New York Times editorial labels Amendment One “Bigotry on the Ballot”

 

 

It’s not just the local newspapers in North Carolina looking at Amendment One with a critical eye. Today,  The New York Times editorial board called the May 8th marriage amendment “Bigotry on the Ballot.”  Here’s an excerpt:

“In their zeal, lawmakers got careless with the wording of the measure, known as Amendment One. It would constitutionally prohibit recognition not just of same-sex marriages, but of other legal arrangements like civil unions and domestic partnerships. That could harm all unmarried couples, imperiling some children’s health insurance benefits, along with child custody arrangements and safeguards against domestic violence.”

    Alex, we have underestimated your silliness. The NYT has won more Pulitzers than any other news paper in history, 108 since 1918.
