  1. North Carolina is one of the 13 states that fought to keep slavery of blacks in America and it seems they now want to make slaves of the LGBT people. Needless to say they claim to be very Christian just like the white slave masters who wanted to keep black people slaves in America.

    This is funny, It sure sound like one of thopse states that would love to introduce slavery again, but this time the want any one who is gay, you see the real reason is you cannot rape a slave, because they are just livestock, so if they take away gay rights and enslave gay people they can have gay sex with their livestock. damm ick people . the best part is they claim to be christian, but dont know the first thing about equal rights and loving each other as per the instructions given by christ

  3. While I expect ultimately North Carolina will have same-sex marriage, it would be so wonderful if this amendment is voted down this year so we can watch the radical right’s head explode. All those closet cases running the Family Research Counsel and the National Orgainization for Marriage will be sent into a screaching rage…

    Gee, I’m almost ready to forgive them for what they did to the econlmy.

  5. Good on this woman for speaking out. Perhaps the Bank of America could move out of state to a more tolerant one?

  6. There’s an important development with the forced disclosure of documents by anti-gay hate group NOM in the US, which includes revealing some of their tactics in Europe.

    Such as the deliberate cultivation of victimhood stories, not just for the benefit of Europeans, but for how they play back home in the US (CI maybe?).

    Or the deliberate sowing of division on the internet between LGBTs and other minority groups such as blacks.

    See the full article on Box Turtle Bulletin. Sorry I don’t have the link right now.

    1. See page 14 of the third document – their international strategy. There it is in black and white. What many suspected, formally confirmed. And really not much to do with marriage, more to do with doing away with gay rights altogether. Worldwide.

    2. Here I the link to the PDF documents, I’ve only looked at the 3rd one, in particular its international strategy section, so far.

      I suggest anyone interested download all the PDFs to see how it affects our part of the world.

    3. Well, they seem to have the Telegraph on board with the international strategy these days, knowingly or not.

    Can I have some of the $50,000 budgeted for the “Catholic Clergy Project”? I promise to be very anti- gay and use words like “grotesque” as much as possible in a gay context.

      See the second NOM document disclosed here:

  8. Well lets see, BOA opens accounts to illegal aliens with either no id or stolen id. Goldman Sachs was instrumental in the housing nightmare and what turned into the economy collapse. Don’t know how good these two are for the cause. The lady from BOA seems like she is ok, just not the company.

  9. I live in Alabama — (Need I say more?) These people who promote bigotry in the guise of Christianity are more akin to fascists than anything else. They think that tolerance of different people is gonna ruin the world and promote some kind of “paranoid” agenda. The biggest threat to marriage is divorce. Of course having a 45% divorce rate and the highest domestic violence rate in the U.S. is more of a threat than equal marriage. I’m gay in a 17 yr relationship and Christian. I think it’s a shame that people would rather worry about what people do in their private lives to the point of passing “Jim Crow” like laws. “Separate but equal” has never worked for anyone anywhere–it’s just another type of ignorance and intolerance that excludes people and promotes extremism. The fact that it is portrayed as Christian-like is insulting and doesn’t even merit remark from me. People who want a theocracy should move to Iran where one resides.

    1. Looks like Alabama could benefit from having your intellect in the State House!
