North Carolina puts Super DOMA on the ballot — here are some voices of reason amidst the anti-LGBT storm

“Most of us have gay neighbors, co-workers, friends and family members. Know that if you vote for this amendment, you will cause them pain.”
— NC State Sen. Josh Stein
“I remember a recent session where we went to great lengths, and necessary ones I believe, to issue an apology to African-American citizens for injustices. What I think is about to happen here is another instance where in the not-too-distant future we will be apologizing again for unfair and harmful discriminatory practices.”
— NC State Rep. Susan Fisher
