CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
In Charlotte on Tuesday night supporters of same-sex marriage held a vigil, and there was a large turnout. Eyewitness News spoke with some of them. Hundreds gathered in Marshall Park on Tuesday night, all with one message – equality for everyone, but not everyone believes it should be law.Through songs, poems and chants supporters of marriage equality made a resounding noise Tuesday and they're hoping Washington is listening. They said this issue is all about equal rights one they said every American deserves, but those in opposition said marriage should not be one of those rights. "They shouldn't be discriminated against. However, because they're in a union that cannot create life, we don't believe marriage should be open to people of same-sex orientation," said David Hains. "I came out here to let these people know that everybody don't agree with that," said William Grice. Grice was perhaps the only person who attended Tuesday's vigil who had a strong stance against same-sex marriage. "Two women, two men can't make babies. It don't work that way no matter how much they write it up or change, it don't work," he said. Equality North Carolina the group who hosted Tuesday's event said more vigils like these are expected. They're planning to take it on the road to Washington, D.C.
