♪ 'In [their] mind, I'm going to [destroy] Carolina' ♪

by Jeremy Hooper

The Family Research Council (a SPLC-designated "hate group") has unleashed onto North Carolina a series of radio ads all geared towards writing abject discrimination into the state's governing documents The script reads:

Marriage is at risk in our state. Our laws defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman could be overturned. Marriage between one man and one woman benefits families in society so we must preserve the marriage laws in our state Constitution.

On September 12, the North Carolina Legislature will vote on putting a marriage amendment to a vote of the people. Powerful voices in our state capitol are threatening your right to vote on marriage. Take a stand for marriage. Call [your representative] and ask [them] to vote yes to the marriage amendment. It’s not about party, it’s about marriage.

And on September 12, join us for a rally supporting marriage at11 a.m.in front of the legislative building in Raleigh. Bring a sign and take a stand for marriage.

Meanwhile, in parts of the state not caught up in ridiculous "culture wars," actual risks are being accurately assessed, so that we might help this troubled nation by focusing on that while is truly troubling it.

Shame on FRC for the wanton bias. Shame on FRC for the anti-intellectual misfocus. Both put us *all* at risk.
