RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- Behind the scenes lobbying is gearing up as the North Carolina Legislature considers next month whether to put a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage on next year's ballot. The News & Observer of Raleigh reports Monday that campaigns over the proposed constitutional ban include petitions, pulpit messages, rallies, billboards and phone banks. State lawmakers return to Raleigh next month for a session to consider a constitutional amendment banning the union of two people of the same sex. It's already illegal for same-sex couples to marry in North Carolina. The proposal would let voters decide whether to amend the state constitution to state that marriage between a man and a woman is the only domestic valid legal union recognized in the state.
