GOP Congressional Candidate Calls NC’s Same-Sex Union Ban Bad For Business

Edwin Peacock, a Republican congressional candidate for North Carolina’s 9th district, has broken party lines and come out against the widely misunderstood Amendment One, which bans all same-sex unions in the state.

ThinkProgress reports that Peacock told a local NBC affiliate: “I think we need to look at who are we welcoming here. You look at our top five employers, every single one of them has clearly embracing inclusiveness and in general in their behavior as it relates to some of the benefits that they offer.”

      FINALLY! They are starting about the business aspect of allowing same sex partnerships in the united states. Economically, allowing same sex partnerships is a wise thing to do. Think think of the untapped monetary potential.

      While yes, his argument is true, he is being a typical insincere and dismissive right-winger.
