...Tar Heel Staters, is there ANY reason to believe the pro-homosexual lobby will make up those 11 points?

all this will do is insure that Obama won’t openly support gay marriage until the day after the election.... along with reparations, banning guns, socialized medicine, 70% income tax bracket and everything he says he will never support.

So we just win in November. :) It’ll happen.

Look at Indiana...man, this is just MORE evidence America is sick of liberal politics and the culture of perversion.

Obama and Lugar represented BOTH...one just had a little more of a mask than the other.

Oh definitely. That is their next step. Always is. I wonder how they will address the civil unions. That is going to be interesting. A man and woman living together for 30 years will now be considered single. Changes taxes, wills, hospital visits, and all kinds of stuff. Although on a positive, if they are together for a long period and break up, they don’t have to pay or split anything. Some straight folks will find this a good thing especially those about to break up.

That makes no sense (as if!). If something is part of a constitution, then it must be, by definition, constitutional. It cannot be against itself.

I know, I know. You did qualify the judge as liberal, activist.

I feared the same but apparently this is an amendment to the state Constitution which means it isn’t necessarily up to a judge since the judge will have a difficult time interpreting a clearly worded passage the wrong way.

Only a few municipalities have some form of “civil union” for unmarried couples, and none of those statutes has been in place very long. Unmarried romantic couples - or any group of two or more people who want a formal legal relationship, including inheritance, medical decision-making, and so forth - have the legal tools to do so irrespective of their unmarried status, and any competent estates attorney can arrange the legalities according to the specific needs of the people.

What a slap in the face for the Demorats-they chose North Carolina for their national convention. I wonder if there will be a movement within the moonbat rats to boycott the state and move the convention to another state-say Vermont or Massachusetts

We just got a email asking for prayer from a lady working near the polling place.

One of the Pro-Marriage Amendment ladies said “a young man approached me and introduced himself. He said his name was Tim Gold, and that Mitchell Gold was his “husband”. In case you don’t know who Mitchell Gold is, he’s a very wealthy homosexual activist in Hickory who owns a furniture company...(he said) “that he had dedicated his life to making me the most miserable person on the earth.”

“His parting comment is that I would be crushed by him and Mitchell Gold.”

Mitchell Gold is the founder of “Faith in America” a pro-homosexual activist group.

And while I can't speak for him, I believe that God is smiling on North Carolina.

Thank you right thinking voters in NC.

This is terrific news for sure!

Also, there’s a North Carolina race I’m keeping a watchful eye on in the 7th Congressional District where Ilario Pantano, a Marine who served in both Gulf Wars, is facing the GOP’s handpicked establishment candidate, David Rouzer, a 20-year Washington lobbyist who is alleged to have promoted amnesty for illegal aliens in order benefit one of his clients.

Has anyone seen or heard any election returns yet in this particular race?

NC has never had “Civil Unions” for a man and woman. That garbage was reserved for homosexuals. This law does away with it. Thanks be to God. The degenerates losing big time.

Oh geez, the 7th Congressional District is a nail-biter as of 9:15 p.m. eastern time:

Ilario Gregory Pantano (R) 46.91% 16,854
David Rouzer (RINO) 46.21% 16,603

Can’t really tell how many votes are still left to be counted based on the data I have.

Marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in this State. This section does not prohibit a private party from entering into contracts with another private party; nor does this section prohibit courts from adjudicating the rights of private parties pursuant to such contracts.

This looks too ambiguous to stand up.

And we did not, nor ever will, vote for Mitt Romney.

I understand that. Likewise I understand Jim Robinson's identical position.

But I'm curious who you will be pulling for on election night in November.

Probably not, but he won’t have the liberal Congress he needs to pass any of that, and will face an even more conservative Congress after 2014.

I live in NY but I am doign some work in NC

I was shocked by the effort to portray this as some evil thing you had to be against

NO ONE was for it that I talked to, and many people were PO’d at having to vote for it in the first place- they were so sick of being portrayed as evil for wanting marriage to be man and woman.

And the thought that THIS was in issue that was important in this economic climate pissed them off even more

Excellent, and thank you, North Carolina voters! Glad there's some common sense still out there (there isn't much up here in the People's Republik of Connecticut).

One of these years we're outta here - we hope to move somewhere between mid-Virgina and Florida. My husband loves what he's seen of NC, but we weren't sure (as of a couple of years ago) if NC was "conservative enough".

I know... incredible, isn't it? I barely recognize this world we now live in, and... I'm really not that old...

BTW, I live in the People's Republik of Connecticut, which became a Gay State years ago thanks to one activist judge who decided to change CT's constitution.
