GetEQUAL Protesters Cause a Ruckus, get Arrested. Again.

You may be shocked to hear that GetEQUAL has done something disruptive and confrontational.

This time it happened in North Carolina, where legislators are considering a constitutional ban on marriage. GetEQUAL members scurried out onto the Assembly floor to shout for “liberty and justice for all,” and were promptly carted away.

According to a statement over at Pam’s House Blend, protestors “demanded full legal recognition for LGBT North Carolinians,” which sounds like a fine idea.

We’re looking at several more months of stunts like this, according to a timeline laid out by the Senate. The bill probably won’t be voted on until September, so if you missed yesterday’s rally, there’s still plenty of time to get arrested.
