Big old Bible shot. Talks about “redefining marriage” when the Amendment does no such thing, gratuitous use of black families. “Protecting marriage” — every cliche imaginable. Vote for Marriage NC really doesn’t make the case for this amendment for those outside of the base of people who would have voted for it anyway:
And I have a video that is a perfect juxtaposition to the above nonsense. Filmmaker Eric Preston put together a fantastic response to the bible-based bigotry arguments, ahem, LIES about Amendment One that are being tossed about. Point-by-point, using an unbelievable sermon by a local pastor, Preston deconstructs the garbage:
On April 1st, 2012, a pastor preached a sermon to his congregation designed to fearfully persuade them to vote in favor of a proposed constitutional amendment that would adversely affect minority couples in the state of North Carolina. This four minute video includes excerpts from that sermon and reveals the true nature of the matter.
