Marriage was established by God, who defines marriage as being between a man and a woman. Marriage is not a constitutional right; it's not in the US Constitution. It's a privilege; a HOLY ceremony performed by clergy to santify the union of a man and a woman, according to God's Word. Even so, there were many people who voted for this amendment not because they're Christians, but because they believe in morality and they believe that marriage should not be between two men or two women.
We're a democracy. Like it or not, the majority rules; and the majority of the State of North Carolina have spoken loud and clear.
You may not like it, but it is what it is.
