North Carolina GOP Lawmakers File Bill Declaring SCOTUS Ruling On Marriage Equality "Null And Void"

Click image to enlarge

The Republican-led General Assembly of North Carolina just filed House Bill 780 declaring that the U.S. Supreme Court ruling which made marriage equality the law of the land is "null and void in the state of North Carolina."

From the bill:

The General Assembly of the State of North Carolina declares that the Obergefell v. Hodges decision of the United States Supreme Court of 2015 is null and void in the State of North Carolina, and that the State of North Carolina shall henceforth uphold and enforce Section 6 of Article XIV of the North Carolina Constitution, the opinion and objection of the United States Supreme Court notwithstanding.

Good luck with that one, North Carolina.

I wonder how "welcoming" and "inclusive" the NCAA will view North Carolina now...?
