Petition Against Amendment One to the North Carolina State Constitution

Repeal this legislation

    1. Daniel Salgado
    2. Petition by

      Daniel Salgado

      Cary, NC

It violates the U.S. Constitution, Amendment 14, Section 1, and also denies NC citizens of their inalienable rights, such as the pursuit of happiness. The Constitution is the "supreme law of the land" and supersedes any state legislation.

The ballot text can be found anywhere, but here is the link to the exact document:
http://ncleg.net/Sessions/2011/Bills/Senate/PDF/S514v3.pdf

This bill fails to recognize unmarried couples as partnerships, denying them of rights such as child services, social services, protection from domestic violence, and other things. This is unconstitutional and needs to be repealed.

Please sign and share if you are against this.

Thank you.

      The government does not have the right to legislate a religious institution, such as marriage. It does not have the right to discriminate against people. I think it's repulsive to use majority rule to enforce restrictions on minorities.

      Im from NC and whats happening there is an absolute joke. I feel that if they claim marriage to be so "sacred"or whatever term their using this week, then divorce shouldnt be an option that a man and a woman can choose. If i cant get married and have rights as a human being because im gay. Then those that aren't shouldn't be able to get out of the things they claim we'll ruin if allowed to do. Hell we "gays" probably know more about real marriage and sacrafice than any breeder.
