North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory veto the Anti-Gay SB2

This is great news for North Carolinas

Conservative state lawmakers passed SB2, a bill that would've allowed government employees to discriminate against gay couples by denying marriage licenses.

They sent the bill up to Governor Pat McCrory, but he vetoed it. In a press release, he said:
"I recognize that for many North Carolinians, including myself, opinions on same-sex marriage come from sincerely held religious beliefs that marriage is between a man and a woman. However, we are a nation and a state of laws. Whether it is the president, governor, mayor, a law enforcement officer, or magistrate, no public official who voluntarily swears to support and defend the Constitution and to discharge all duties of their office should be exempt from upholding that oath; therefore, I will veto Senate Bill 2."
I bet their faces are cracked!
