Raleigh singer Clay Aiken took a stand against Amendment One to a national audience Wednesday night on CNN.
Aiken, who is gay, said he was concerned that North Carolina voters passed the amendment, which defined marriage as a union between a man and women.
Aiken said a majority of the voters have essentially written discrimination into the state’s constitution but he believes voters will overturn it in the near future. He also lauded the President Obama for coming out and supporting gay marriage Wednesday.
He’s coming out and speaking up about something that obviously only has 40 percent support from North Carolinians,” said Aiken. “So, it’s very brave of him.”
Aiken said Mr. Obama’s support for gay marriage shows equality in the Tar Heel State is important to him.
“I think that speaks to his character a lot,” said Aiken. “You know, it’s not all about politics. It’s about what’s right.”
