North Carolinians Should Vote For Amendment One Today


“At 93, I never thought we would have to debate the definition of marriage. The Bible is clear — God’s definition of marriage is between a man and a woman. I want to urge my fellow North Carolinians to vote for the marriage amendment on Tuesday, May 8. God bless you as you vote.” — Billy Graham

North Carolinians will vote on Amendment One today. If it passes, the following section will be added to North Carolina’s constitution.

Marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in this State. This section does not prohibit a private party from entering into contracts with another private party; nor does this section prohibit courts from adjudicating the rights of private parties pursuant to such contracts.

The good news is that even the left-wing pollsters at PPP show that the Amendment has the “support of 55 percent of the state’s voters, with 39 percent against.” That means there’s an excellent chance the Amendment One is in good shape, but of course, it’s never smart to count your chickens before they’re hatched.

Now, some people have said that conservatives should oppose Amendment One because if it passes, it would make civil unions impossible. Theoretically, I’d be fine with civil unions as an alternative to gay marriage, but it’s a moot point at this stage of the game. The people pushing for gay marriage in this country don’t consider civil unions to truly be an acceptable alternative. So, why torpedo an amendment that can protect marriage for an option that’s considered a stepping stone to gay marriage by left-wing activists at best and a hate crime at worst?

I think every North Carolinian should vote for Amendment One. That’s the right thing to do, the Christian thing to do, and one of the best things that can be done to protect marriage in the state.
