California Church Buys Billboard For Amendment One Apology In NC

AmendmentOneBillboard

North Carolina voters earlier this month passed Amendment One, a piece of legislation banning civil unions and same-sex marriage. Horrified by the move and hoping to express their solidarity with equality-minded North Carolinians, an inclusive California church spent $3,000 to offer an apology for anti-gay actions taken in the name of Christianity.

"Missiongathering Christian Church is sorry for the narrow-minded, judgmental, deceptive, manipulative actions of those who DENIED rights and equality TO so many in the Name of God," says the billboard, which is placed strategically on a highway named after anti-gay crusader Billy Graham.

There's still time to donate against it.


Evangelist Billy Graham Speaks Out in Support of NC 'Amendment 1', Takes Out Ad in 14 Papers

Evangelist Billy Graham is speaking out in support of North Carolina's Amendment One, WXII reports:

GrahamThe 93-year-old Graham has a full-page advertisement scheduled to run in 14 state newspapers. From his home in Montreat, Graham said, "Watching the moral decline of our country causes me great concern. I believe the home and marriage is the foundation of our society and must be protected."

Voters will take to the polls on "Amendment One" on May 8, though early voting has already started.

"At 93, I never thought we would have to debate the definition of marriage," Graham says in the advertisement. "The Bible is clear -- God's definition of marriage is between a man and a woman. I want to urge my fellow North Carolinians to vote for the marriage amendment on Tuesday, May 8. God bless you as you vote."

Amendment One would constitutionally prohibit legal recognition of any union other than marriage between a man and a woman, including same-sex civil unions and domestic partnerships.
