      As most of you know North Carolina is hours away from passing an amendment additive that may constrict Gay marriage. I am fully against the bill in every way, and I don't think it's the states or Federal jurisdiction to pass such an act.

      To every gay couple out there I am sincerely sorry for any objection that may be made law by these silly elections.

      I was wondering how a full 18% of the GOP voters in the state thought voting for Frothy or Newt was a good idea then I saw that A1 had passed. They had to be the same people.

      It is pretty ridiculous. What exactly does this mean for gay members of our state?

      It doesn't sound pretty.

      I don't know. Is there a date when it will go into effect? Will it hold up to "activist judges" ?

      I welcome being corrected but all it means I've read is the wall against allowing gay couples more than civil unions just got built a little higher.

      Gay couples are already limited to civic unions only and this is just a means to try and prevent future attempts to change that.

      People who are married get benefits from working like work insurance and such. When your husband or wife is in the ER swell, only the immediate family is allowed in.

      With gay Marriage, they are giving them all the perks of being married. I just do not believe that they should pass this as "Marriage".

      They should just name it something else....

      What does this tell you? The majority of voters are AGAINST gay marriage. Respect their decision.

      I think "respect" not meaning "like", "agree with" or "support" might have been covered here.

      you are right, no one should ever protest or maintain an opposing view to the majority of voters.

      Yup.

      I find it funny that majority includes a large % of the black community in NC. Using the same bible verses that were once used to justify slavery as a means to justify hate against gays.

      I love how history repeats itself.

      If the voters voted to permit slavery or the internment of Japanese again we should go along with their wishes then, right?

      No. It says that it was nearly a case of voter fraud. They put it on the primary ballot, specifically because most voters at the polls that day would be Republicans. If it had been on the fall ballot, it would not have passed.

      This. It boggles my mind how heterosexual's debate this when they have not lived it! Stop telling me how I chose it when you have no idea. I did not chose my hair color, skin color nor my eye color. I can do my best to hide it but at the end of the day I was born this way. And to piss some more people off, GOD made me this way. Him and I are good, it's the zealots who have the problem. Stop focusing on others and worry about you.

      The fact is that I don't know the answer, but neither do other psychologists or scientists. I have zero issues with homosexuals being able to do what you all wish to do, nor do I think it is abhorrent behavior or anything of the sort. To me, whether it is developmental or biological makes no difference, but I do get ill when folks try to state theory and/or conjecture as fact.

      But as for the law, I am fine with it. It does not infringe on one's individual rights.
