Same sex marriage, a controversial issue on both the federal and state levels now becomes a burning topic for one county here in the east.

People in Greenville spoke out Monday night in front of the Pitt County Board of Commissioners about same sex marriage.

County Commissioner, David Hammond, urged fellow board members to adopt a resolution opposing same sex marriage.

This resolution is in support of state lawmakers proposing an amendment to North Carolina's constitution that would define marriage as a union between a man and woman.

If passed, the amendment would be decided by voters and put on the November ballot.

That very reason is why Commissioner Hammond, says Pitt County should take a strong stance against same sex marriage now.

No decision was made by the County Commissioners to adopt Hammond's proposed resolution.
