Video: The increasingly obvious animus behind NC's marriage amendment

by Jeremy Hooper

Where does North Carolina's House Majority Leader turn when he needs to recruit support for marriage discrimination? Why he turns to the heads of two different SPLC-designated hate groups, natch:

When it comes to hostile rhetoric about LGBT themselves (not just their marriages), the Family Research Council and the American Family Association have few rivals. I'm not sure if North Carolina's top House Republican doesn't know that or just doesn't care. Though considering Rep. Stam has himself positioned same-sex marriage as just a hop and a skip away from legalized incest, I'm leaning towards the latter.

*Reminder: One of the other guys leading the fight in NC, Rev. Ron Baity, has uttered some of the most homo-hostile things imaginable.
