Obviously this outcome is full of suck, but there is one particular thing I want to highlight (emphasis mine):
The vote came after weeks of heated debate in church pews and over the airwaves. More than $3 million was spent on the rival campaigns. Ministers formed coalitions pushing for and against the measure, and cities passed resolutions condemning it. Former President Bill Clinton and the Rev. Billy Graham weighed in on opposite sides, and law professors skirmished over the consequences.So, I'll be over here waiting for the tax-exempt status of all the NC churches who participated in the campaign to be revoked.
I imagine I'll be waiting a while. Separation of church and state, my ass.
