North Carolina voters have passed a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage today via a statewide ballot measure, according the Associated Press.
North Carolina already had a statute banning gay marriage. Amendment One declares that “marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in this state”— vague language that opponents say could threaten domestic partnership protections for all couples while closing the door to any sort of same-sex unions.

Now ain't that calling the kettle black! Sorry but with every post you crap out it reeks with hatred toward the gay community! It's a sad day for our Constitution but it is only one battle and not the war! If you have any kind of insight you would know that eventually in our lifetime there will be equality for all Americans and that includes the millions of gay Americans who are being denied their Constitutional rights! You are ignorant and clueless! Must be one of those phony Christians who doesn't follow what your savior teaches! Pathetic!

The gay population in North Carolinian will stay in North Carolina. It's just now they are second class citizens under the new Jim Crow laws the Republicans imposed on the state. KKKristians continue their crusade against gays.

Here's what's wrong: when you meatheads use data about lesbians to make claims about gay men. You try to get away with all the time. You do it with marriage data -- "Studies show lesbians make good parents; ergo, gay men will make good parents too."

Well, that's not science; that's stupidity.

America is far behind Canada when it comes to gay marriage. In 2005 every single state and territory in Canada legalized gay marriage. We are apposed to be land of the free yet we deny LGBT couples equal rights.

Did you see the beating that the gay community took from the APA?

APA revises 'gay gene' theory - admits it's not a psychological disorder
« on: May 14, 2009, 11:42:32 AM »

http://www.onenewsnow.com/Culture/Default.asp...

The attempt to prove that homosexuality is determined biologically has been dealt a knockout punch. An American Psychological Association publication includes an admission that there's no homosexual "gene" -- meaning it's not likely that homosexuals are born that way.

For decades, the APA has not considered homosexuality a psychological disorder, while other professionals in the field consider it to be a "gender-identity" problem. But the new statement, which appears in a brochure called "Answers to Your Questions for a Better Understanding of Sexual Orientation & Homosexuality," states the following:

"There is no consensus among scientists about the exact reasons that an individual develops a heterosexual, bisexual, gay or lesbian orientation. Although much research has examined the possible genetic, hormonal, developmental, social, and cultural influences on sexual orientation, no findings have emerged that permit scientists to conclude that sexual orientation is determined by any particular factor or factors. Many think that nature and nurture both play complex roles...."

That contrasts with the APA's statement in 1998: "There is considerable recent evidence to suggest that biology, including genetic or inborn hormonal factors, play a significant role in a person's sexuality."

Peter LaBarbera, who heads Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, believes the more recent statement is an important admission because it undermines a popular theory.

"People need to understand that the 'gay gene' theory has been one of the biggest propaganda boons of the homosexual movement over the last 10 [or] 15 years," he points out. "Studies show that if people think that people are born homosexual they're much less likely to resist the gay agenda."

Matt Barber with Liberty Counsel feels the pronouncement may have something to do with saving face. "Well, I think here the American Psychological Association is finally trying to restore some credibility that they've lost over the years by having become a clearly political organization as opposed to an objective, scientific organization," he states.(Hear audio report)

With the new information from the APA, Barber wonders if the organization will admit that homosexuals who want to change can change.

"It's irrefutable from a medical standpoint that people can leave the homosexual lifestyle," he argues. "Homosexuality is defined by behavior. Untold thousands of people have found freedom from that lifestyle through either reparative therapy or through -- frankly, most effectively -- a relationship with Jesus Christ."
