NC Billboard Promotes Homosexual Marriage
Special Report - October 8, 2009
A homosexual advocacy group has erected a provocative billboard in Greensboro that promotes the legalization of same-sex “marriage” without ever mentioning the term. The billboard features the pictures of four same-sex couples (two male couples and two female couples), and the number of years they have been together, followed by the question, “Haven’t we waited long enough”? The billboard is located above Battleground Avenue near Cove Boulevard in Greensboro.
The billboardwhich is part of a five-year campaignis sponsored by the Triad Equality Alliance, a nonprofit homosexual advocacy group in Greensboro that was founded in 2004 as part of the Equality NC Project. The goal of the campaign, according to Triad Equality Alliance, is “to open minds; change minds and hopefully one day eliminate prejudice wherever it survives.” It is one of several billboards sponsored by the Triad Equality Alliance over the years. The group’s web site, which is also included on the billboard, features the stories of the four homosexual couples featured in the campaign.
“This billboard is a reminder that despite the myth promoted by our legislative leadership that same-sex ‘marriage’ is not an issue of concern for North Carolina, it continues to be very much an issue for homosexual advocacy groups in our state who are using every means possible to advance it,” said Bill Brooks, president of the North Carolina Family Policy Council. “The redefinition of the age-old institution of marriage should not be based on how many years particular couples have been together. Marriage is about so much more than an individual relationship between two people, or the desires of the adults involved. Marriage is about bringing together a man and woman into a publicly recognized and protected union that creates the best environment for raising children. And it deserves to be protected in North Carolina through a constitutional amendment.”
