Republicans Introduce Law to Ban Gay Marriage

Lawmakers in North Carolina have proposed a new bill banning gay marriage in the state.

The motive behind House Bill 780, known as the “Uphold Historical Marriage Act,” claims that the Supreme Court went too far when in 2015 it struck down Amendment One, which made it legal for gays to marry.

More than 60 percent of North Carolina voters approved Amendment One in 2012. The Amendment prohibited North Carolina from performing or even recognizing same-sex marriages or civil unions. 

HB 780 not only claims that the Supreme Court overstepped its bounds, but that they overstepped “the decree of Almighty God.”

If the bill passes, it would mean that North Carolina would no longer allow the federal government to legally regulate marriage in the state, and that the Supreme Court’s decision from 2015 would be void.

For married gays, it would mean that whether they lived in North Carolina or were married in another state and traveled there, the state would not recognize their licenses.

The Supreme Court’s decision in the Obergefell v. Hodges case which led to legalized same-sex marriage nationwide, is addressed in the bill.

The bill states the ruling “exceeds the authority of the Court relative to the decree of Almighty God that ‘a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh’ (Genesis 2:24, ESV) and abrogates the clear meaning and understanding of marriage in all societies throughout prior history.”

House Bill 780, in terms of its declaration of state’s rights, follows in the path of history. For example, the Tenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution gives states the power to refuse to comply with federal laws.
