Massachusetts has legalized gay marriages and civil unions are becoming more prevalent including recent legislative action in New Jersey and Vermont. Meanwhile, states like North Carolina are passing laws defining “marriage” only as a union between a man and a woman. We are at the tipping point in an extremely polarized battle that cuts to the heart of the meaning of marriage and family in America.
