The theme of this afternoon’s rally: inform state legislators that NC has the right to vote on a constitutional amendment defining marriage. Dozens of people gathered outside the state capital to take part in the National Organization for Marriage “Summer for Marriage Tour: Raleigh.”
Rev. March Creech of the Christian Action League spoke to the crowd saying, “State polling, residents and voters support a constitutional amendment protecting marriage, why not our legislature?”
Marriage supporters continued to point out that North Carolina is the only state in the southeast that has yet to vote on a state constitutional amendment defining marriage between one man and one woman.
Meanwhile, across the street gay rights activists held a counter-demonstration chanting “Equality North Carolina” to the sound of honking horns on busy Fayetteville Street.
While NOM has a few stops left on the tour, Raleigh proved to be an exciting rally for supporters of a marriage protection amendment.
