Family Research Council launches anti-gay marriage ads in North Carolina

The Family Research Council launched radio ads in North Carolina on Thursday in support of a constitutional amendment that would ban marriage rights for same-sex couples, civil unions and domestic partnerships. The group is urging lawmakers to pass the amendment in a special session next week.

The ads say, respectively:

“Marriage is at risk in our state. Our laws defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman could be overturned. Marriage between one man and one woman benefits families in society so we must preserve the marriage laws in our state Constitution.

“On September 12, the North Carolina legislature will vote on putting a marriage amendment to a vote of the people. Powerful voices in our state capitol are threatening your right to vote on marriage. Take a stand for marriage. Call [your representative] and ask [them] to vote yes to the marriage amendment. It’s not about party, it’s about marriage.

“And on September 12, join us for a rally supporting marriage at 11 a.m. in front of the legislative building in Raleigh. Bring a sign and take a stand for marriage.”

The Family Research Council, which is listed as an anti-gay hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, is specifically targeting Sen. Eric Mansfield (D), and Reps. Rep. Chuck McGrady (R), Michael Wray (D), Annie Mobley (D), Garland Pierce (D), Elmer Floyd (D), Larry Bell (D), Charles Graham (D), Earline Parmon (D), Jim Crawford (D) and Glen Bradley (R).

“Marriage is the fundamental building block of our society. Children grow up with the greatest emotional stability in households with a loving and committed mother and father. Married couples rely less on government programs, and contribute to society rather than depending on the welfare state,” FRC head Tony Perkins said in a statement. “North Carolina invests in itself when it allows its citizens to vote on protecting and defending marriage. We urge the legislature to take this important step for their state, and join the majority of states nationwide in approving a ballot vote on marriage.”
