Rmndr: Star same-sex marriage opponent David Blankenhorn says #Amendment1 is 'mean-spirited', 'likely to backfire'

by Jeremy Hooper
"Both ethically and politically, this approach seems to me to be a big mistake — another example of a take-no-prisoners, no- Dblankhorn compromise mentality that will likely come across to many in North Carolina and elsewhere as mean-spirited, and for that reason is likely to backfire sooner or later. An old race-horse gambler’s line is, “You can’t beat a horse with no horse.” I haven’t seen any polling data, but my guess is that few North Carolinians believe that NOTHING should be done, now or ever, to extend legal recognition to gay and lesbian couples. Why would the framers of this proposed amendment want to take things to this extreme?"
