Rev. William Barber, NAACP President, Speaks Out Against Amendment One (by ProtectNCFamilies)
ATTENTION: TUMBLR USERS IN NORTH CAROLINA
The North Carolina General Assembly has introduced a constitutional amendment to the North Carolina State Constitution which would “provide that marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in this State.”
Voting on the amendment is at the 2012 PRIMARY on MAY 8th, not in November.
Aside from the obvious discriminatory nature of the amendment, it is poorly worded and thought out and would harm the rights of ALL couples.
Remember to vote ‘AGAINST’ this amendment.

Mom: So, you know I’m voting against the amendment, right?
Me: Yes. I asked you both to, though I figured you would anyway.
Mom: I have to admit, I didn’t know much about it. Just what you told me. So, I finally went and read it.
Mom: Who the fuck thought this piece of shit was a good idea?! I mean it looks like people throwing their religious beliefs at the state. Who the fuck cares? Whatever happened to the separation of church and state?! It effects so much more than just marriage defining, like that’s not wrong in the first place. This is some bullshit.
Me: …Love you, mom.
My unaffiliated, right-wing parents…man, I love them. So many hearts.
This is by far one of the coolest and most creative ways to tell people to #voteagainst! Awesome!
