Two NC Magistrates Quit Over Homosexual ‘Marriage’

Rather than performing homosexual “marriages” and promoting what God calls an abomination, two North Carolina county magistrates have quit their jobs.

In his resignation letter, one magistrate wrote that performing such unions “would desecrate a holy Institution established by God Himself.”

From Christian News:

The issue arises after U.S. District Court Judge Max O. Cogburn Jr., nominated to the bench by Barack Obama, overturned the state’s ban on same-sex “marriage” last Friday, opining that a North Carolina constitutional amendment enshrining marriage as being solely between a man and a woman violated the U.S. Constitution.

“The issue before this court is neither a political issue nor a moral issue. It is a legal issue,” he claimed. “[I]t is clear as a matter of what is now settled law in the Fourth Circuit that North Carolina laws prohibiting same sex marriage, refusing to recognize same sex marriages originating elsewhere, and/or threating to penalize those who would solemnize such marriages, are unconstitutional.”

Although 61 percent of North Carolina voters chose to amend their state constitution to retain the definition of marriage in 2012, a collection of judges cast aside the will of the people of North Carolina and declared the law unconstitutional.
