WFMY News, the CBS affiliate in Greensboro, North Carolina, does a pretty good job explaining the legal complexities of the antigay initiative Amendment One on the May 8 ballot. Meanwhile, straight philanthropist Todd Stiefel’s online challenge is up until the end of the week. He’s matching dollar-for-dollar up to $100,000 through the campaign’s website and ActBlue to fund new TV ads produced by Chad Griffin and his business partner Mark Armour .
Here’s how the WFMY News report opens:
What if the government told your boss he or she could not provide benefits to your spouse or even your children? You might have a problem with that. While it might sound unbelievable that the government would take away those benefits, some fear that could happen here in North Carolina.
We’re talking about Amendment One. It’s the amendment some call the “gay marriage amendment,” but this amendment is about a whole lot more than marriage. It’s also about benefits and economics.
