RALEIGH, N.C. — North Carolina's unique position in the South on gay marriage is bringing supporters and opponents of a constitutional amendment to Raleigh.
Christian conservatives will hold their biennial rally Tuesday morning in support of an amendment banning gay marriage. The rally organized by the Winston-Salem group Return America attracted thousands of people in 2007 and 2009.
North Carolina is the only Southeastern state that hasn't approved an amendment restricting marriage to one man and one woman.
Earlier Tuesday, faith leaders will explain why they're opposed to the amendment and how it could prohibit all legal recognition for gay and lesbian couples.
Democrats had blocked a legislative vote on the amendment for years. The new Republican-led legislature has expressed interest in putting the question to voters. from WRAL
Is Sodom and Gomorrah coming to North Crolina?
Here is my take, God Created man and woman so that they might through his grace naturally conceive children to worship Him, because He loves us.
There is no such a right to mariage. The law is fair. I can not marry a man and my wife cannot marry a woman. Anything which requires a license or a permit is a privelige not a right. Making the population accept same sex marriage does not make it moral. Morality is an act, a statement, or a thing from which no evil may be derived.
...This confusion is enhanced by use of the vocabulary of the sodomites that would anesthetize society into believing that there is something "gay" about some of the filthiest unnatural acts that man can do...more.
