More According to the State Board of Elections website, with more than 600,000 votes counted, Amendment One had 55 percent voting for it and 44 percent voting against it. The amendment, if passed, would constitutionally make marriage between a man and a woman the only acceptable form of marriage.

Should have saved this one for November.
Some Liberal activist judge will over turn it.
all this will do is insure that Obama won’t openly support gay marriage until the day after the election.... along with reparations, banning guns, socialized medicine, 70% income tax bracket and everything he says he will never support.
Tea Party defeats teabaggers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So we just win in November. :) It’ll happen.
Look at Indiana...man, this is just MORE evidence America is sick of liberal politics and the culture of perversion.
Obama and Lugar represented BOTH...one just had a little more of a mask than the other.
We will take care of who trys.
Oh definitely. That is their next step. Always is. I wonder how they will address the civil unions. That is going to be interesting. A man and woman living together for 30 years will now be considered single. Changes taxes, wills, hospital visits, and all kinds of stuff. Although on a positive, if they are together for a long period and break up, they don’t have to pay or split anything. Some straight folks will find this a good thing especially those about to break up.
Thank You Jesus.
That makes no sense (as if!). If something is part of a constitution, then it must be, by definition, constitutional. It cannot be against itself.
I know, I know. You did qualify the judge as liberal, activist.
I feared the same but apparently this is an amendment to the state Constitution which means it isn’t necessarily up to a judge since the judge will have a difficult time interpreting a clearly worded passage the wrong way.
Polls show it will go over 60%. My liberal friends are in hiding over this one. Facebook is quiet.
Proud to be a native North Carolinian. Always. Maybe we can take it back.
Only a few municipalities have some form of “civil union” for unmarried couples, and none of those statutes has been in place very long. Unmarried romantic couples - or any group of two or more people who want a formal legal relationship, including inheritance, medical decision-making, and so forth - have the legal tools to do so irrespective of their unmarried status, and any competent estates attorney can arrange the legalities according to the specific needs of the people.
Tea Party wins!!!! teabaggers pack up their bags!!
We just got a email asking for prayer from a lady working near the polling place.
One of the Pro-Marriage Amendment ladies said “a young man approached me and introduced himself. He said his name was Tim Gold, and that Mitchell Gold was his “husband”. In case you don’t know who Mitchell Gold is, he’s a very wealthy homosexual activist in Hickory who owns a furniture company...(he said) “that he had dedicated his life to making me the most miserable person on the earth.”
“His parting comment is that I would be crushed by him and Mitchell Gold.”
Mitchell Gold is the founder of “Faith in America” a pro-homosexual activist group.
I think there may be some hope for North Carolina after all
