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

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.
