Posted on 05/08/2012 6:21:23 PM PDT by Steelfish
North Carolina already bans gay marriage by statute. Amendment One goes beyond confining marriage to heterosexual couples; it amends the constitution to also makes marriage between a man and a woman the only domestic legal union recognized in the state.

Similar legislation passed in the Peoples’ Republik of Kalifornia also. And we know where that went.
Oh that’s gonna ruffle some feather boas!
Give ‘Em Hell, North Carolina!
Was that a constitutional amendment?
Praise the Lord!!!
Well in California we passed a law, then a constitutional amendment and a single judge over turned the peoples vote - twice.....hope this state fairs better.
Yet again, when the people speak, homo “marriage” is rejected.
Yet again, when the left has no use for peon voters, homo marriage is imposed by the court.
And of course some lib activist judge will throw it out.
To the courts, sodomy lobby!
hahaha tomorrow obamma will clarify his ‘evolving’ position
on same sex marriage. i’m guessin he’ll be aginnit!
not good foreshadowing for team obamma,including the lugar defeat(can he still be on tv every sunday morning with mclame?)
might be good for us though!
Cries, howls, and screams of discrimination, homophobia, boycotts and everything in between. Hollywood and the MSM will make NC pay for this and will enlist the support of college campuses, high schools, local bar associations, and state and federal judges. The battle royale is joined.
What was the margin of the win?
542,53240%(Precincts: 54% reporting at 9:36 p.m.)
Sheppy is round-heeled not tar-heeled.
President Barack Obama had opposed the amendment.
“While the president does not weigh in on every single ballot measure in every state, the record is clear that the President has long opposed divisive and discriminatory efforts to deny rights and benefits to same sex couples,” Cameron French, Obama’s North Carolina campaign spokesman, said in March.
The results of this is going to be exactly the results of the elections.
I wish you are correct but don’t be so sure. It’s a city versus rural thing.
The amendment was trailing in Charlotte, in the Triangle counties around Raleigh and Chapel Hill, as well as the Winston-Salem-Greensboro area, according to figures from the State Board of Elections.
But it was winning by wide margins in rural counties and in the suburbs of Charlotte - the home of famous evangelist Billy Graham, who endorsed the ballot measure last week.
Wasn’t there some story about gay rights and the community along with soccer moms rose up and were all for helping to ‘get rights for all’.
Can’t remember what or when exactly but do remember someone writing about how afterwards, all the moms with their children celebrating the ‘win’ were horrified when the men all started kissing in front of everyone.
Just remember the Hokey Pokey- that’w what it’s all about, people.
I can remember around 1988 talking with another grad student at the University of Southern Mississippi that the next big push by the left would be homosexuality. Sure enough it was. I also told him I thought they may just finally lose as the vast majority are opposed to it. Still the media acts as if homosexual marriage is completely accepted by everyone
except Christian biggots.
Maybe we will end up winning this one after all. No matter how much those in charge push.
I base that on the fact that NC is a “Moderate State” and the MSM was claiming that gay marriage opinions were split 50-50 but in reality these results are the real picture.
Good call, Axelrod.
How great is this? An anti gay marriage, right to work state hosting the Democrat National Convention.
Ummmm... don’t confuse the people of Kalifornia who passed the legislation handily with the liberal federal judges who shot it down. Liberal federal judges are liberal federal judges, be they in CA or NC.
He was supposed to come to Asheville today, but cancelled last minute (reading the polls?).
Some figures on the election: 958K Dems, 966 Reps. Amendment 1 passed 61-39. Obama garnered ONLY 79% of the vote, “No Preference” got 21% ....Could that be a problem come November??? The Libertarian party was led by “No Preference” at 57% !!! Hahaha.... Bob (Who you?) Etheridge gained only 38% in his run for governor....
LOTS of good news tonight....
