North Carolina vs. South Carolina – Who is More Gay Friendly?

 

  An official in western North Carolina has accepted marriage license
requests from 10 same-sex couples, despite a 2012 amendment to the state
constitution forbidding such marriages.

North Carolina is among 29 U.S. states with
constitutional amendments defining marriage as between a man and a
woman. Six other states, including Pennsylvania, have laws that do so.

Local officials in Pennsylvania and New Mexico,
which has no law banning or approving same-sex nuptials, have begun
issuing marriage licenses to gay couples since the June 26 high court
ruling.

MEANWHILE….

A South Carolina mayor has sparked the ire of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community after expressing her opposition to same-sex marriage in a Facebook status referencing “queers.”

As Fox Carolina is reporting, West Union Mayor Linda Oliver took to Facebook in response to a North Carolina county official’s decision to defy his state’s ban on same-sex marriage by accepting marriage applications from LGBT couples.

While the mayor’s controversial post has since been deleted, Towleroad quotes Oliver as having originally written:

What’s it gonna take to get these queers to realize they
don’t need a piece of paper. God will not bless their union because he
plainly speaks against queers in the Bible. Want to cover your queer
with insurance? Buy a policy. Want your queer to get your stuff when you
die? Make a will.
