Amendment Banning Same-Sex Marriage Passes
North Carolina is now the thirty-first state to add an amendment banning same-sex marriage to its constitution.
Jessica Jones: Backers of North Carolina's amendment to ban same-sex marriage and civil unions celebrated last night at the North Raleigh Hilton. Kim Creech made a seven-layer white wedding cake that she helped distribute to other supporters.
Kim Creech: was praying that it would happen. And I was glad that it wasn't any more drawn out than it was.
Creech says she believes marriage should only be between a man and a woman. Opponents of the amendment believe not enough voters understood how broad the measure is. Polling shows most North Carolinians oppose gay marriage, but they're in favor of civil unions and domestic partnerships.
