Marriage wins again May 9, 2012

Marriage is now 31 for 31 in state constitutional amendments clarifying what would have seemed ridiculously obvious 15 years or so ago – yes, marriage really is between a man and a woman, and nothing else!  North Carolina affirmed this little bit of the natural law, traditional morality, and the sanction of God last night:

By a 61%-39% margin, voters in North Carolina approved a constitutional amendment declaring that “marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in this state.”

The amendment prevents the state legislature from one day legalizing same-sex marriage or civil unions.

The only ways – the ONLY ways  – legal recognition of gays simulating marriage has managed to come into law is by legislative action or judicial fiat (and by far more of the latter than the former).  Even in liberal California, voters determined to re-affirm marriage as such, and not radically redefine it.  The only way the destruction of marriage becomes codified in all 50 states is if the Supreme Court somehow decides all these amendments of state constitutions violate the federal constitution.  Given the current makeup of the court, I consider that pretty unlikely.
