Leading NC conservative explains his opposition to marriage discrimination amendment
There are lots of things to disagree with John Hood about — even in the column in which he made spells out his postion on the marriage amendment. More on that later.
But the following statement from that column is certainly worth noting and sharing:
I think amending North Carolina’s constitution to forbid gay and lesbian couples from receiving any future legal recognition, including civil unions, is unwise and unfair. In my opinion the real threat to marriage is not the prospect of gay people getting hitched. It is the reality of straight people too quickly resorting to divorce, or never getting hitched in the first place.
