The New York Times reports that North Carolina lawmakers passed a measure Thursday "aimed at curtailing same-sex unions."
Here's my pesky question for the Times: Can you provide any facts — any facts at all — to back up that claim?
Or is this new state law — as the supporters claim — about protecting religious freedom?
To give a little background, you'll recall that the Times previously ventured down to North Carolina and provided mediocre coverage on what it labeled "so-called religious freedom bills."
This is the lede on the latest story:
DURHAM, N.C. — Defying the governor, lawmakers on Thursday enacted a law that allows state court officials to refuse to perform a marriage if they have a “sincerely held religious objection,” a measure aimed at curtailing same-sex unions.
