Do you Think this will work for NC??

The United Church of Christ filed suit in North Carolina this week, challenging the state’s ban on marriage equality, but their argument comes with a twist: “Like dozens of marriage equality suits that have come before, this case – United Church of Christ v. Cooper – cites the constitutional rights to equal protection and due process under the Fourteenth Amendment, currently denied to gay and lesbian couples who wish to marry in North Carolina. But what makes the suit unique is its charge that the state’s marriage law also violates the First Amendment’s guarantee to freedom of religion – something typically used in arguments against LGBT equality, not for it.”

So, do you think this type of legal challenge will work in our favor?
