Pink, luckily, even Obama did not say that gay "marriage" was a civil right. So yeah, states can feel free to "ban" gay "marriage". Of course, the accurate way of putting it is that states can affirm the definition of a word that has had the same meaning for thousands of years up until the lunatics started tearing down every tradition and institution that has made this country great.

5Cats & AJ - correct. Gay marriage was already banned. This amendment reinforced that ban, but also put a stop to any "seperate but equal" domestic partnerships as well. So gay people basically cannot have any kind of relationship.

Jesus! Save me from your followers!

For all the haters: @AJ has pointed out that the bill was a "Trojan Horse" it carried with it many BAD new rules, hidden behind the "Gay Marriage" part.
OK?
People opposed a BILL, not the concept of one part of that bill.

LOLZ! @TruTenrMan:
*keeps his opinions on this matter to himself so as not to cause a poo-storm.*
(it's the very first comment)

I think poo storms will happen at IAB no matter what.

NC is exercising its right as a state to pass its own marriage laws, if you don't agree with it I would advise not moving to NC instead of getting offended.


This logic is so faulty it`s sad. You wouldn`t say that if NC voted women couldn`t vote or that black men couldn`t use the same fountains and it passed by majority. Majority voting means jacksh*t when it involves impeding someone elses civil rights.
