NC legislators put marriage to the voters

The voters in another state, this time North Carolina, will get a chance to protect marriage with a constitutional amendment on the ballot next November. In 2008, the Tarheel State voted for President Obama who opposes any and all marriage amendments.  Yet the North Carolina House and Senate overwhelmingly approved the marriage amendment, meeting the daunting requirement of a three-fifths majority.

“The big lie in politics is that the marriage fight is over,” writes Brian Brown of the National Organization for Marriage. “But this vote proves once again the pundits are wrong, the people want the right to decide the future of marriage.”

Our sister organization, the North Carolina Family Policy Council, along with Family Research Council, North Carolina Values Coalition and NOM worked hard to make this a reality. We congratulate all North Carolinians who will now, unlike the voters of Massachusetts, have the power to protect marriage in their state constitution.
