How Do You Feel About The Vote By The Great People Of North Carolina To Keep Marriage Between 1 Man And?

1 woman? I am truly grateful to the people in North Carolina who want to fight the good fight and keep marriage between a man and woman. I just hope what happens in California does not happen in North Carolina where some liberal gay judge on a power trip completely ignores the will of the voters and overturns it.

    I am with you Kristal! Look out though I’m sure you will get hammered for being truthful in your feelings on the issue. The libs are out in force, it’s their way or your a hateful person against all that is holy. Which nothing is holy to the left.

    The amendment contradicts the US Constitution, and is therefor unconstitutional, on two grounds concerning the basis of marriage. If marriage is a legal institution, then denying equal ability to any protected class (of which homosexuals are) to marry is unconstitutional by the 14th amendment; it is the equivalent of disallowing two handicapped people from marrying on the basis of their condition. The “Separate but Equal” decision from Brown v. Board of Education would have made the amendment constitutional if North Carolina left Civil Unions a viable option for homosexuals (while offering the same legal compensation as marriage). However, they did not leave. Unconstitutional Secondly, if marriage is defined in a religious sense it infringes upon the second half of the Freedom of Religion part of the First Amendment, which prohibits “the federal and state governments from establishing an official religion, or from favoring or disfavoring one view of religion over another.” Since there are numerous religions that do support gay marriage, religious belief cannot be used as a basis of definition of marriage, because it places one religion’s views over another and is unconstitutional. Whether North Carolina likes it or not, we live in a Republic and not a Democracy (thank God). Their churches’ (like mine) has the right not to marry gays, but in the United States, the Federal Constitution is the Law of the Land, not the will of the majority.

    For all you sudden NC haters out there, spewing the idea that North Carolina is now stupid, more so than any other state, you people seem to forget that over half the nation has banned gay marriage. We’re not the first to ban it, we’re the 31st. States from the South, Midwest, as well as Michigan, Ohio, and other states have banned gay marriage. So if you think NC is stupid and anti-gay, than you might as well start spewing out the same crap about the other 30 anti-gay states, as well. P.S. If you think I support Amendment One, think again. I currently am officially in the “undecided” column. Probably why I didn’t vote for it either way.

    How would you feel if a state decided to make a law banning you from getting married to the person you loved? Why is it the right go on and on and on about small government, about the government keeping its ugly head out of your lives, yet when it comes to the crunch, they couldn’t give a flying fish, could they, they want the government in OTHER PEOPLE’S LIVES telling them how to live their lives.

    People just can’t accept the fact about what NC voted on. I think people who live outside of NC need to not be so concerned about our state but focus on their own. I was one of the MANY ppl who VOTED FOR it. Yes I will prob get several thumbs down but I don’t care, I stand by my vote!

    I think that it’s a step in the right direction. It shows that the people of North Carolina know what’s right.
