So North Carolina has now joined forces solidly with the Bigoted States of America. Instead of worrying and taking action on issues that might better the state's people socially or economically, the state's bigots decided to focus on denying equal protection under the state constitution to Gays and Lesbians. The Amendment will do nothing to protect the institution of marriage, since mainly it is heterosexuals who trash that concept (see Newt Gingrich). But, I guess, since the state's bigots can't any longer openly deny equal protection to Blacks, they decided instead to focus on the LGBT communities.
Well congratulations to the bigots. Let us hope they now reap everything their new Amendment promises.
As ye sow, so shall ye reap.
be careful what you wish for . . .
