CREDIT:

Over the past few weeks, numerous North Carolina groups and leaders have spoken out against the proposed constitutional amendment that would ban same-sex marriage, civil unions, and domestic partnerships. On Friday, Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton (D) announced his opposition to Amendment One, a reversal of his 2005 cosponsorship of a similar amendment in the state senate. He admitted, “Perhaps I was wrong back then.” Among other groups that have come out against the measure are the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina, North Carolina Advocates for Justice,¬†and the student senate of North Carolina Central University, one of the state’s 11 historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs).
