NC voters decide to openly discriminate against their fellow gay citizens
So much for planning a vacation to North Carolina anytime soon!
NC voters decided to openly discriminate against their fellow gay citizens by passing Amendment One to their constitution, limiting legal unions to marriage only between a man and a woman and banning civil unions and domestic partnerships.
It’s a sad day in the land of Lincoln when fellow citizens once again choose to trample over other people’s civil rights.
Today, NC voters decided to ignore our nation’s Declaration of Independence that states: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”
