    Really impressed by their campaign. Not only are they fighting the constitutional amendment but they’re going on the offensive (so necessary) and demanding full equality with effective, on-message PR. A model for how it should be done.

    @chrisdc- this is Asheville, one of the most liberal cities in the state (surrounded by a deep red sea of hillbilly hate–the two surrounding districts are represented by Patrick McKinney and Virginia Foxx). I imagine if they had tried this in a neighboring county they would have needed a sherrif’s escort. Still, I applaud their effort and hope that this movement spreads to other less friendly parts of the state.

    I’ll be attending the rally this afternoon and I’m really interested to see how much support is behind the project at this point. Asheville is definitely a liberal bubble in western NC, which unfortunately means that we get some swipes taken at us by many conservative politicians from time to time. Just last month Republican State Sen. Jim Forrester called Asheville a “cesspool of sin’, but if the behavior demonstrated in this video is sinful, I’m all for it.

    Straight person for gay marriage here. Much luck to you all in your struggle. It breaks my heart that although people desecrate the institution of marriage, people so deserving are denied this right. I think the demeanor of the lady at the desk clearly shows that she would love nothing more than to be able to see you again and issue your marriage license. What a pleasant, poised, professional young woman. Good luck to all of you; you are teaching your children well.
