I live in north carolina in which our "amendment one" passed
amendment one is an amendment saying that the NC government will not recognize ANY
unions unless the couple is a married man and woman.
this also excludes people whom are straight and just can't afford a marriage license who used to be recognized by the government.
The arguments from people for it that i have read:
1: Homosexuality is bad because the bible says so
2: homosexuals would be harmful to children and force them to suffer in school
3: Homos are bad
Arguments from people who are against it:
1: It is unfair for the government to say whom we can and cannot love and to prevent us from the benefits that married couples get because we are too poor to purchase those rights through a more powerful union
2: It is proven that in schools that kids raised in a homosexual environment actually do very slightly better in grades than those in heterosexual families.
3: This doesn't just effect homosexuals, but heterosexuals as well
4: If we put this amendment through, it would be taught in our schools and that would create even more stress and strain because children who live in homosexual environments or claim to be homosexual themselves would become the victims of bullies whom justify their actions by saying "well its illegal so we can do this since you're not legal"
there are a few more arguments from the against side that i can't recall right as of this moment
honestly guys, i may seem biased on this issue but on the news they were doing interviews on the people whom voted for and against it and one of the guys who voted for it literally said
"my family don't believe homosexuals are natural and that's what i believe ad that is why i supported and voted for this amendment"
i fucking hate the "christians" in the rural areas because they are uneducated brainwashed individuals whom won't listen to all the reason why this amendment is bad
and i say "christians" because these are the people to claim they love the bible and follow it by heart but yet still have sex without marriage, use contraception, do drugs, steal, and many more things of that nature.
i respect their choices but i still find them complete ignorant morons whom are closed minded and cannot listen to others arguments.
A shitty amendment got voted for and is now onto the next step
urg i am so upset!!!!! >:C
