Amendment One in North Carolina Passes

Marriage between one man and one woman
               is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized

By the time you read this, Amendment One, which strengthens the ban on same-sex marriage and erodes state support of civil unions, will have passed in North Carolina — and likely by a fairly hefty margin.

How to account for the amendment’s popularity?

Maybe it’s sheer ignorance. As Wonkette notes,
the people fondest of the amendment (supporting it by the margin of 64
to 28) are those who admit they are not quite clear on what it does.

People leaving the polls admitted they were not really sure what it did – but they were told they should vote for it!
