How low will Amendment One supporters stoop?

Pretty low it would appear. When I visited the online editorial page of the Fayetteville Observer today, I saw an ad on the page in some big scary type that looked like it might go with some kind of horror movie. It read:

“SHOULD GAY MARRIAGE ACTIVISTS REDEFINE MARRIAGE FOR EVERYONE IN NORTH CAROLINA? TAKE THE POLL”

When you click on the “take the poll” button, you get redirected to a page that invites you to vote on the following question:

“YES: Gay Marriage Activists Should Redefine Marriage for Everyone
NO The Voters of North Carolina Should Define Marriage.”

Naturally, to “vote” you have to provide your name, email and zip code.

Of course, the whole thing is the work of the pro-discrimination forces at the the misnamed Vote for Marriage NC.

The questions that these troubled people refuse to answer are, of course:

1) How leaving the current ban on same sex marriage allows “gay marriage activists” to do anything and, even more importantly,

2) If same sex marriage or civil unions or domestic partnerships were ever legalized, how in the heck would that possibly have any impact at all on tha marriages of people who don’t want to enter into one?

    We are a secular society of 300 million diverse Americans, we are not subservient to ta cross, nor is government.

    The constitution has not defined marriage although it is a government institution concluded either by an government representative or a religious representative.

    “We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this constitution for the United States of America! Note: We the people, not the church, not a political party, not a business, not a lobbyist, not a religious group…..

    Amendment XIV, section 1: All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction therof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherin they reside. NO STATE shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

    I’ve seen ads like this on YouTube for over a week.

    Yeah — I’m sure I’ve been burying my head in the sand in hopes the darned thing would go away. This one just ticked me off.

    Well, maybe these ads will confuse their target audiences into actually voting NO on 1 come May 8. At least that seems to be the set-up they present: “NO The Voters of North Carolina Should Define Marriage.” That’s right, NO on Amendment 1!
