Tillis clarifies position on Amendment One prediction and government intrusion (video)

House Speaker Thom Tillis found himself inundated with questions Tuesday after telling a group of N.C. State students that he believes if Amendment One passes, it will be repealed within 20 years.

Opponents of the anti-gay marriage amendment wondered on several social media sites –  if that’s the case, then why attempt to write discrimination into the state’s constitution in the first place?

Tillis tells WRAL-TV it’s “absolutely” appropriate to vote on the issue May 8th, because this generation wants to vote on the issue.

You can watch the short video below, then be sure to read today’s Fitzsimon File “The maddening illogic of Thom Tillis.”

Also check out just below the video, the graphic from Protect NC Families that shows how the marriage amendment will appear on the ballot, along with 10 facts about the initiative that opponents of Amendment One believe some voters may be unaware of.
