    Lesbian arrested for seeking marriage license in North Carolina

    Lesbian arrested for seeking marriage license in North Carolina* - NY Daily News


    WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. A lesbian who sought a North Carolina marriage license with her partner and was rejected under a state law banning same-sex marriage was arrested with another person Thursday after they refused to leave a government office where several gay and lesbian couples were turned away.

    The civil disobedience followed a day after President Barack Obama publicly endorsed same-sex marriage, and two days after North Carolina voters overwhelmingly passed a constitutional amendment that defines marriage as solely between a man and a woman.

    The protest came amid attempts by a gay rights group, Campaign for Southern Equality, to broaden public support to allow same-sex marriage and more protests are planned in coming days at other county offices in North Carolina that issue marriage licenses
    Methinks she did on purpose to get the new amendment challenged in courts.

    She was arrested for refusing to leave a government office after being asked, not for asking for a same-sex marriage license.

    The news article's title is deliberately deceptive. As noted by Jerry, she wasn't arrested for seeking a marriage licence, she was arrested for making a scene and refusing to leave.

    A well deserved scene, and a good reason to refuse to leave.

    A stupid reason, actually, but I'm glad she made a fool of herself. I needed the laugh

    State passes law you don't like, so refuse to leave until you get your way: Woman logic.
    Civil rights logic ...

    I think she should get life in the clink.

    Yeah because that makes so much sense. Where is your mind at?

    On topic: I think that this woman did a good thing. As Your Star said, she had a good reason for making a scene as her civil rights are being infringed upon by the state.

    Rights are subjective, her "good reasoning" isn't necessarily readily apparent to others. She went to the office specifically to make a scene. She succeeded. They have no obligation to accommodate her tantrum.
