RALEIGH, NC (AP) — A small college in Raleigh is the site of a panel discussion on possible results if North Carolina voters approve or reject changing the state constitution to ban same-sex marriage.

The event at Meredith College on Monday brings together some of the proposed amendment’s most ardent supporters and opponents in what is billed as a respectful discussion. The panelists include law professors and church pastors on both sides. It’s being moderated by a Meredith College professor of religion and ethics.

North Carolina law already rules out gay marriage, but voters will decide in the May 8 election whether that ban will be locked into the state constitution. That would mean marriage laws could not be changed quickly by legislators.

In the debate between religion and politics, is there any room for a bona fide atheist or are we going to have another “God-Law” crammed down our throats?
