Washington Blade: N.C. Governor to Veto Anti-Gay Marriage ‘Opt Out’ Bill

May 29, 2015

Washington Blade LogoChris Johnson of the Washington Blade reports on critical legislation coming out of North Carolina. Republican Governor Pat McCrory has promised to veto a bill that would allow magistrates to opt-out of performing same-sex marriages on the basis of religious beliefs. Though Governor McCrory declared his opposition to same-sex marriage, he also stated: “we are a nation and a state of laws.
