NYT: Amendment 1 crafters were 'careless' with always-careless notion that is discrimination
The New York Times editorial board gets it:
In their zeal, [North Carolina] lawmakers got careless with the wording of the measure, known as Amendment One. It would constitutionally prohibit recognition not just of same-sex marriages, but of other legal arrangements like civil unions and domestic partnerships. That could harm all unmarried couples, imperiling some children’s health insurance benefits, along with child custody arrangements and safeguards against domestic violence.
