North Carolina Marriage Amendment: For or Against?

     The 2011 General Assembly approved a measure (session law 2011-409) that would put language into the NC Constitution related to legally recognized marriages in the state.  The proposed Amendment to article 14 of the NC constitution would add a new section, to be called section 6.  It would read as follows:

Section 6 Marriage
Marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in this state.  This section does not prohibit a private party from entering into contracts with another private party; nor does this section prohibit courts from adjudicating the rights of private parties pursuant to such contracts.

    My question to all of my readers are, are you for this amendment or against it and why?  I don't normally get into political battles in my blog but I feel strong about this one and thought I would share my opinion.

     Leviticus 20:13 says: If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination:  they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

     I was raised in church and taught that man marry woman and that you stay within your race.  That being said I have 2 biracial nieces and a biracial nephew.  So I am not so dumb as to think of them different and they are very much accepted into my home like anyone else.  I also have family members that believe they love the same sex much more than the opposite when it comes to marriage, however even they know and understand that I don't approve of it but think no different of them.  I love all of my family regardless of what decisions they make in life and hope and pray that they understand where I come from.

    So again I ask where do you stand and why?  I only ask that if you do leave a comment here that you keep it clean and without foul language!  This is a family oriented site and I will delete any comment that decides to use foul language.  Thank you for understanding and please I would like your feedback...
