NC's Amendment 1 Backers Fueled By Religious Dogma

The list of the top funders to the supporters of North Carolina's Amendment 1 has been revealed (By Good As You's Jeremy Hooper) and it is dominated by groups seething with unbridled homophobia and fuled by extreme religious dogma. Some of religious extremist and heterosexual supremacist groups that have poured tens of thousands of dollars in enacting their faith-based view of marriage on all citizens of North carolina regardless of religious belief are: Christian Action League ($300,000), National Organization for Marriage ($300,000), 2 Roman Catholic Dioceses ($50,000 each) et cetera, et cetera.

As Think Progress notes, this is not surprising because the entire argument of the proponents of the anti-gay Amendment 1 is based on the Bible (and one specific vision of faith and religion). Just look at their television ads, both of which mention "God" and depict the Bible.

It's a good thing we don't live in a theocracy, huh? What part of civil marriage do these people not understand?
