Wrong side of history again, NC.

Why are there so many god-damn hillbillies and goosesteppers in this country, and how much gasoline would it require to burn them all into the ground?

This is disgusting.

For shame, NC. You should be embarrassed of yourselves. There's no reason to deny other human beings basic rights. Something is farked up in America.

To the People of North Carolina:

In these problematic times, I'm glad that you can focus on what is really important - Banning Gay Marriage. You have set aside the trivial problems of your state, such as your 9.7% unemployment rate (ranking you 47th in the nation for employment), homeless problems, or your education situation. It's great to see that tackling the threat of two consenting adults that love each other is on the front burner of your state. It shows dedication to the real problems of the 21st Century and I hope that other states can follow your example.

Sincerely,
Aar1012

Don't blame me! I voted against it.

But while supporters of the amendment emphasized so-called traditional family values, opponents to the measure sought to make the campaign about anything but same-sex marriage, which was already banned under a 1996 state statute. Instead, the anti-amendment contingent argued that, in precluding legal recognition for civil unions and domestic partnerships, Amendment One would carry negative implications on both gay and straight unmarried couples.

"The more you tighten your grip, Conservatives, the more states will slip through your fingers."

Specifically, the more fundamentalist and extreme they go, the easier it makes it to overturn legally under due process and equal protection.
 
2012-05-08 11:04:04 PM  
I think what those hicks (hillbillies are up in the mountains, y'all) fail to realize is that this bill is going to affect straight, unmarried couples too. If an SO's parents want to invoke this law to keep you out of their hospital room, well. Sucks to be you. This can also lead to some abuses in custody cases.
 
2012-05-08 11:04:05 PM  
They're just pissed about the attractive and successful property they lost back in 1865.

They'll get over it.

About the same time as the Palestinians leave Palestine.

I'm shocked, absolutely shocked, that the majority votes down equal rights for minorities.

I wonder if people 30+ years from now will look at the gay marriage "debate" as we now look at the Civil Rights Movement. I also wonder if the issue of interracial marriage was on the ballot today what percentage of the public would outlaw it. (My guess: 25-30% on average, higher in the South.)
 
2012-05-08 11:04:45 PM  
Damn bible punks. Its always something with them. And black voters. Many ironies as one minority denies rights to another.
 
2012-05-08 11:04:51 PM  
Redneck dipwads are just ostracizing themselves from modern society. Hope they don't expect growth or tourism dollars any day soon.
 
2012-05-08 11:04:55 PM  
Aol.com, yeah, I know, said on their headline "NC votes to ban gay marriage." The fact that that was their headline shows most people didn't know what amendment 1 actually meant
 
2012-05-08 11:04:57 PM  
America to N.C.: you are all irrelevant inbred retards.
 
2012-05-08 11:05:03 PM  
Remember, the slogan is "not anti-gay but pro-marriage"

I think it is more (NSFW language): Link
 
2012-05-08 11:05:08 PM  
This is a damn shame. I'm off to marry my cousin.

Meh, hillbillies and hicks are interchangeable when you have no mountains around.

This is doubly depressing... I'm ashamed of my state and of myself for not getting an easy greenlight :-(
I'm gonna go crawl into a bottle...

I submitted this with angrier headline.

/but am still wigged out over Michele Bachmann getting a Swiss passport. Srsly? Hell, you lose a Secret clearance if you take a second citizenship, and she sits on the House Intel committee?
 
2012-05-08 11:05:50 PM  
As it's worded I'm not sure the amendment would survive a review in the federal courts. And I wouldn't be surprised if one is forthcoming.
 
2012-05-08 11:06:11 PM  
This issue yet again comes to the forefront at election time. Until we fix our infrastructure, take care of our debt, get out of the useless wars we are in, get folks back to work, create a school system that works, etc etc this issue means almost next to nothing either way.

are you insuating that the blue devil is a homosexual

Well, it was already illegal and the cons blew their wad on a primary instead of drumming up Romney turnout in the general

At least we can still marry our first cousin.

Generation_D: Damn bible punks. Its always something with them. And black voters. Many ironies as one minority denies rights to another.


When the issue of gay marriage was being decided upon about a year ago in a different state, African Americans drove up from a church from a different state to protest the possibility of gay marriage, and gathered at the deciding state's capital and sang 'we shall overcome.'

The irony was beautiful.
 
2012-05-08 11:06:41 PM  
North Carolina was more progressive in 1875.
 
2012-05-08 11:06:42 PM  
As a native of Asheville this makes me very sad, though not altogether surprised. I'm going to go drink a six-pack of craft beer and talk my parents off the ledge.

To any and everyone who voted for this atrocity : F*ck you.

2012-05-08 11:07:18 PM  
but...Christ didn't mention homosexuality. Not once. in fact, he didn't even imply homosexuality was wrong. Jesus seemed utterly indifferent to gay sex.
 
2012-05-08 11:07:27 PM  
Come on, secede already. We won't even fight to get you back this time. Just take your backward-ass selves, raise the confederate flag, chant "states rights", and get the fark away from those of us who live in the 21st century.
 
2012-05-08 11:07:33 PM  
So they have adopted the Obama position on gay marriage? Sounds rather socialisty and kenyan if you ask me. If they really wanted to stick it to the usurper, they would have voted to allow gay marriage.

So why was it that the GOP insisted on bringing it up in the first place?

2012-05-08 11:08:00 PM  
FTR, this passed due to the votes in the rural areas. Those of us in the big cities actually voted against it for the most part.

That being said, lots of states far more progressive have similar laws. This is not strictly a dem/repub issue either.

Sad day, that much is certain.
 
2012-05-08 11:08:18 PM  
The best part is when they had accused rapist and admitted adulterer Bill Clinton lecturing North Carolinians on marriage. LOL dumbass liberals.
