    Gay marriage has never passed on a ballot measure in any state. It won’t pass in MD either in November even though registered Dems outnumber Reps 2-1. Like NC, MD has a high African American population, a group which has traditionally not supported gay marriage.

    Not sure what democracy looks like. Pretty sure it’s a abstract transparency on a crashed hard drive. But the state wanted to know what it’s people believed in, and not what Washington believes in. And I have to think that democracy in Washington only means preserve your party and to hell with the world. What are you talking about MAX?

(AP) — North Carolina voters overwhelmingly passed a constitutional amendment that defines marriage as solely between a man and a woman, but not much is expected to change immediately. That’s because North Carolina law already banned gay marriage. The amendment voters passed Tuesday night by about 61 percent of voters effectively will seal the door on same-sex marriages and potentially have other effects farther down the road.

    by the legal definition of letting the people vote, yes. but it was rather backwards. note they did not exactly vote against same sex marriage as much as redefine the legal status of marriage such that the legal benefits only extend to opposite-sex couples who are already married (so the state does not recognize same-sex couples married at other state, nor do they recognize civil unions of any type)

    Absolutely. The people of North Carolina (“the vale of humility”) have resolutely spoken to maintain marriage as the normal institution it is.

    I think they voted to redefine marriage to be only between a man and a woman. which saves America from the wrath of the Lord God.

    You know you can still put your penis in your boyfriends rectum without getting married and reminding us all that you like to put your penis in your boyfriends rectum.

    Personally, I don’t believe civil rights should be put on the general ballot for people to vote on. If we did that we would still have slavery in the southern states.
