North Carolina voters ban gay marriage, civil unions
Yahoo! News / The Associated Press ^ | May 8, 2012 | Liz Goodwin

North Carolinians voted to change the state constitution Tuesday to say that the only valid "domestic legal partnership" in the state is marriage between a man and a woman, according to the AP's projection. The amendment passed 61 to 39 percent with most counties reporting, making North Carolina the 29th state with a gay marriage ban in its constitution.

The state already outlawed gay marriage, but the constitutional amendment makes it more difficult for politicians to ever change the law. The amendment also means that a handful of North Carolina municipalities that extended benefits to the domestic partners of their employees will no longer be able to do so, since marriage is now the only valid legal partnership in the state....

This ought to put a severe crimp in Obama's "evolving" thoughts on gay marriage....at least till after the November election.

"And the Democrats think North Carolina will go for Obama later this year? Seriously?!"

I agree. Seeing this lopsided vote, NC goes back to red easy. Just 4 states and our long national nightmare is over.

2008 + IN, NC, FL, NV, VA, OH = 271EV

You can count on both Obama and Romney proclaiming their admiration for deviants using the usual weasel words: tolerance, fairness, yadda yadda.

Obama has already come out as an open enemy of marriage. I’ll bet Larry Sinclair is disappointed that he hasn’t come out of the closet! Romney is Obama 4 years ago; his support would vanish just as quickly.

Great! Fantastic! The Lord expected nothing less. In fact, He demanded it! Outstanding NC. Great sign that Oscuma is in trouble there for the GE.

Get ready for some gays to move there! One responded that they could not wait to go back to Florida because it allows gay marriages.

Just don’t move to Asheville - the San Francisco of the south.
The amendment was voted down in Buncombe County (Asheville).

As others have said on FR. This isn’t about the law and such. It’s about approval. They see us shake our heads and condone and it irks them. They see churches tell them that they are loved, but are living in sin, and they get upset by that. They want that peace that comes from acknowledging sin and working away from it. So instead of doing that, they fight to make it “ok”.

Michael Swift - "Gay Revolutionary"


(The Congressional Record)

We shall sodomize your sons, emblems of your feeble masculinity, of your shallow dreams and vulgar lies. We shall seduce them in your schools, in your dormitories, in your gymnasiums, in your locker rooms, in your sports arenas, in your seminaries, in your youth groups, in your movie theater bathrooms, in your army bunkhouses, in your truck stops, in your all male clubs, in your houses of Congress, wherever men are with men together. Your sons shall become our minions and do our bidding. They will be recast in our image. They will come to crave and adore us.

Women, you cry for freedom. You say you are no longer satisfied with men; they make you unhappy. We, connoisseurs of the masculine face, the masculine physique, shall take your men from you then. We will amuse them; we will instruct them; we will embrace them when they weep. Women, you say you wish to live with each other instead of with men. Then go and be with each other. We shall give your men pleasures they have never known because we are foremost men too, and only one man knows how to truly please another man; only one man can understand the depth and feeling, the mind and body of another man.

All laws banning homosexual activity will be revoked. Instead, legislation shall be passed which engenders love between men.

All homosexuals must stand together as brothers; we must be united artistically, philosophically, socially, politically and financially. We will triumph only when we present a common face to the vicious heterosexual enemy.

If you dare to cry faggot, fairy, queer, at us, we will stab you in your cowardly hearts and defile your dead, puny bodies.

We shall write poems of the love between men; we shall stage plays in which man openly caresses man; we shall make films about the love between heroic men which will replace the cheap, superficial, sentimental, insipid, juvenile, heterosexual infatuations presently dominating your cinema screens. We shall sculpt statues of beautiful young men, of bold athletes which will be placed in your parks, your squares, your plazas. The museums of the world will be filled only with paintings of graceful, naked lads.

Our writers and artists will make love between men fashionable and de rigueur, and we will succeed because we are adept at setting styles. We will eliminate heterosexual liaisons through usage of the devices of wit and ridicule, devices which we are skilled in employing.

We will unmask the powerful homosexuals who masquerade as heterosexuals. You will be shocked and frightened when you find that your presidents and their sons, your industrialists, your senators,your mayors, your generals, your athletes, your film stars, your television personalities, your civic leaders, your priests are not the safe, familiar, bourgeois, heterosexual figures you assumed them to be. We are everywhere; we have infiltrated your ranks. Be careful when you speak of homosexuals because we are always among you; we may be sitting across the desk from you; we may be sleeping in the same bed with you.

There will be no compromises. We are not middle-class weaklings. Highly intelligent, we are the natural aristocrats of the human race, and steely-minded aristocrats never settle for less. Those who oppose us will be exiled.

We shall raise vast private armies, as Mishima did, to defeat you. We shall conquer the world because warriors inspired by and banded together by homosexual love and honor are invincible as were the ancient Greek soldiers.

The family unit-spawning ground of lies, betrayals, mediocrity, hypocrisy and violence--will be abolished. The family unit, which only dampens imagination and curbs free will, must be eliminated. Perfect boys will be conceived and grown in the genetic laboratory. They will be bonded together in communal setting, under the control and instruction of homosexual savants.

All churches who condemn us will be closed. Our only gods are handsome young men. We adhere to a cult of beauty, moral and esthetic. All that is ugly and vulgar and banal will be annihilated. Since we are alienated from middle-class heterosexual conventions, we are free to live our lives according to the dictates of the pure imagination. For us too much is not enough.

The exquisite society to emerge will be governed by an elite comprised of gay poets. One of the major requirements for a position of power in the new society of homoeroticism will be indulgence in the Greek passion. Any man contaminated with heterosexual lust will be automatically barred from a position of influence. All males who insist on remaining stupidly heterosexual will be tried in homosexual courts of justice and will become invisible men.

"We shall rewrite history, history filled and debased with your heterosexual lies and distortions. We shall portray the homosexuality of the great leaders and thinkers who have shaped the world. We will demonstrate that homosexuality and intelligence and imagination are inextricably linked, and that homosexuality is a requirement for true nobility, true beauty in a man.

"We shall be victorious because we are fueled with the ferocious bitterness of the oppressed who have been forced to play seemingly bit parts in your dumb, heterosexual shows throughout the ages. We too are capable of firing guns and manning the barricades of the ultimate revolution.

Tremble, hetero swine, when we appear before you without our masks.


***********************************************

Be not deceived my friends. Homosexuality is an abomination in the eyes of God, man and nature and sodomites do not give one wit about you.

North Carolina has seen through the homosexual agenda and rejected same sex marriage. This short sighted segment that see no ill effects of same sex marriage don’t understand the importance of the institution of marriage to a healthy culture. Knocking down a system that protects women and is the best environment for raising children to legitimize their life style is the worst form of narcissism.

the homosexuals will now file federal law suits arguing equal protection for voting issues and homosexual endorsement issues.

One side effect, it just became less expensive to insure employees.

Homosexual marriage is not recognized in Florida, but how long that will last ? Most poltical power down here resides in Palm Beach, Broward, and Collier counties.

Unfortunately, all three counties are filled with northern transplants from liberal havens like New York and Boston.

Exterminating or exiling the queers is a simpler option.

There will be an exedous from Asheville to some where more queer friendly..

This time all States should secede from Washington DC. If Calif and Mass don’t want to come along, that’s OK too.
