N.C. gov.: ‘We look like Mississippi’

May 12, 2012


North Carolina Gov. Bev Perdue said Friday that a new constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage makes her state “look like Mississippi.”

The voter-approved amendment, which defines marriage between a man and woman as the only legal union, is bad for North Carolina’s image, Perdue told WITN.

“It’s wrong for North Carolina, clearly and simply,” she said. “People around the country are watching us and they’re really confused to have been such a progressive, forward-thinking, economically driven state that invested in education and that stood up for the civil rights of people including the civil rights marches back in the ‘50s and ’60s and ’70s. Folks are saying, what in the world is going in North Carolina? We look like Mississippi.”
On Tuesday, 61 percent of voters approved the ban. North Carolina law had already banned same-sex marriage, but the passage of the amendment means civil unions and possibly other types of domestic partnerships will no longer be legally recognized.

    If the North Carolina governor is so put out with the citizens exercising their right to amend their constitution, then it would be entirely appropriate for the governor to resign and move to another state, like New York or New Jersey.

    Having this woman, as well as the previous criminal liberal Governor(s), as Governor is what is making this state look so pathetic. Considering that there are already 30+ states who already have this constitutional amendment. North Carolina has been run for so many years by the left that it will take decades to reverse the destruction they have caused. Our education is based on money and diversity, instead of EDUCATION. We have some of the highest taxes in the nation, we have some of the highest welfare rolls in the nation. We have the most politicians being investigated, prosecuted, and incarcerated (ALL DEMOCRATS!) in the nation. Yet this BIMBO (Perdue) continues to embarrass us with her rhetoric.
