North Carolina Passes Initiative Banning Same Sex Marriage

North Carolina has become the 31st state to vote to amend its constitution to limit marriage to one man and one woman.

As is the norm in places where the people have actually been permitted to vote on this matter, it passed by something like a two to one margin.In every one of the seven states where same sex marriage is legal, it has been down by state legislatures in Blue states or by judicial diktat.

Two other states will be voting on legalizing same sex marriage this November. Minnesota has a constitutional amendment on its ballot and Maine has a referendum to allow same-sex marriage. In Maryland and Washington state, there is a push to bring new laws allowing same-sex marriage before the voters...which I personally would be surprised to see happen.

Next stop, the Supreme Court where the NC law gets over turned. Same sex marriage will be the law of the land. I wish I could be more optimistic.

Just in case the Supreme Court does not work out or does not hear the case right away, Mr. Obama issues an executive order making the NC law null and void. Again, wish I could be more optimistice.

leftists repeatedly talk about democracy and human rights. Apparently they only support such things when it does not get in the way of the agenda.
