NORTH CAROLINA: FRC Launches Anti-Gay Marriage Radio Campaign
The Family Research Council, an SPLC-certified hate group whose president once gave $82,000 to the Ku Klux Klan, has launched an anti-gay marriage radio campaign in North Carolina, where a constitutional ban will be voted on this Tuesday. Twelve different versions of the ad, each with the endorsement of a different local GOP official, are being broadcast.
Marriage is at risk in our state. Our laws defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman could be overturned. Marriage between one man and one woman benefits families in society so we must preserve the marriage laws in our state Constitution. On September 12, the North Carolina Legislature will vote on putting a marriage amendment to a vote of the people. Powerful voices in our state capitol are threatening your right to vote on marriage. Take a stand for marriage. Call [your representative] and ask [them] to vote yes to the marriage amendment. It’s not about party, it’s about marriage. And on September 12, join us for a rally supporting marriage at11 a.m.in front of the legislative building in Raleigh. Bring a sign and take a stand for marriage.VIDEO: At a press conference apparently meant to ridicule homosexuals, one local elected official held up a lock and a key to demonstrate the "essential inability" of gay people to "consummate a marriage."
