The national debate over gay marriage focused Tuesday on North Carolina, as voters decided whether to make it the 30th state to pass a constitutional amendment defining marriage as solely between a man and a woman.

Both trends indicate a wrong-headed direction based on bigotry and bias. Both are the result of a vocal and well-financed minority calling the tune for the masses.
And both will eventually be reversed whenever we achieve a more enlightened future for our country.
