"Vote Against Project" Stops At ECU

A group opposed to the amendment on the NC May 8th ballot defining marriage as between one man and one woman, brought their message to ECU Thursday.

The group is called "The Vote Against Project." It's an independent grassroots effort started up by photographer Curtis Brown.

Brown says they take photos of fellow supporters wearing a "Vote Against" t-shirt, then those people can use the photos to get the word out on Facebook and Twitter.

Brown says the amendment "Doesn't just affect the lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender community, it also effects domestic partners and civil unions. So anyone that just doesn't want to get married or people that lose benefits with the pension by getting married will now be affected if this amendment passes through."

So far the group has photographed around 2,000 people.

On the flip side there are some organizations in our state that are for the amendment, including the North Carolina Values Coalition, religious organizations and several state lawmakers.

    @Uncle Sam, did you know there are only about 7 verses in the bible that address homosexuality? In my opinion, homosexuality is definitely not a problem you should be focusing on. You're a sinner. Everyone is. You should be focusing on those commandments of yours instead of 7 verses in the bible that are not rules like the commandments. To me, there are two types of Christians. There are ones that quote verses in the bible that tell people how much Jesus loves them (because he loves everyone no matter what) and there are ones that pick verses at the bible and use them in a hurtful way. The bible was not meant to be used to bully people. Learn to be a real Christian. God is love.

    The perfect compromise: we don't need to get the church out of marriage, we need to get the government out. Marriage is a religious ceremony and the government should have no say in it. With that being said, it is extremely unfair for two people committed to each other to not have the same protections as another couple just because of their gender. So, the perfect compromise would be to have the government recognize no marriages at all and have the government only recognize a committed relationship as binding when the parties choose to do so. Make it just as hard to "break up" as it is now by applying the same divorce laws to those relationships and then have the government recognize any relationship at all as long as the parties are consenting. In other words, male-male, female-female, male-female, or even male-male-female or whatever. Have the same protections apply to these partnerships are as currently enjoyed by married couples and everyone should be happy.

    They want to ban the Armed Services from going on our collage campus but they have no problem with this group going on campus spreading their filth.Recruiting is recruiting it dose not matter if its military or some left wing Godless liberal.The bible clearly states that a man should not lay with a man and a woman should not lay with a woman,lay being in the biblical sense.Keep these hippies in the closet where they belong,and of our state funded campus.God Bless America!

    Just to clarify something. There are no common law marriages, domestic partnerships, or civil unions recognized legally in NC.

    I am afraid this is going to confuse a lot of people when it's time to vote. I think when the ballott shows the words "for" and "against." I think many people are going to mark "against" thinking this voting against the ammendment when it will be voting "for" it instead. It needs to be stated a little more clearer for those that do not understand the difference between the "for" and the "against".

    Of course, go after the mushbrain college kids...indoctrination of our youth. The only mistake they are making, most do not vote.

    This is the same group that is sending spam emails. Next the phone will start ringing. I will vote for what is acceptable in God's eyes, not mans.

    Liberal judges and liberal politicians should not be able to change the legal definition of marriage. Legal marriage is now and should always be between one man and one woman.

    Seems like America keeps slipping further into the quagmire of coping with acceptance of all things and trying to make everyone happy rather than keeping it's moral fabric intact. If you want your civil rights as gays, that's fine, let's not put your label of "gay marriage" on it cause that phrase should not exist. It's not natural and produces nothing. It all boils down to legal issues but keep the sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman.
