Don't hold back. Tell us what you really feel. ^.^

I wouldn't doubt that at all, but we have a metric shit-ton of them right here in town to begin with.  There are churches on every freaking corner here, some of them in run down warehouse buildings that are literally nothing but a shell of aluminum on a concrete slab. What a better life our needy might have if they'd only tax these charlatans.

And a shitload of those were people bused in from psycho, Pentecostal churches in western NC.

Yeah it was low turn out here too, just under 14k from what I've read.

actually margin was 62%, still high, i remember after obama won people flooded out of dorms and apartments and just started partying in the street after months of a strong presence on campus, i doubt they got that kind of turn out for the primary

Liberals turn out for presidential elections, not primaries.

i was a little surprised when i saw the vote was 68% For Amend 1 in pitt county, where ECU is, i guess the college vote didn't turn out there, maybe because of finals? Obama won Pitt a couple years ago by a decent margin. Same thing in Guilford county.

Yesterday was 'free paper' day here in good ol' Lee county, according to that rag, over 70% of the voters here voted for the amendment. Like Jessica I was born and raised here and this just disgusts and depresses me. I have so many family members and friends who will be injured by this hateful law and they don't deserve to be lumped in with the trogs in this state who voted for this law, many against their own best self-interests because they were duped.

I'm glad I have you guys to share with, because I probably, unwittingly, made a lot of local enemies by pushing them to vote against the amendment and offering to drive those who couldn't get there on their own to the polls. Sadly I got no responses, or takers and only know of 4 other people in this area besides my husband and I who voted against it, two of those were my parents.

Well, I'm not from here. Not my fault. :-p

The Triangle and the Charlotte area voted HEAVILY against it. It's all of the religious nutjobs in the more rural areas who drag us down.

r/atheism is giving NC a beating. It hurts to read so much negativity about the state I was born and raised in.  It saddens me that we all are now portrayed a bigot filled state.  I voted and encouraged over 15 people to go vote "against" who were not planning on it.  I would like to make a meme to post over there but I lack the cleverness to get it to the front page. le sigh
