Some Facebook Quotes from North Carolina Christians

Seems that a lot of people are really happy about taking away other people’s happiness. I’ve never quite understood why people would fight so passionately against something that wouldn’t affect them in the least. But then again, I don’t look to an archaic and contradictory book as a moral guide.

  1. Dale,

    As a decent N.C. resident, I used to take comfort in knowing South Carolina would out stupid us.

  2. Adam,

    As a gay man in the civilized world (i.e. not NC), I find this slightly discouraging

      Slightly?

      Sorry Adam, I really think my question comes in a very inapropriate time, but do you have a husband or a partner or a boyfriend called Steve? Because that would be awesome.

  3. McGee,

    Now, now, remember: the wisest among us ALWAYS follow to the letter a millenia-old book written by daffy men that has been translated and re-translated thousands of times. It only makes sense.

  4. Nick E. P.,

    This is a reminder to me as to why I left NC after living there for 4 years. I recall being told weekly I was going to hell for not being born again. Any “intellectual” discussion/debate with a local would quickly dwindle to “the Bible says…”

    What’s even sadder is NC is one of the more “progressive” southern states.

      Well, Obama did carry N.C.

      still not sure how that happened.

  5. ZZ,

    doesn’t the bible give the OK to incest?

      Also polygamy, rape-as-marriage-proposal, and the keeping of female slaves for sexual purposes. You know, good old moral practices.

    “I don’t have to read the bible, I’m already a christian!”

  7. Barbwire,

    Contrary to this guy’s assertion, the Bible condoned incest (Lot and his daughters); polygamy–all the patriarchs had lots of wives, and Solomon had something like 300 wives and 700 concubines. Also the Law says that a man must marry his brother’s widow. I could go on, but waht’s the point? These people don’t actually READ, do they?

  8. Ninabi,

    The commenters seem almost giddy, don’t they? I took note that many of the godly folk of NC don’t place a lot of faith in good spelling or grammar.

  10. parclair,

    Yea! One more state to help us narrow down our bucket list. There are so MANY things to see and do on our lists, avoiding the anti- states is an easy and effortless way to make sure we get to spend more money in the states that appreciate human rights!

  11. Mark,

    And where exactly does the bible say that marriage is between one man and one woman?

  12. Justin,

    The first lady (#10) spoke volumes “It’s not about taking someone’s rights away, it’s about being obedient to his word”

    But for fucks sake shouldn’t the issue be about someone’s rights getting taken away??!?! Shouldn’t that rile a person? That’s the travesty, that she throws out rights and doesn’t give them a second thought by her own admission. Scary how people can will themselves into that kind of blindness.

  13. Jean,

    What bothers me is that they want to make us all live by their religious beliefs. That’s pretty arrogant.

  14. Kinda important to note that voter turnout was something like 35% so… I think it’s quite possible if not probable that this is a failing of Democracy and our system of it in particular, though there is certainly an element of societal and cultural failure as well.

    • Beezy,

      The latest news on NPR said that the voter turnout was only14%. In my opinion, this vote doesn’t reflect the majority’s views about gay marriage.

      • Kodie,

        I’d say the result came out as they expected and they weren’t worried enough to vote. If the majority really felt the other way, they would have been worried and would have voted to effect another outcome. I don’t think that came out right, but you get the drift?

  15. Mara,

    Like Dale, I’m an NC resident. I live in one of the few counties who voted majority ‘no’– I have seen no happy Facebook posts. Everyone in my newsfeed was disappointed and ashamed.
    The problem here is that nearly everyone in my newsfeed is around my age– which is three years too young to vote. Our generation kinda knows what we’re doing, but we’re too young to actually DO anything yet.
    But ugh, yeah, I may or may not have spent Tuesday evening crying.

    They need to come up with a new clever line, because they’re really wearing out the “Adam & Steve” bit.

      Not as much as Adam and Steve are. Have you met those guys? Yeesh.

      Well, we’re not talking about rocket-scientists here. Coming up with original thoughts not a high priority for these people.

    Worked Charlotte on Monday and every locally available commercial slot on TV was purchased by the Franklin Graham cult.
