Assorted ninnies and white supremacists are attempting to deface the North Carolina Constitution with anti-gay graffiti via Amendment 1. There’s already no marriage equality in NC, but Amendment 1 is designed to keep same-sex couples in the back of the bus.
Here’s Balloon Juice commenter Jibeaux:
I assume if you’re reading B-J and live in NC that you know about Amendment One. If you’re reading B-J and do not live in NC but know anyone there, please nag them to vote against A1 or dialogue with them about it if they are on the fence. We could be—but are not poised to be—the first in the nation to reject an anti-gay marriage amendment. This amendment would go further than our current statutes and would prohibit recognition of any domestic union other than marriage. If passed, it will throw partner benefits and domestic abuse law into uncertain territory. We need to pull out all the stops on this, if you have any NC stops please get in touch. Thanks for listening.

Maggie Gallagher’s NOM outfit likes to brag that the anti-gay bigots always win on ballot measures (neglecting to add that many state voters would re-segregate schools if given the opportunity), and the polls don’t look good. But a big turnout by marriage equality supporters could send a huge message. Please do what you can to help.
