UPDATE: Just in from Brian Brown:
As you may have heard, last week the North Carolina Senate overrode Governor Pat McCrory’s incredibly uninformed veto of critically important legislation to protect marriage and religious liberty. That was a great victory, but we are not done yet because now the House in North Carolina also needs to override McCrory’s veto. Please click here to take action today to urge legislators to vote to override the veto of this legislation. Senate Bill 2 was originally passed with overwhelming support in both houses of the state legislature. It protects clerks, magistrates and registers of deeds who have deeply-held religious objections from personally having to participate in same-sex ‘marriage’ ceremonies. Without this legislation, government officials would be put in the terrible position of having to choose between keeping their job or being true to their religious convictions. Nobody should be forced to participate in a same-sex ‘wedding’ in violation of their deeply held beliefs. Please act immediately to defend marriage and uphold religious liberty by urging the North Carolina House to override Governor McCrory’s veto of Senate Bill 2.
