North Carolina Voters Pass Same-Sex Marriage Ban
NYT ^ | May 8, 2012

Posted on 05/08/2012 7:13:44 PM PDT by Milagros

As expected, North Carolinians voted in large numbers on Tuesday for an amendment that would ban same-sex marriages, partnerships and civil unions, becoming the 30th state in the country and the last in the South to include a prohibition on gay..

From another article on this same subject: “Polling showed that feelings about the issue were divided in North Carolina as they are across much of the nation: along generational lines, with younger voters opposed to the amendment.”

The sexualization and indoctrination of our children continues unabated.

Is the tally now like 32-0 for traditional marriage?..seriously..maybe someone can set the record straight..what is so funny is that thankfully black and hispanic populations are for traditional marriage..not just “hateful white republicans”..which is such a hateful charge..

These laws protecting marriage also have an important political effect. They can help to reduce the movement of Leftist gay couples and their sympathizers from moving into conservative states. The necessary conservative and fiscally prudent economic policies have the unintended effect of attracting wealthier but liberal newcomers who subvert the policies that make the state economically successful.

Let's pray that his is a bellweather indicating rejection of Western decadence by a majority of Americans.

“marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in this by the state.”

Anything else is decadence.

"it could also apply to the more than 150,000 straight couples in the state who live together but are unmarried."

Tough you-know-what! Get married or don't live together.

That's just more of Western decadence!

Arizona failed to pass one in 2006, then passed it by 57% if I recall in 08. It looks like it is going to be in the low-mid 60% ranges for NC, which is a good sign, in my opinion. Not as high probably as it would have been in the middle of the last decade when most of them passed, but still really decent. It would be awesome if goes to 65%+!

Sex education is the camel’s nose under the tent. We need to destroy the DOE and burn all curricula designed by Billy Ayers types who wanted to “smash monogamy”. Sex Ed was developed by Cultural Marxists to intentionally destroy Virtue and morality—all Christian Ethics in young children and to normalize the unnatural. They had to get the kids in schools-—Dewey was a Fabian Socialist and it all started in the 30’s—to get the minds of children. It took a while for the traditional Christian teachers to die off before the 60’s generation came to fruition.

They do this to destroy Common Sense and logic. It works and creates useful idiots.....people who can not think and process Truth-—they just go by emotions and urges and the direction of their masters.

It's funny the arguments the sodomites are using. One of the major (false) points they're attempting to make is that the amendment would remove protection from domestic violence by unmarried partners.

Are they trying to tell us something about their deviant relationships?

Umm.... the government didn’t define anything.... the electorate did! This is an effort by the citizens to PREVENT the government through activist judges to re-define what the rightful inhabitants want!!

I know the concept of self-rule is hard to understand when things don’t go your way.... This was not the government doing anything ... this was your worst nightmare.... people voicing their opinion through the ballot box!

you, of course are kidding.....there are many governmental situations where a marriage is certainly part of their benefits, responsibilities, etc. If I die, the government recognizes that my wife is in charge of me, my funeral, my assets...everything. If I just have a "good friend" such recognition would not be true. If I ddon't pay my property tax, do you think that the state will seek out my wife for payment ???...they will. Would they seek out my "good friend" ?..I don't think so

Sex education should be a private venture. Everyone has different religions, moral, standards and beleifs and it is disrespectful for the elitists to try and brainwash everyone with their chosen beleifs about sex. It’s not keeping kids from engaging in pre-martial sex nor from getting pregnant.

In addition, the current porn sex aka comprehensive sex ed -has teachers breaking taboos against interacting with the children in a adult sexual way. When adults talk dirty to kids it is called sexual grooming. They need to mind their own business and remove themselves from children’s natural sexual development.

I know....I argued with some of the new crop of brainwashed “teachers”. Even facts can’t sway their belief. Even the basic fact that after Sex Ed was put into the schools, sexual activity in children increased 700%.

If you read the Cultural Marxist’s material-—that is what sex ed is designed to do—destroy morality and virtue in children. It promotes the emotions of sex because children are too immature and inexperienced to understand the deeper meaning of “sex” . Sex Ed removes morality and reduces the act to a base urge. The added Marxist mantra of the Cultural Marxists is: If it feels good, do it.

That is the morality—the pleasure principle— which is hedonism-—that they have forced on all school children (DOE) since the 70’s. They had pilot programs to float their sex ed prior to the mandatory “lessons” in the 70’s and all of them resulted in many more children experimenting with sex. It removes all moral barriers—God. Marx hated God and family relationships. Sex Ed is designed to destroy both-—all long term relationships.

There are many books which address the evil of sexualizing young children—primarily in the Latency period (6-12) where children are naturally not interested in sex—unless they are abused.

Sex Ed is designed to destroy the natural development of children-—to force an interest in sex which will cause abnormal development. The importance of the innocence of childhood was well noted by even the socialist/hippie Rousseau—who acknowledge that early sexualizing of children will also hurt intellectual development. Sex Ed before 7th grade-—because of immaturity of young boys and girls and their desire to be “the same”— will remove respect and dignity from the opposite sex especially when taught in groups by strangers. It removes God—removes the meaning of the act... it is just an animal act-—no different from eating, etc.

Classes always removes the Awe and Mystery when done in an institution removed from family and the public schools always removes God-—removes all morality which is the most important element in civil societies even noted by Freud-—sexual restraint. Without sexual restraint, every institution will collapse....it is the Cultural Marxists intention. They are conditioning children to think of sex as nothing important and something to do for pleasure—just like eating strawberries. This casualness of sex will destroy long term relationships and the emotional development of all children.

If you look at God’s creation of humans, it is clear why He would create children this age, innocent of independent sexual activities and thought if not corrupted by pervert adults or abused peers. Sex is for pro-creation.

Sex is the place where He anchored the experience of bonding and deep love between two heterosexual adults for the purpose uniting into one team in preparation for the self sacrifice or service and success parents need to achieve raising up good, well nurtured children. He did not design sex without love and bonding for children or adults.

Liberals have no business corrupting that design.

Porn wrecks that natural process for adults and children. It is a human love wrecker. Love is our connection to God.

First of all, that doesn't make it right. Second of all, it's a mistake.

sure it makes it right, and no, it's not a mistake...Society, over thousands of years, has determined that certain rules and regulations are necessary for a smooth and orderly continuation of humanity. People determined that a man and a woman, in a relationship which became known as marriage, were best suited to bear and raise children. The people (government) also included protections and benefits for those who chose to follow this pattern. Throughout history, it has proved to be the only successful method to guarantee the continuation of life as we know it. Single parents, same sex "parents" , and and other type of parenting have not proved nearly as succesful as 1 man and 1 woman married to each other. Children of single parents face a much higher rate of criminal activity, school problems, societal problems, stress, being shunned by their peers etc. I work in a juvenile detention facility and see it every day. If the kid is a product of a same sex parental home, it is NEVER even mentioned. The boy would be ostracized at best and bullied mercilessly.
