Pro-Prop 8 Witness Comes Out Against Amendment One in North Carolina
David Blankenhorn and Elizabeth Marquardt, both Southerners, are not marriage equality advocates, mind you, but they draw the stark distinction between "protecting marriage" and Amendment One's purposeful, hateful denial of any legal recognition of the relationships of same-sex couples. They draw a line in the sand in a News & Observer op-ed.

As I have repeatedly reminded peeps following what is going on here in North Carolina, Amendment One is not about marriage equality. It's not on the ballot, and it isn't on any legislative agenda on the horizon in this state. It's already against state law; the mini-DOMA has not been challenged. We don't expect to see marriage equality here until the day the U.S. Supreme Court strikes down the current federal law.

Amendment One is about denying any legal recognition that municipalities and counties would like to extend to same-sex couples, and will actually nullify the domestic partnership measures in place. It will create legal chaos over its muddy language when it comes to any private arrangements.
