    Whatever your opinion is on this issue. Who cares what celebrities say about such things? You get paid ridiculous amounts of money to entertain. Just do what you do best. Your opinions don't matter to the majority.

    makes me sick to my stomach that in this day and age people are still so ignorant and would deny rights for others.

    It is important to remember that we didn't all vote for it. I am straight and live in NC and voted against it, and the fact that it passed, makes me sick.

    I am a republican who lives in NC, and still voted against Amendment One. I cant understand anyone's justification to vote for it

    To make the world a better place, line up every single gay male & give them free Smith & Wesson Therapy, then take every single gay female & sew one onto their bodies! Problem solved!

    If the entertainers have a problem with the vote then don't live there!!!! NC had their opinion and everyone else's opinion obviously doesn't matter. I think it's great that people who don't agree with gay marriage finally had their say. I don't agree with gay marriage at all. Does it affect my marriage? No, BUT it goes against Christian beliefs and what the Holy Bible says. America is still a Christian nation!!!! Yes, Jesus loves you but it's in the Old and New Testament that homosexuality is not only a sin but an abomination.

    Please know that there are North Carolinians who opposed this ignorant, hate-filled, bigoted amendment. We aren't all religious-rightwing nutjobs. It sickens me but I do believe and have hope that this issue will be a thing of the past within the next decade. EQUALITY FOR ALL!!!

    I live in NC and of course was against, so yesterday was a sad day for many of us. Gay marriage already is not legal here, so they were beating a dead horse with this one anyway, but the way the amendment was written, it will affect many single parents, women, straight couples who are unmarried and their children. Domestic violence protection is no longer there… it's completely crazy to me.

    Why do we care what celebrities think that live in Los Angeles, CA? Um…im confused. Honestly, I'm sick and tired of celebrities and their political opinions. Apparently we are supposed to fall down and agree with all of their opinions. Ridiculous.

    Re: lshar – You know what, you're right. America is still a Christian nation. Protestants and Catholics make up the majority of Americans. I don't know why people are always so surprised and outraged when states, especially southern ones, vote against gay marriage. I am from New Jersey and am pretty neutral on the issue of gay marriage. If it's passed, good for the gays. If it's not, I'm not going to go protest in the streets. It's not that important of an issue to me to be honest. But I respect the fact that southerners tend to be the most religious, along with the midwest, and I don't become upset when the people there vote against gay marriage. It's just the way things are. We can't scream at everyone who doesn't believe in gay marriage. We have to let them be and respect their opinions, no matter what we may think of them. Do they scream at people who say they strongly believe in gay marriage? Not nearly as loudly as those on the opposite side do. There are always two sides to every story, and two opinions for every issue. Deal with it, everyone. If you don't like this amendment, move out of NC and quit picking on those who are deeply religious.

    The problem is not many people in NC really understood the amendment. This really had nothing to do with gay marrage because gay marrage is already illegal in NC. This ammendment effected anyone who was in a common law marrage…mostly straight couples and any children they may have (but also any gay couples)….Don't get me wrong I am all for gay rights but the problem is how this was presented to the public. I even saw a comercial for the ammendment and it basically was ALL about gay marrage and how NC had to stop people from redefining what marrage has always meant (between man and woman) nowhere in that comerical did it ever talk about how it effects straight couples in common law marrages or how this redefines the laws on domestic violence…The only thing to do now is go to change.org and sign the repel ammendment one petition!

    Please remember the people that voted against this when you criticize the State. It was an unfair fight when you consider the way the information was presented to the general public. It’s a well-known fact that there are still voters out there that don’t take the time to inform themselves of what they are actually voting on. They watch one commercial and make their choice and we all know how honest those campaign commercials are.

    The voters have spoken and rejected the gay lifestyle. That is their collective right. What celebrities think of it doesn't matter. Do they pay taxes in NC? No. So what they say is so not important. They're entertainers, not thinkers (obviously). As for you twats who are using words like "bigot" and "hate," disapproving of something or not wanting something is not about hate. It's the small-minded and hateful who pull those words out because they have nothing else to offer; they have no intelligence to have a meaningful dialogue. You're all assholes who make me laugh like hell. I live in a state with a gay ban, and I approve. I also approve of the NC ban. I don't hate the gays. But I don't think the gays need or deserve marriage. If you don't like what the voters decided in NC, don't live there. But the people have spoken, so it's time to stop your chronic whining.

    I honestly think i should be able to get married!

    I live in NC and would like to point out that regardless of your position on the amendment, it is not a ban on gay marriage. I voted against it and am supportive of the lgbt community. In the state of NC it's already illegal for gay couples to get married, this amendment took away rights from ALL domestic partnerships. So regardless of your religious opinions, there is absolutely no reason that this passed. All the counties with colleges, with exceptions of schools that are already out, were strongly against it. Education counts. and Ishar, you are an abomination. Christianity teaches tolerance. Jesus showed love and forgiveness to everyone. Educate yourself. It's people like you that make me absolutely ashamed of what the Christian faith has represented itself to be.

    Re: Stephanie – Oh please. Stop being an idiot. The Amendment was perfectly clear; anyone with a half-decent command of the English language knew WTF it was about. A majority of the voters in the state are against gay marriage. They don't ask you to make retarded excuses for them; they voted their will. If the issue was that important to others, they had the opportunity to get registered and vote. They did not. OF COURSE there were propaganda ads about it; a moron would have expected them. But at the polls, the Amendment was printed out clear as day, and voters had the opportunity to read it and vote on what they read. The losers always talk about forcing a repeal. Nobody likes sour grapes. You gay lovers didn't win in NC. Move on.

    Re: emily – You're an abomination; you are told to judge not, lest ye be judged. Hypocrite.

    Re: La Garse – Actually, she's right. Gay marriage was already illegal in NC, this amendment has more to do with single people and domestic abuse issues rather than gay marriage. It was just reiterating that in NC, marriage is between a man and a woman only. And will stay that way if this bill was passed. I'm sure people voted it in because of the clause, but the issue of gay marriage wasn't up for debate.

    Re: La Garse – I know someone who worked at the polls and TONS of the people who voted were asking them to explain the addendum better…of course they were not allowed to do that…Just goes to show how poorly worded the ammendment was and the counties with the most educated people voted against it. The point is that people did not really understand what they were voting for and therefore the ammendment should have never been passed.



  24. 24

    For the record we DID NOT ALL support this. Don't down a whole state when 40% went out there and voted for what they felt was right.

    Re: La Garse – considering I am not a christian, which I feel was made fairly clear, no, I am not a hypocrite, you are just an idiot

    Re: La Garse
    You're such a transparent bitch, LaGarbage. Your clear command of the English language may have people fooled into thinking you're more intelligent than you really are, but it's obvious you're an idiot. FYI, North Carolina is one of the most popular states in which to film major motion pictures, so yes, a lot of celebrities do come to North Carolina to work, and thus pay taxes there. That makes their opinions just as valid, if not more valid, than the shit you spew on a daily basis here on Perez Hilton. Why are you here, anyway, if you hate it so much? No one will take you seriously on a much more credible or intelligent forum? I can see you getting owned already on such sites. Might as well just stay here and peddle your bullshit, dahling! Except, no one is buying it here, either. :)

    Re: emily – Emily, yes Jesus did teach love. He also said ask for forgiveness for your sin and sin no more. don't be a "cafeteria christian". if you say you're a christian then know the bible. you can't pick and choose what you makes you feel good. society has changed but Jesus hasn't. why don't read revelations (about the end of time being like the days of noah), genesis (noah and the ark), and then you will see that you are wrong! during the times of noah, men were marrying men and women were marrying women. the people mocked christians then christians turned their back on God. They mocked noah b/c he was the only one that still listened to God. Today's society, there isn't another religion that is hated as much as christianity. What happened in Sodom and Gomorrah? Lot and his family went into the town to stop the hedonistic ways of the town. God destroyed the city and told Lot and his family to not turn around. His wife did and God turned into a pillar of salt. A Christian KNOWS this information. Cafeteria Christians like the feel good messages of the Bible but not when it steps on their toes. After the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we live under grace, The New Testament, it is worded again and again and again about homosexuality NOT being just a sin but an abomination. Open your Bible and get familiar with it!

    Do you know why it passed? BECAUSE THE PEOPLE VOTED FOR IT. I'd rather have them vote for it and it be passed then have the government overrule the decision of the voters. But maybe that's just one American trying to preserve a say in anything under Obama's administration…
