bc of what got passed today...

here are my personal thoughts, and I'm not just concerened about the Same-sex marriage, It goes alot deeper than that and honestly I'm more frightened by the fact that it seems like so many people just saw "make same-sex marriage illegel" and didnt research deeper to see how else this might effect people.

I can understand the "it's a sin" based on your religion and I respect that truly I do, But a church has the right to refuse to Marry anyone... So why is it so hard for them to be able to go down to the courthouse and get married? America was not founded on christianity there is no reason for religious views to be taking over the goverment and forcing people to live the christian way if that is not how they want to. Why is it anyone's concern if they are together? Why does it effect their belief so much? Will it make them less of a Christian for letting others live their life happy?

 No one has to take religion out of everything but there is no reason to force others religious beliefs upon others... That is my issue... The main issue with same-sex marriages is opposed by christians which is fine, thats their beliefs but there is No reason to make their religious beliefs a law and force others to follow those beliefs.... God loves us unconditionally he doesn't say "clean up your act and then I will love you. Romans 5:8, "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." In this verse and in John 3:16, we find no conditions placed on God's love for us

This amendment changed absolutely nothing. The laws are no different now than yesterday. This was just something for candidates to try to sway people with.

the Treaty of Tripoli is a good reference to the founding fathers did not find our goverment on Christianty

"As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion; as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquillity, of Musselmen; and as the said States never have entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mehomitan nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries

have you read any of those links i posted? or the info about how this could effect many people besides gays?

like children, the eldery and even possiably domestic abuse? luckily the 50B laws are worded well. Hopefully this amendment will not be able to change how they are interpreted. and truly effect that.

Civil unions have never been recognized in NC. LOL It's technically illegal to live together before marriage here.
