Amendment One in North Carolina

Published May 8, 2012 by shadycatlady

Please refrain from posting anti-gay comments. You are entitled to your own opinion as am I, but I do not care to hear yours, and if you do not want to hear mine simply do not read this.

As a country I thought we were growing the right way.

North Carolina has just slapped me right in the face.

Amendment one has passed in North Carolina, which means marriage between a man and a woman will be the only union recognized from now on. No civil unions or domestic partnerships will be recognized there at all.

I was so sure that things like this were going to get better and that we were finally opening our eyes to what was right and fair but I guess I was wrong.

And I know other states have this law, I’m not sure which ones, but I thought maybe states were done passing things like it.

Its like modern day slavery. People are being discriminated against for no reason other than someone just saying it is wrong.

It makes me sick to live in a country where people who truly love each other cannot get married. I mean we let men have more than one wife, we let people marry their cousins yet we can’t let two people who really love each other of the same gender get married.

I think it is 100% percent right and I fully support gay marriage and I hope someday I can do all I can to help out the cause because it is one thing I am very serious about.

I hope with all my heart one day we will be able to look back on a time like this and think of how ridiculous and barbaric it was that gay couples could not get married, like how we look back on slavery now, because I know that laws like these are not right at all and equality in love is what it is truly right.

Excuse me while I go throw up from disgust.

  • I agree. I am straight and Christian and I have my own personal beliefs regarding homosexuality that are Biblically based… But I am also an American and I am an advocate of freedom, and I am appalled that this amendment passed. I voted AGAINST it – last month I blogged against it. Christians do not have a right to make legislation that forces Christian values & morals & beliefs on people who believe otherwise. This is a direct violation of the civil rights of a targeted group of people, and I cannot in good conscience say I am proud to be a native North Carolinian today.
