On Monday, the North Carolina Senate overrode Republican Gov.
Pat Mc Crory’s veto of a startling bill that would allow magistrates to refuse to marry any couple—so long as they have a “sincerely held religious objection.”* The bill will now go to the state house, where conservative legislators have probably rounded up the votes to push beyond Mc Crory’s veto.
In the most recent election, the urban areas voted overwhelmingly for Clinton, the rural areas overwhelmingly for Trump.
Trump won the state, but the sitting GOP Governor was ousted in favor of his Democratic opponent.

Should these legislators succeed, they will have passed one of the most far-reaching and dangerous pieces of discriminatory legislation in recent memory.
At first glance, the North Carolina bill might seem pretty similar to the anti-gay “religious liberty” measure recently passed in Indiana.
But until now, civil servants were expected to place the duties and responsibilities of their (taxpayer-funded) job ahead of their own intolerance. The legislature doesn’t seem to care that its bill could inflict serious dignitary harms on thousands of couples across the state—or that magistrates who fiercely oppose certain marriages probably shouldn’t have a government job that requires them to perform civil marriages.* If these prejudiced magistrates were truly principled, they would resign from the jobs that they can no longer perform in accordance with the law. * Correction, June 4, 2015: This post originally stated that in North Carolina magistrates grant marriage licenses. Magistrates perform civil marriage ceremonies; registers of deeds issue marriage licenses.Instead, they petitioned the legislature to grant them special rights that elevate them above the law. Both magistrates and registers of deeds may claim the exemption under the law.

The Virginia trial judge who forced Mildred and Richard Loving to leave their state or go to jail, after all, grounded his ruling in religious beliefs, writing: Almighty God created the races white, black, yellow, malay and red, and he placed them on separate continents.
