North Carolina Bill Would Reinstate Ban On Same-Sex Marriage

North Carolina Bill Would Reinstate Ban On Same-Sex Marriage

House Bill 780, or the "Uphold Historical Marriage Act", says the Supreme Court "overstepped its constitutional bounds" in its 2015 ruling in the Obergefell v. Hodges case.

N.C. Gov. Roy Cooper tweeted his opposition to the bill Tuesday. It also falsely claims the Supreme Court has no jurisdiction over the Christian Bible.

What's more, it would make existing same-sex marriages between its residents, whether they were performed inside or outside of the state, no longer valid.

House Bill 728 was filed this week by five Republican House members.

Questions posed to Western North Carolina's legislative delegation weren't immediately answered, possibly due to the bill's being filed near the end of the day yesterday.

Not The Onion, just North Carolina.

Ecuador: Moreno's win relief for Wikileaks Assange

Lawmakers proposed House Bill 728 on Tuesday, according to WNCN, and it states that if an intercollegiate athletic association boycotts North Carolina, then the University of North Carolina campuses that are a part of that conference would be prohibited from extending the grant of media rights to that conference.

The bill's primary sponsors are (photos, in order, above, ) Rep. "This bill potentially violates federal law and the U.S. Constitution and could expose North Carolina to costly litigation. Essentially, if a couple married and raised children in California, but moved to North Carolina together, the parents" marriage would not be recognized by their new home state.

The good citizens of the Tar Heel State might want to ask their elected officials, whose salaries, expenses, and generous per-diems they pay, how they have time to engage in such hate-filled and unsafe excursions.

The bill - and the national news coverage it received - prompted criticism from several Republican House legislators in the hours before Moore shot it down Wednesday.

"If this bill were to become law it would be declared unconstitutional".

North Carolina's former governor, who signed the bill and was ousted from office following an election dominated by it, agreed with the LGBT rights groups who said the bill was not really repealed.
