Marriage Amendment On the Ballot in NC – May 8, 2012

After an eight year legislative battle, the people of North Carolina will finally have the opportunity to vote on May 8, 2012 on a constitutional amendment preserving the institution of marriage as the union of one manand one woman.  The Marriage Protection Amendment (MPA) will ask voters to decide whether to add the following provision to the North Carolina Constitution:

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.”

With an increasing number of states redefining marriage to include same-sex couples, most recently the state of Washington, and homosexual activists continuing to push for laws and policies aimed at making it easier to one day legalize same-sex “marriage” here, there has never been a more important time for the people of North Carolina to vote on the MPA. The institution of marriage as the union of one man and one woman should be preserved through an amendment to the North Carolina State Constitution.
