#1: Amendment 1 Passed in North Carolina
I am so disgusted with this. I have been wanting to move away for a while now, but I admittedly became complacent and stayed here longer than I intended. The passing of this amendment just gave me more incentive to put a plan together, get my butt in gear, and get away from here as soon as I can. There's nothing like using religion, fear, and bigotry as the foundation for a constitutional amendment. I feel like we (America in general, not just NC) have been taking some giant steps backwards when it comes to certain people's civil liberties lately. Sometimes it's hard to believe this nonsense is actually happening in the year 2012.
