Audio: Another Amendment 1 voice pushes 'God's definition'; straight atheists fear their marriages are next to be banned
An official Vote For Marriage NC robocall:
Of all of the things that are frustrating about this marriage debate (e.g. opposition's fear rhetoric; constantly accusing us of "hijacking" civil rights; making us seem threatening to kids; delaying access to the crass wedding registry booty that we modern, entitled Americans so rightfully deserve), there is no single element more exasperating than our opposition's insistence on having a wholly unrelated conversation about a facet of marriage that we are not challenging! Virtually every single civil marriage equality activist is more than ready, willing, and able to leave the optional religious ceremonial component to the churches. We more than respect our "culture war" opponents' right to hold on to whatever concrete definition they think God, during his apparent summer internship at Merriam-Webster, created for marriage. What we are talking about with Amendment 1, like all marriage fights, is the CIVIL marriage license/certificate that every single couple must obtain if said couple wants state/federal recognition. *THAT* is the conversation here, not the faith decision that is fully left up to the churches (even now, in terms of heterosexual couples).
And if our organized oppositional voices do want to make it all about "God's definition"? Well, then they need to stop obtaining the marriage license before heading to the church!
