Oh look, a state marriage campaign proves its true agenda goes further -- NC edition

by Jeremy Hooper

On March 28, the official campaign to ban marriage in North Carolina was all kinds of excited about a campaign event held at the Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. The campaign tweeted excited messages throughout the day...

…and shared triumphant photos from both inside and outside the service:

So what exactly was the message that this, the campaign that's supposedly focus only on marriage, was rallying behind on this day? Oh. Well. For one, those in attendance rallied around professional "ex-gay" Tim Wilkins' idea that homosexuality will be downgraded to a mere "temptation," the way the planet Pluto was removed of its status:

Tami Fitzgerald, the head of the Vote For Marriage NC campaign, spoke just minutes later. You can watch the full thing here.

In the meantime, please make sure that anyone of voting age who you know lives within the state of North Carolina is aware of the clearly anti-gay (not "protect marriage) agenda that is on the ballot this May 8th. They want to downgrade us, folks. That goes way beyond politics.
