North Carolina bill seeks to ban gay marriage
House Bill 780 is being called the "Uphold Historical Marriage Act" and, if passed, would cause the state to defy the U.S. Constitution and Supreme Court in favor of restoring the laws on marriage to their former, exclusionary, form.
Representatives Larry Pittman (R-Cabarrus) and Carl Ford (R-Rowan) have joined Rep. Michael Speciale (R-New Bern) in filing H.B. The target this time is same-sex marriage. "In 2015, the court ruled to "[require] a State to license a marriage between two people of the same sex and to recognize a marriage between two people of the same sex when their marriage was lawfully licensed and performed out-of-State." H.B.
The bill would order state government to return to the constitutional amendment known as Amendment One, which was approved in a 2012 voter referendum. Upholding the United States and NC Constitutions means demanding that laws and court rulings do not contradict the very Constitutions we are obligated to uphold. Officials in Charlotte, the state's biggest city, estimated almost $100 million was lost when the National Basketball Association moved its 2017 All-Star Game to New Orleans.
"This bill is wrong", Cooper wrote.
The sponsors of the bill feel the Supreme Court overstepped its constitutional authority in 2015 when it ruled bans on same-sex marriage unconstitutional.
