Last night North Carolina became the 3oth state in the country to approve a constitutional amendment defining “marriage” as a union between a man and a woman. NC law has already had a law banning gay marriage for the past 16 years, but Amendment One will include the specific definition of marriage to the state constitution. According to reports from 95 percent of counties, 61 percent of the votes supported Amendment One. Meanwhile, only six states — Massachusetts, New York, Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Iowa — plus the District of Columbia allow gay marriage. In response to the NC ban, President Obama’s campaign released a statement saying the president was “disappointed” in the outcome and found the amendment to be “divisive and discriminatory.”
