Tomorrow people in my state will vote on whether to extend their bigotry and hatred into the state's constitution, harming straight families and children in the process. Gay marriage is already banned in this state, but for organizations such as NOM, apparently that's not enough.
I know this seems like the farthest thing from what Occupy is fighting against, but bear with me. Amendment One is NOT about gay marriage. It is about control. A bunch of 1% policy makers are using their control over the Christian masses to take away others' civil rights. They want us to fight this war with each other over some works of fiction rather than focus our efforts on the corporations and politicians that are keeping our society suppressed.
Every major election has these fights, and they serve as a distraction for the 99%, so that we don't pay attention to the 1% puppet-masters that are controlling our lives from behind the scenes. The Bible, unfortunately, has been one of the ruling class' best tools to keep a population occupied with itself rather than its rulers.
Please take 10 minutes out of your day tomorrow and vote NO to this attack on all of our rights! You do NOT have to vote in either primary if you don't want to. You can just go in and vote on the amendment.
"President William Jefferson Clinton is the latest, and arguably the most significant luminary, to lend his voice to the cause of stopping North Carolina's proposed Amendment One to ban gay marriage, civil unions and any legal recognition of any non-married relationships.
The 42nd president of the United States has released a message of unequivocal condemnation that will be used by the Protect ALL NC Families campaign for automated voter calls. "
