Soapbox Friday?!

March 9, 2012

It’s Friday, so I don’t want anyone to have to start thinking just before the weekend, but bear with me for a quick second.  There’s a funny (and loosely related) video at the end of this, I promise.

As I hope most folks in North Carolina are aware by now, there is a proposed amendment to the North Carolina Constitution that, if passed, would institutionalize hatred, bigotry, and homophobia by defining marriage in the narrowest possible terms:  “Marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in this State.” 

If pressed, I could wax eloquent about all the outrageous implications of this proposed amendment, but there are a lot of folks out there who are already doing just that, and doing a better job of it than I could.

So, I’ll just boil it down: this amendment is total bullshit and anything less than a wholesale rejection of Amendment One on May 8th would be appalling.

You can also help raise awareness by attending Saturday night’s dance party/fundraiser at OCSC in Carrboro.

And now, a funny video from Dan Savage to Rick Santorum:
