On Tuesday, voters in North Carolina will head to the polls. They will address an anticlimactic presidential race and choose congressional nominees.
But the biggest item on the ballot is a state constitutional amendment to define marriage in the Tar Heel State as only the union of one man and one woman.
Kami Mueller of Vote for Marriage North Carolina reveals why the issue is heading to the ballot now and tells us precisely what language is being considered. Mueller also discusses the additional language that would be codified so the amendment could not be used to limit private contracts.
“Every child is a product of their mother and their father and this is the only union that exists that accurately and efficiently rears children to be successful and participating citizens in our state and our country,” Mueller told WND.
She details how pro-gay groups are employing “smokescreens” and “confusion” to grow opposition to the plan. Mueller also touches upon why the poll numbers give her reason to be optimistic about Tuesday’s and she reacts to GOP Rep. Renee Ellmers’ surprising announcement that she opposes the amendment because it does not allow for civil unions.
