North Carolina Legislature Passes A Bill That Allows Denial Of Same-Sex Marriages Based On Religious Beliefs

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal MattersPolitikLGBT

North Carolina has passed a very disturbing bill that can affect same-sex marriage in the state.

Talk about taking taking two steps forward and 500 steps back.

North Carolina legislature has just passed a bill that allows officials to deny same-sex couples a marriage ceremony or even a marriage license if it interferes with their religious beliefs.

The bill now lands on Governor Pat McCrory's desk, where he will have 10 days to decide whether to veto it or pass it. If he does not come to a decision by then the bill will become law.

This would essentially allow court officials to opt out of performing a marriage ceremony for religious reasons.

It seems that some conservatives are convinced that this is some sort of compromise and that they're REALLY protecting the officials who don't want to 'forced' to challenge their own beliefs.

It's unclear if the Governor is currently leaning in one direction or the other, but let's just say we hope he comes to his senses and shoots this thing down AGAIN!

Isn't it 2014??

Apparently the key committee in Alabama's House of Representatives pushed the bill through last week, which says

russia anti gay legislature could affect 2014 winter olympics

The 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi have already been the the center of some controversy, and it doesn't sound like that's going to change anytime soon.

The main issue has been a Russian piece of legislature that allows the government to detain, and even expel any foreigner who is gay or is spreading pro-gay "propaganda," and many have wondered if these laws applied to athletes and tourists.
