Audio: NC anti-equality voice: Pro-equality generation will be 'last generation on the face of this Earth'

by Jeremy Hooper

Amendment One supporter Ron Baity, taking a break from implying that gays are worse than maggots or likening homosexuality to something like murder, recently went on local television to tell people why, exactly, they should change North Carolina's *civil* marriage laws. The reason? To save the human race, natch:


[WXII 12]

See, I see it differently, Mr. Baity. I think if people like you keep sharing the true colors that we "culture war" watchers know to underly the civil marriage equality opposition movement, this will be the "last generation on the face of this Earth" that has to listen to such nonsensical claims about our shared spectrum of life. So by that, I of course mean—don't ever lower your voice!

On that non-lowered-voice note: Tomorrow, this same Ron Baity will host a mega marriage amendment rally in Raleigh. Let's hope, for civil marriage equality's sake, that he again tells the gathered public about how he wants us to "quit being homos."

**Oh, and I predict that the official campaign will try to distance itself from Baity, should some insightful comments come out of tomorrow's rally. If/when that happens, don't you buy it for even a second! Baity has been entrenched in all of this for years now, with his annual rallies attracting all of the same key luminaries—lawmakers, politicos, national figures, etc—who are working on the current Vote For Marriage NC campaign.

In fact, here's current campaign head Tami Fitzgerald touting Baity's virtues just two years ago:

If there's forced distance among the camps now, it's only because the bright campaign lights are on (a pattern we've seen in several other states during ballot time).
