Though the result in the North Carolina anti-gay marriage amendment is not a surprise, it still pisses me off. As much that it was put on the ballot in the first place as that it passed. In a state where it was already impossible for same-sex couples to get married, an unnecessary--and unnecessarily mean-spirited--amendment was put on the ballot. Will it create jobs? Will it have positive economic impact? Will it help the old, the sick, the infirm or anybody else?
The answer is an emphatic no to all of the above. It was put on the ballot by busybodies who are confused about the difference between holy matrimony and civil marriage. They are confused about the separation of church and state. And they've embarrassed themselves now and in the history books. They've written discrimination into their state constitution. Shameful. Disgusting. Mean. Predictable.
