It seems that the good God-bothering people of North Carolina have passed "Amendment 1," so that marriage is officially limited to traditional s/hemale unions and ban any other type of domestic legal union. Apparently it's still OK for right-handed people to marry right-handed people and left-handed people to marry left-handed people, as long as they're not of the same sex . . .
I still don't see how this doesn't violate the First Amendment of the US Constitution . . .
And the hypocrisy is mind-bending. The same people who voted for this amendment got their knickers all in a twist about a law which mandated phasing out incandescent light bulbs. According to them, the government doesn't have any business telling people what kind of light bulbs they can buy, but it certainly can tell them who they must and must not marry.
This is the twenty-first century, people! The Iron Age ended 2500 years ago. Catch up!
