Gay Marriage Amendment

The NC House has decided to let voters decide next May as to whether or not they want to add a provision to the state constitution that defines marriage between one man and one woman.

I was just curious as to whether or not your state has a similar provision in your states constitution?

Not even sure what gives a government the right to define marriage.

Har, har. Never heard that one before. Actually, Adam and Eve are fictional characters so I'm not really sure how they help settle 21st century issues.

The NC amendment moves to the state senate today. We are the last southern state that hasn't amended its state constitution to appease the insecurity of the religious right. If it goes to the voters in May, it'll be an interesting public debate. My marriage to my wife and the family we have are not threatened by the relationship of a same-sex couple. During a period of high unemployment and economic insecurity, this issue should be the last of our worries.

Please leave the god freak stuff elsewhere, thanks.

Funny thing thing is my best and most loyal friends are gay or lesbian, some of the worst people i've met are people like you. I live in the south not by choice and I have to put up with this church church church crap all day long at work and wherever I go, i do NOT need it on here too.

I support gay rights 100%

You have to admit. Politicans aren't the smartest bunch...but they sure are sly.

They will have you fighting over this for months or even years...and all the while they will rob your state blind.

Adam and Eve were I assume of the same race. Given this logic, the states eventually will try and define marriage as legal only between members of the same race....

Completely serious question: did Adam and Eve ever technically get married?

So who exactly did Adam bang in order to continue the species?

You see how this works is when the politicians want to do something and do it without us paying much attention, all they have to do is pull a hot button topic out of the bag and redirect our attention to it, instead of what they are really doing as they line their own pockets.

The gay marriage thing is one of those hot button topics they use to get us to look the other way.... Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.

+1


Marriage was destroyed by Man and Woman, not Man and Man.

If it doesn't concern you, leave it alone.

Civil unions, fine. Sanctify perversion, whatever.
Marriage- is it really worth ammending a constitution over?
I also believe God defined marraige and am sick of people changing church views and standards to "keep up with the times." The Bible has not changed, leaders and morality have.

Who cares? The way I look at it, there's NO WAY someone would CHOOSE to be gay. With the lifetime of discrimination and persecution they are bound to receive, NO ONE would do it on purpose. That means they are wired that way, and cannot help it. Let them be happy. This country was not founded on the principle of limiting people's rights, and now is not a good time to start it. I don't want someone telling me I can't carry a gun, so I wouldn't appreciate someone telling me who I can or can't marry. The way I see it, the more rights that get taken away, the more we all get hurt. Even though gay marriage is not a right I will ever use, it's also not something I think the government should decide. The more we let our government control what we do, the more they will think we NEED them to control what we do. And that's not how it's supposed to work.
