Best & worst of NC

Sometimes I get really embarrassed about my home state, more specifically my hometown. I rant, I roll my eyes, and I’m often thankful to be living in a city where my most abnormal daily activities are viewed as normal.

My latest disappointment in North Carolina was the vote to pass Amendment 1 on May 8. It was a sad outcome, but the aftermath was interesting. President Obama publicly supported same-sex marriage, petitions to repeal Amendment 1 were started (and signed!), memes were shared, and sermons spilled out of the pulpits…most infamously that of Pastor Worley’s.

Pastor Worley isn’t the first controversial preacher to stand up in a box, but his church just so happens to be a stone’s throw from where I grew up. Without a doubt, I was extremely disappointed and was embarrassed by this video. Not only is Stacey ignorant, but we also went to the same high school.

As hard as that video is to watch, I hope you made it to Anderson Cooper’s retort about the Holocaust. *snerk*

Even though North Carolina hasn’t done a lot to redeem itself in the past, this past weekend they held a Love, not Hate protest at the county courts. A few of my friends still in the area went and showed their support and I couldn’t help but think…well done, North Carolina. Well done.
