Vote FOR Marriage NC

From YouTube:

This is a video that explains Why Marriage Matters. The issues and subsequent consequences surrounding the definition of marriage are much more complex than many of us may think.

The threat to our state’s definition of marriage is real. In fact, North Carolina is the only remaining southern state that has not protected the definition of marriage in its constitution.

Don’t be Fooled! In an attempt to divorce the Marriage Amendment from marriage, opponents deceptively call it “Amendment One.” Do not be mistaken on Election Day. The only initiative that will appear on the ballot this May 8th is the Marriage Amendment, NOT “Amendment One.”

Marriage Protection Amendment: Marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in this State.

My wife and I went to see Tami Fitzgerald who is in this video. The Chatham republican Woman’s group had her speak in Pittsboro last night. She was excellent!!

God is the author of marriage…God believes that marriage is between one man and one woman…so do I.
Thank you Tami, for all of your hard work!

Yes. I get it. Marriage is between one man and one woman. What precisely is to be gained from the amendment?

Now suppose a same sex couple moves with children (from a state that acknowleges same sex marriage) to NC.
1. The state of NC is legally required to accept the marriage from another state. If the “family” remains in NC long enough to become a resident of our state, then we are treating NC residents differently.
2. Since NC courts must recognize the lawful contracts & laws from the other state, NC courts will inevitably be faced with divorce, child custody, maintenance, NC Social Services for same sex partners married in another state.

IMHO, we should reserve changes to our previous constitution that are absolutely necessary & which will not open a pandora’s box of legal quagmires.

A constitutional amendment regarding marriage between one man and one woman is unnecessary and polarizes the electorate. What next? -- a constitutional amendment requiring that parents hug their kids at least once a day?
