    This bill also declares women who are not married cannot file for domestic abuse. So now in NC, it's basically legal to beat your girlfriend.



    Right wing Christians are such wonderful people.

    First of all, the civil rights of a minority shouldn't be put up to vote by the majority. EVER.

    Second, this amendment doesn't just hurt gay couples, it also makes it almost impossible for women who aren't married to file for domestic abuse/violence. So if a boyfriend beats his girlfriend she won't be able to file for domestic violence.

    It disgusts me that people would vote for something like this. This amendment doesn't help anyone.

    I'm glad that this topic is getting so much debate, as I was pretty sure it would. I agree with many of you, others .....not so much.

    NC is where California was in 1996. Just shows how far behind the times they are.

    Even if you have different beliefs on marriage, gay couples should DEFINITELY be able to form as a civil union. Banning civil unions, and therefore banning rights and benefits from gay couples is simply discrimination.

    They didn't ban gay marriage they defined marriage as between one man and one woman.

    Wow. That BM dude (bowel movement?) has me blocked though I don't recall "meeting" him--but "get over yourselves before we take that away"???

    As he is a person of color--Pacific Islander, by his own admission, I guess he's too ignorant to see the slippery slope. 50 years ago, he would have had a really hard time marrying a white person. Thank goodness his people "got over themselves" (with the help of the black community) so that we didn't "take that away".

    Please let him know, Antonio. And keep fighting the good fight, cutie.

    Funny you should use the term "slippery slope".

    Because when you change the definition of traditional marriage that's exactly where you're going...down the slippery slope.
  • melly~t... Gracie ... 2012/05/10 02:40:35
    melly~thwarting Satan since 1971
    Who defined that? And how does the fact that most marriages end in divorce NOT change the "defi ition of traditional marriage"?
  • Gracie ... melly~t... 2012/05/10 03:30:22
    Gracie - Proud Conservative
    Divorce doesn't change the intent of marriage, which is to pro-create in a stable family environment. The main purpose of gay marriage is for the benefits, not so they don't sin before God!
  • melly~t... Gracie ... 2012/05/10 04:49:29
    melly~thwarting Satan since 1971
    No--the main purpose of gay marriage is to create a family. Same as straight marriage.

    God gives free will.

    You can't "create" a family with the same sex.

    Neither can infertile couples. They shouldn't be allowed to marry?

    And gay people have children all the time.
  • Gracie ... melly~t... 2012/05/10 19:53:02

    We're talking about the original intention of marriage not the outcome of every marriage. Gay people don't have children without someone else impregnating or carrying one for them. I've had one for a gay man but he forgot to tell me he was gay before he married me and had a child. He was working on getting another when I found out.

    the purpose of marriage, i thought....was love...because many people procreate out of marriage, so...there is a flaw in your argument
  • Gracie ... MDMA 2012/05/10 16:55:37
    Gracie - Proud Conservative
    The original purpose was to procreate. It wasn't always about love, although it should be. Procreating outside of marriage is less than ideal. There used to be this moral idea that you didn't have sex outside of marriage but we've so "evolved", right?

    you mean because we don't burn people for heresy anymore? and because we want to add to the 7 billiion people already on the planet and cause more stress on the planet? seems apt to me

    They do burn homosexuals in countries that we're placating right now. I saw a video of them pushing them into a pit and setting them on fire. It was very disturbing but I've yet to see too many homosexuals worried about Sheria Law creeping into America. Weird.

    I guess you're talking about how great it is that we murder the unborn instead of letting them live?

    human being being someone fully formed right? a clump of cells, is just that, a clump of cells...the same way and egg is simply an egg until it hatches
  • Gracie ... MDMA 2012/05/12 02:50:00

    No, it's life when it grows. You wouldn't consider a child a clump of cells until it's full grown would you? Is a chick only life when it's a rooster?
