The N.C. Republican Party is tarnishing the state’s name

The proposed platform of the North Carolina Republican Party includes the following language: "Government should treat all citizens impartially, without regard to wealth, race, ethnicity, disability, religion, sex, political affiliation or national origin. We oppose all forms of invidious discrimination. Sexual orientation is not an appropriate category."

So, here we see their true colors. We can also see clearly that Amendment One really was about discrimination after all, despite all assertions to the contrary.

How much more can Republicans (and certain loose-cannon preachers) do to further tarnish the image of this state?

  1. “Government should treat all citizens impartially, without regard to religion”

    Amendment One violates their own stated principle by elevating a single, favored religious belief above other beliefs, religious and non-religious, and uses a coercive government to force everyone to practice that particular religion, even against their will. This is the consequence of merging of church and state and should be avoided in a free society in every case.

    Heaven forbid that the religionists should have to resort to the messy process of persuasion.

    In whose eyes is the Republican Party tarnishing the image of NC? This state has long been a rather conservative leaning state. Every time the issues of Amendment One are put to the voters across this country, the people tend to agree with the strong majority of NC voters. Perhaps you are merely disappointed that you do not the hearts and minds of most people behind you.
