How North Carolina Mucked Everything Up

Becky Garrison: On May 8, 2012, with 2,136,277 votes cast, 61% of voters in North Carolina voted in favor of an amendment that makes “marriage between one man and one woman… the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in this state.” While North Carolina already has a law prohibiting same-sex marriage, Republicans deemed this vote necessary to ensure that the law could not be struck down by “activist” judges.

With this amendment’s passage, North Carolina becomes the 31st state to pass an amendment upholding “traditional marriage.” The Pew Center for the States reports that “a similar ban is on the ballot later this year in Minnesota. In four other states, supporters of gay marriage are on the offensive.

In Maryland and Washington, voters may be asked to decide whether to allow new laws permitting same-sex marriage to take effect, although neither measure has not qualified for the ballot yet. And in Maine, a citizen initiative later this year would authorize gay marriage. Proponents are trying to get a similar proposal on the ballot in Ohio.” An infographic map charting the state of gay marriage in the United States can be found on their website.

The New York Times outlined the concern, raised by a group of family law professors from across the state, that this vague language could also apply to the more than 150,000 straight couples in the state who live together but are unmarried. The amendment could also invalidate domestic-violence protections, undercut child custody arrangements and jeopardize hospital visiting rights.”

Here is what you do. Governor. When you encounter a group that is jobless hit them with the marriage is a man and a woman thing. Then instead of talking on, pause and stare at them with a quizzical expression on your face. Suggesting sympathy. Stay cool. When the media ask you what was up in there, you say, Listen, I never pull any punches. I am the same yesterday today and tomorrow. Then stare at them. And before they can come back at you, drop few choice expletives they will have to bleep. This will establish you immediately as the front runner.  You will feel a catharsis and experience a month of self-satisfied chuckles.
