Poll: Most North Carolinians support recognition of same-sex couples

As some GOP legislators are considering renewing their effort to pass a Constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, a new poll suggests a majority of North Carolinians now support at least some legal recognition of same-sex couples.

More than one-quarter believe gay people should have full marriage rights, according to a new Elon University survey released Monday.

The poll found an erosion of support since March 2009 among those opposed to all legal recognition of same-sex partnerships, down from 44 percent to 35 percent.

About 29 percent supported civil unions or partnerships for same-sex couples but not full marriage rights. About 28 percent of people support marriage rights.

The poll was conducted last week and surveyed 467 North Carolina residents. It had a margin of error of plus or minus 4.6 percentage points.

Same sex marriage

I am a Messianic rabbi in Raeford, N.C.. I believe in the Word of God, the Bible, and what our Savior, Yeshua/Jesus said about homosexuality in 1 Corinthians 6:9 and Galatians 5:21. It is strictly forbidden. There are several things that we do in life, that Jesus told us would buy us a ticket to hell; homosexuality is one of them. Here is a very simple question, "Where would YOU be today if BOTH your parents were homosexual? Get the point? It is so obvious. This country will continue to fail the further we stray from the Word of God. It is exponential.  As you can see, from the article above, there are lots of people who think same-sex marriage is OK. In my home state, Massachusetts, it was legalized. Now, they teach homosexuality in public school and teach that it is OK. The kids read books and comic books which say that this lifestyle is good and permissable. We must act now against this disease before it is too late for us and our kids in our state of N.C. We are going out this week with posters against same-sex marriage. Please support our Lord and the Word of God! Be blessed and be a blessing!
