    Wow...really North Carolina? What is wrong with the Republicans in this state? Great plan guys...go for the social issues, reinforce the idea that Republicans want to discriminate against gay people, and watch campaign ads made to reflect that and Republicans start losing elections.

    Exactly why church and state should be separated. They are trying to use their religious beliefs to tell everyone else how to live, including people of other religions or of no faith at all.

    As soon as someone quotes the bible in a government position to justify a law they should be relieved of their position.

    Nope, the Republican rubber stamp got the boot, and is busy whining he can't get a job now because of it. Seems his pals are to busy passing new silly bills, instead of lending him a hand.

    Democrats lost last time in large part due to focusing on social issues rather than the economy. If this is a sign of the GOP going back to social issues it is also a sign that they will lose big because of those issues.

    For all their noise about small government, conservatives sure do like to legislate every aspect of people's lives...

    North Carolina and Pennsylvania need to shut the hell up. Some of us other states are tired of hearing your BS. On the other hand, Missouri and Mississippi sure are happy that they're not the idiots this round. For now. What's the point of separation of church and state when religion is always used to pass a bill? Why should the non-religious and religions other than Christianity have to be subjugated to such stupidity?

    Outlawing gay marriage? Seems very "middle eastern" to me. I hear the US still does executions too. It's all very Sharia over there in Christianland.

    What a backward place in the western world. The 70's are over North Carolina.

    Maybe because according to a 2014 study by the Pew Research Center, 70.6% of the American population identified themselves as Christians. (BTW I'm a Republican from PA - did not vote for Trump).

    Well in that case, if they don't want to get gay-married, they don't have to get gay-married.

    well it is in this book that few people actually read called the bible.
    I know tour afraid google so here you.
    The objection is taken from Exodus 21. I’ll reproduce the King James Version, seeing that the way the venerable translation reads is the culprit with internet biblio-skeptics:

    7 And if a man sell his daughter to be a maidservant, she shall not go out as the menservants do.
    8 If she please not her master, who hath betrothed her to himself, then shall he let her be redeemed: to sell her unto a strange nation he shall have no power, seeing he hath dealt deceitfully with her.
    9 And if he have betrothed her unto his son, he shall deal with her after the manner of daughters.
    10 If he take him another wife; her food, her raiment, and her duty of marriage, shall he not diminish.
    11 And if he do not these three unto her, then shall she go out free without money.

    The rethugs have a supermajority in the NC legislature so they can override a veto. But this stupid bill won't last 10 seconds in court.

    So? Why should the other 30% have to live by their religious doctrines? Doesn't seem very American to me.

    They don't. Just saying this country was founded on religious freedom by a mostly Christian population and our laws have always been influenced to a large extent by those Christian morals and beliefs.

    The lines separating church from State are being blurred. Soon we'll be in par with the M.E., replace Sharia with Christian.

    The sad part is they don't see the irony.

    Correct. Also just because there may be a federal law recognizing "Gay Marriage" that law doesn't require 70% of the population to accept in morally against their own beliefs. Freedom of Religion.
