Is everyone in North Carolina Methodist?

Sure reads like it:

With all counties reporting, the amendment was approved, 61% to 39%.

That's the same margin as the UMC had when it voted that gays are Bad Christians.

Voter turnout was about 37%, which means (if my math is correct), the "majority" of North Carolinians who support fucking over their fellows is actually about 23%.

This is why a) you need to VOTE in local elections and b) direct democracy is a shitty, shitty idea.

It's worth pointing out that gay marriage has gone down in flames in every state in which its been put to a vote. North Carolina is hardly by itself in failing to approve it. Even Californians rejected it.
