Same-Sex Marriage Debate
The U.S. Supreme Court could hand down landmark rulings on same-sex marriage as soon as Thursday. That debate was front and center in The Mountains tonight. A panel of experts on both sides of the issue answered questions from our viewers during the News 13 Town Hall Forum.
North Carolina is one of 30 states that has banned gay marriage, but tonight's forum showed the issue is still very much up for debate.
Emotions ran high as dozens of people on both sides of the issue gathered to voice their opinion. No question or topic was off-limits as audience members quizzed panel members on everything from parental rights, personal rights, religion, and benefits.
Questions came from the in-studio audience and social media. News 13's Darcel Grimes spent the night monitoring the Digital Desk.
The debate continues online. Weigh in on our News 13 Facebook page, tweet @wlos_13 with #wlostownhall.
