently bought a stock picture from Shutterstock.com and created an anti-gay narrative around the girl in the picture, reports GoodAsYou.com.

Rhode Island for Marriage falsely claimed that the girl in the picture, 'Grace,' testified in a Minnesota House Civil Law Hearing on same sex marriage. 

Rhode Island for Marriage then posted it on Twitter.com, hoping it would go viral, which it did, but not in a good way.

The original picture from Shutterstock.com does not mention any names or hearings, only "Young girl sitting on steps and daydreaming" in the website description.
