voting against amendment one – north carolina

On May 8th the entire state gets to waste its time to vote on a constitutional amendment that will discriminate against me and many others.

Let's END THOSE WARS and do something about the economy, rather than proposing constitutional amendments designed to f*** with people.

So today we went to a fundraiser car wash for We Are NC. The truck got clean, we had a good time, and we left some cash!

First, a video with lots of wonderful local people from around my hometown: Greensboro, North Carolina.

Some pictures from today follow:

Our yard sign.

  1. What's the sens to this amendment ? I posed this question because here, i not lesson speak

  2. Typical! The economy is in tatters and all they can put time and energy into is essentially discrimination. At least Mussolini made the trains run on time :whistle:

  3. Ok, it is piteous and sad ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  4. That has got to be the most clever advertisement in the history of advertising.

  5. North Carolina deserves the usual kick in the ass for this one. Even the current mayor of Greensboro, a Republican, is against it and is willing to spend some political capital to speak out against it.

  6. Good things, Joshua :up:

  7. In my opinion, it should not be a government's business whether one is married or not. All they need to know is whether a hetero/homosexual couple comprise a social unit or not for purely legal purposes, like inheritance and child care. Marriage has always been associated with a more religious ideal for couples and should be couples' business only, especially in USA with its the separation of church and state. Am I making sense?

    Makes sense, and I say that as a practicing Christian. I don't believe that religion and politics should be mixed. Jesus said, "Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's" (Matthew chapter 22 verse 21) when he explained that he would not give any teachings that would be in direct opposition to the law of the land. He was talking specifically about tax at this point.By the way, those people who say that amendments such as this are a religious duty prescribed by the Bible – they're wrong. I can argue why that's wrong. However, all I'll say is that you don't need to consult the Bible to realise that any laws that needlessly discriminate are surely contrary to the teachings of Jesus. Man, I should control my rants sometimes!

  9. Thanks, Harry. And this is why I cannot vote in good conscience for any of the candidates. :down:

  10. Keep it up … you sound much better that the countdown on my radio.I have always believed the world is being conditioned for a world order with pple rights 'lacking freedom' in political correctness. ๐Ÿ˜†
