Monday News stories for Sept 12, 2011

A rally in support of Traditional Marriage and the proposed legislation that will allow North Carolinians to vote on a Marriage Protection Amendment was held at 10:30am this morning at Halifax Mall behind the Legislative Building in Raleigh.  The purpose of the Marriage Rally is to show lawmakers that North Carolinians care about protecting the institution of marriage in this state, and want the opportunity to vote on how it will be defined for future generations. Traditional or biblical marriage as already stated in the State’s Constitution is between one man and one woman.   Lawmakers will be back in session later today. For more information about the Marriage Protection Amendment:  http://www.ncfamily.org/specialsma.html
