Gay group starts petition to force Dems to move convention out of NC
By Neil Munro - The Daily Caller | The Daily Caller – 7 hrs ago

A gay advocacy group is trying to rally sympathizers to help shift the Democrats’ trouble-plagued convention from North Carolina to another state.

The group, Gay Marriage USA, launched a petition on change.org immediately after the state’s voters overwhelmingly decided May 8 to define marriage as a heterosexual institution.

The state’s amendment “discriminates against LGBT people, couples & their families [and] in protest, the Democratic National Convention Committee should MOVE its convention… to a state that upholds values of equality & liberty, and which treats ALL citizens equally,” according to a statement by the group on change.org.

The petition quickly picked up roughly 15,000 votes by 11 a.m. EST, May 9.

== It would mean millions of dollars wasted to move it, etc and force diversion of funds from other activities.

This could be symbolic...

Speaking of toilets....

Reports now indicate installation of a retractable roof to the
Panther Stadium in Charlotte, NC, is right on schedule and
will be finished in time for the Democrat National Convention
and pResident Obama’s speech.
