North Carolina has become the last southern state to add a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage. Included in the measure is an additional ban on same-sex civil unions and domestic partnerships. Regardless of where you stand on the issue, a troubling trend has continued: the accusation of hate.
Think of it this way. Most of us agree that drugs, such as heroin, should remain illegal. Does this mean opponents to heroin-legalization hate drug addicts? Or, is it rather the case that they have a legitimate point about the health-deteriorating effects of the drug? I'm much more inclined to think the latter.
Note: I'm not comparing homosexuals to drug addicts. My point is simply that the accusation of hate is based upon some flawed logic.
