Lesbian seeking marriage license arrested in NC
CBS ^ | 5/10/2012 | ap

Posted on 05/10/2012 5:53:35 PM PDT by tobyhill

- A lesbian who sought a North Carolina marriage license with her partner and was rejected under a state law banning same-sex marriage was arrested with another person Thursday after they refused to leave a government office where several gay and lesbian couples were turned away.

The civil disobedience followed a day after President Barack Obama publicly endorsed same-sex marriage, and two days after North Carolina voters overwhelmingly passed a constitutional amendment that defines marriage as solely between a man and a woman.

The protest came amid attempts by a gay rights group, Campaign for Southern Equality, to broaden public support to allow same-sex marriage and more protests are planned in coming days at other county offices in North Carolina that issue marriage licenses.

Nine gay and lesbian couples each presented completed forms and identification to a clerk at the local Register of Deeds office in Winston-Salem, but were refused because state law recognizes only heterosexual couples.

Sexual deviants demanding legitimacy.

Methinks the revolution is starting.

‘Woman arrested for blocking government office’

Wouldn’t that be a more accurate headline?

It’s the same headline as on the linked story. Headline adulteration is highly frowned upon here.

What was the percentage in Onslow and Craven counties? Big military towns, so I was wondering how the new gay-approved military voted.

Lesbian seeking marriage license

That sounds almost like some DoD weapon like heat seeking missile

I keep waiting to see some Lockheed Martin fellow explain -

'It weighs approximately 195 pounds and can accelerate from 0 to moonbat in 2.3 seconds. The Lesbian seeking marriage license displaces a tremendous amount of force and spreads lethal amounts of AIDS upon impact. We are expecting to greatly ramp up production in order to meet the US military's demand.'

Onslow County and Carteret County went around 72-76% for the Amendment 1, Wilmington was the only City in NC to vote overwhelming for the Amendment. Basically East of Hwy 95 is conservative. One other interesting note from the NC primary. Mitt may claim a victory, but he should seriously take notice that 44% of Republicans voted for anybody but Mitt. Mitts people be warned moving to far left of right could cost him NC.

73% and 64%, respectively. Seems those military towns aren’t as “gay-approving” as the Obama administration’s military polling stated.

Thanks - I found the information.

I agree, east of 95 is MUCH more conservative than the rest of the state. And I also agree, Mitt better realize that he only has grip on the GOP-e. The conservative base is not likely to allow him to drift too far towards center/center-left - before we will be more than happy to let him sink out there on that raft!

I pray that he gets a decent VP nominee, because if he gets a McCain-like dweeb, he will loose to Obama. If Mitt wants to GUARANTEE a win, all he has to do is stay right where he is on MOST issues and get a Tea Party-backed, conservative-arousing VP and he is IN LIKE FLYNN!

'state law recognizes only heterosexual couples.'

Huh? I thought state law recognized marriage only between a man and a woman and doesn't say anything about orientation. The MSM is simply clueless.

I am so SICK of this “movement.” Being denied access on the basis of one’s sexual preference is not equivalent to being denied access on the basis of one’s skin color. It’s not even in the same ballpark.

Someone please tell me ... When were LGBTs put in chains, sold, and beaten? When were they lynched or dragged behind pickup trucks until dead? When were they terrorized with burning crosses by @ssholes in white sheets? When were they made to use separate restrooms, water fountains, and lunch counters? When were they sent to separate public schools? When were they forced to ride at the back of the bus? When were they fed slop and paid a pittance for their hard labor? When were they denied a vote or counted as three-fifths of a person for the census? When did they have sh*t thrown at them just for walking to/from home through the “good” part of town? When were they called “boy” and struck in the face for not addressing their “betters” with enough respect? When were their community leaders assassinated? When did all of that happen to them?

Black people should be outraged at the LGBT attempt to equate the bloody Civil Rights movement with a desire for a marriage license and tax benefits!

Before you include Washington State in that appellation, know that it was the governor and legislature who slipped that through -- as in some other states -- and the actual population (especially on the east side of the state) is busy as I speak signing referendum petitions to block the homo marriage law.

Typical leftist headline. Makes it sound like the deviant was arrested for merely applying for the license rather than because she refused to leave.

Oh, for refusing to leave a government office when ordered to do so — trespassing, in other words. Fine. From the headline, it sounded like North Carolina was arresting gay people for trying to get marriage licenses.

Yes....I agree with y’all on the social issues like gay marriage...but the bone headed voter needs none of these issues to divert their attention from this disterous economy and pilaging of the Consitution with Obama regulations

"The civil disobedience followed a day after President Barack Obama publicly endorsed same-sex marriage..."

Let me ask you good folks a question. Why aren't good conservatives getting locked up for civil disobedience following any number of Barack Obama's transgressions against our foundational principles, and our Constitution?

I've said in previous posts, that the Ballot Box is broken, the Soap Box is broken, and the Cartridge Box is the 'go to' box of last and final resort - but that there is still one box remaining that we patriots have yet to open. That is what I call the Tool Box, of which, civil disobedience is one of the more effective tools within.

I've been flamed a few times for even making this suggestion, but it's my feeling that we've only got two real choices at this juncture. Either keep complaining on the Soap Box (which isn't working), or take it to the next level, which is the Tool Box (see: Boston Tea Party).

Of, course, there's a third choice, which is simply succumbing to the encroaching tyranny, but I doubt that most of us are consciously choosing that option.

Over the next four years, I believe it's going to become apparent to most conservatives that these are our realistic choices. I hope we choose wisely.

Of course it’s a distraction but the more it’s put out there at this time, the faster people will be burned out on it and regain their focus on the economy.

We I went to bed the number was higher, but that include the number of ballots where voter did not vote for any Republican Presidential Candidate.
