If the subject wasn’t so serious — people voting on the civil rights of gay and lesbian couples — this would be hilarious: yhe only non-bible based argument the pro-Amendment One side has touted is the “activist judge” meme, and now one on their team debunks it! (WRAL):
On tonight’s On The Record, one of the three Campbell Law professors who authored a paper defending the Marriage Amendment conceded he doesn’t believe one of the primary arguments advanced by amendment backers.
From the beginning of their campaign, its supporters have said the amendment is needed because the current state law banning same-sex marriage could be overturned at any time by “activist judges.”
Campbell Law Professor Lynn Buzzard doesn’t believe that’s true in North Carolina.
When asked whether the current ban is in danger of being overturned by the North Carolina Supreme Court, Buzzard replied, “No, I do not think so.”
