The Charlotte Observer reports:
Three Charlotte-area couples applied for marriage licenses at the Mecklenburg County Register of Deeds Wednesday, knowing there was almost no chance the legal paperwork would be issued. Each same-sex couple – Scott Bishop and Ron Sperry; Rev. Robin Tanner and Rev. Ann Marie Alderman and Joey Howell and Scott Lindsley – went into the local office separately to apply. After checking each couples’ identification, the answer that clerk Robin Maddox gave was the same: “Unfortunately, North Carolina does not allow us to issue to same-sex (couples) … I do apologize, that is the law.”
Are there any brave North Carolina county clerks willing to stand up for what’s right?
