NORTH CAROLINA VOTERS APPROVE MARRIAGE INEQUALITY AMENDMENT

fter months of contentious campaigning on both sides of the issue, AP is reporting that North Carolina voters have approved Amendment One. The constitutional revision bans not only same-sex marriage, but civil unions and domestic partnerships as well. Voter turnout is expected to break 2008′s primary record of 2.1 million. Opponents got reports earlier in the day that young voters in some areas were receiving incorrect ballots preventing them from voting on the amendment. Conservatives are celebrating a victory, but the vote count so far seems to mirror polling that consistently found that voters were largely unaware of the full impact of the measure. The majority of people in North Carolina clearly do not support this kind of anti-gay discrimination, but misinformation won the day.

Congratulations, you bigotted assholes.

It's more like the legislative equivalent of destroying your house with a bazooka to get rid of a swallowtail.

Yep. Exactly. Complete and utter overkill. Just so completely unnecessary. :(

And the target was utterly harmless anyway.

You're speaking my exact thoughts tonight, bb!
