(CNSNews.com) — Members of the North Carolina General Assembly introduced a bill on Tuesday, citing the 10th Amendment, which affirms that the U.S. Supreme Court exceeded its authority under the Constitution and in relation to the “decree of Almighty God” by legalizing same-sex marriage, and contends that the Obergefell v. Hodges decision “is null and void” in North Carolina and that the Tar Heel state shall only recognize marriages between one man and one woman.
The legislation explains that North Carolina seeks to follow the 2012 law that was established in Section 6 of Article XIV of the North Carolina Constitution, which defines marriage as being between one man and one woman. The new bill would also affirm that same-gender marriages performed in other states are not valid in North Carolina.
The legislation, H.B. 780, the Uphold Historical Marriage Act, was sponsored by N.C. House members Larry Pittman (R-Cabarrus), Michael Speciale (R-Beaufort), and Carl Ford (R-Rown).
