Re: “On a dark day for N.C., Amendment 1 passes

It was a sad day indeed--and I regret that those of us against Amendment One were not able to get people to understand what they were really voting into law. I kept wondering why the messages against it were so vague when so much was at stake. I think the civil unions issue should have been pushed harder--sure, the motive behind this hateful legislation was primarily ant-gay, but the goal was to defeat it, right?

And it was all about religion. Christianity, to be specific. The anti-amendment volunteers worked SO hard to defeat this, and a lot of money was donated for the cause--but ignorant, bigoted Christian fundamentalism won again in NC. It's time for Christian liberals to stop saying "Well, we're not like that" or "they misinterpret the bible"--and start fighting back against hate in the name of Jesus.

You nailed it with this analysis, Bob. Thanks so much--a keeper for discussions on future strategy.
