Tomorrow, there is a vote in North Carolina to pass what is called Amendment 1, which purports to make it part of the NC Constitution to never, ever allow gays to marry. I personally thinks that's awful enough, but just banning gay marriage doesn't scratch the surface of how terrible this bill really is. This is a Marriage Enforcement Act, and it will remove protections for every single unmarried woman in the state. If a lady is in an abusive relationship and not married, the law will not help her. If a male spouse dies, that woman will no longer receive pensions until she remarries. The list goes on. This bill is not anti-gay. Gay marriage is already illegal in NC. It is anti-feminist, and its authors have racist agendas. And the worst part, churches and advertisers all over the state are saying "It Is Your Duty to God" to vote this into law. If you live in NC, and can vote, or talk to people who can, help us!! Vote down this insipid, inhumane crap tomorrow!!

It's an anthropological thing. If they don't recognize it, it doesn't exist. There are other places that do recognize it.

It won't be long before we take that HATEFUL, arrogant, narcissistic, self serving, hypocritcal, fraudulant god DOWN!! Nope, not long at all. If satan exists, his name is god.

Best Answer

I'm not really trying to take down any gods, though I can appreciate your outrage! XD I just don't want people to hurt themselves in blind fervor over shock words.

Best Answer

" hurt themselves in blind fervor over shock words" Example?

Best Answer

Some people take their religion so seriously that when they have a chance to attack something it outlaws (gay marriage, etc) they leap into the fray without reading the fine print, which I what I think is happening here. I think shock words are used often to mobilize activists to do things that are actually self destructive.

Best Answer

I see. Hatred IS self destructive. These folks don't really need shock words to motivate their hatred for anyone who thinks and acts differently than they do.

Do guys get pension checks? If no, then that part of the law is ok. The rest of the bill is an abomination.

Best Answer

It only affects widows, to my knowledge.

Okay, then we have a discussion to have. Let's forget Gay Marriage for a minute. Even if it doesn't pass, Gays can't marry in this state. The bigger issue: Do you have daughters, sisters, mothers, or grandparents? Are you okay with the fact that if one of them is with a man who beats them on a daily basis, that the law won't help her unless she is married to him? We're talking dating as well! Are you okay with the fact that if your grandfather dies, that your grandmother will starve for honoring his memory and choosing not to wed another? Answer honestly.

Best Answer

No I wouldn't be alright with that, but I'm positive that this law you are stating isn't true.

Best Answer

Ok I read the whole thing, and you are taking it way out of proportion.

Best Answer

I appreciate you thinking critically, but I don't think I am taking this out of it's own size. I'm a history major, and the first thing to look for it where things repeat themselves. Previous instances of these things, sited in the link, have undermined domestic violence laws to the brink of disabling them. There are also sources published in the newspapers in this state that cite a racist agenda from the authors and some stronger proponents. While the woman in question has predictably denied this, some chief figures of this bill have mentioned the idea that the white race is in decline, and between the possibility of loosening domestic violence laws, reevaluating wills and last testaments, and the explicit changes to child support and custody, I think it's fair to say that some minority, and I'm not entirely sure which one, is being targeted. It's just that the targeting can be applied broadly.
