North Carolina bans Gay marriages by rabzy01: 10:22am On May 09, 2012
North Carolina voters have
approved a state
constitutional amendment
that bans same-sex marriage
and civil unions, dealing a
blow to efforts across the
United States to extend gay
marriage rights.
The amendment, which
defines marriage between a
man and a woman as the
only legally recognised
domestic union in the state,
was passed by a wide margin
on Tuesday.
With 95 of 100 counties'
results reported, about 61
per cent of voters backed the
amendment.
North Carolina law already
blocks gay and lesbian
couples from marrying, but
the state now joins other
southeastern states in adding
the prohibition to its
constitution.
Many voters simply viewed
the amendment as a vote on
same-sex marriage despite
efforts by the measure's
opponents to broaden the
discussion, Tom Jensen of
the Raleigh-based Public
Policy Polling firm said.
"Anytime in North Carolina
you have a majority of
Republicans and African
Americans on the same side
of an issue, that's a very
potent combination," Jensen
said.

Good.

It seems the only way pro-gay social integration policies are successful is by a few ignorant minority forcing their elitist opinions on the majority through forcing of unpopular laws, ignoring public opinion, and then letting the public get used to the law.

I thought the Americans were trying to strongarm us into repealing the anti-gay marriage law. How hypocritic.

Why are you clumping all Americans the same? I know you don't like it when people clumps all Nigerians the same. I am sure of that!

Not all Americans are born in America either so we have all different mindsets and opinions that shapes America and the same goes for Nigeria.

I, an American do not give a Bleep how OTHER COUNTRIES run their people.....your country can burn all homosexuals for all I give a damn.

Real talk.
