NC’s Amendment One: Are Social Conservatives Gambling With the Law of Unintended Consequences? « Mired in Liberty

Posted: May 7, 2012 in Child Welfare, Discrimination, Government, Political

Take a look at this blog from an Evangelical Christian.  He comes down AGAINST Amendment 1.  What I really like about his blog is it is not written like a scholar or legal expert, but as an American.  He writes as someone who has read the history of our country and understands the reasons the Founding Fathers decided on the course they took with regards to the Constitution and Human Rights.  The author understands that the religious do not have a monopoly on morality, and even that just because you may not be of the same faith, or of no faith at all, does not make you an immoral person.

Often times I hear the argument for immorality in regards to homosexual lifestyle and practices, religious views or lack of them and in doing so, the high and mighty display  a complete lack of those same morals, basic customs and courtesies, the and extension of human rights to those they feel are against their way of life.  In this regard immorality is an excuse used to mask the discomfort of change and the pain felt when you finally see your way of life is not necessarily the predominant way or that others, possibly in the majority may see things differently than you.

  1. Thanks for the link, I have been so preoccupied with other things I have totally neglected my blog. Sorry about the outcome of the vote, I was pretty stunned at the actual percentages. :/

    • I think the turnout had as much too do with those who would have been against it not being educated enough on it beforehand and not enough people against who were actually registered to vote. It was so downplayed until the last month and by then it was so convoluted that many people did not make the decision their conscience really should have helped them make.

      I look forward to seeing your posts in the future, I have been pretty busy myself lately too.
