Ted Hancock

Campbell Law hosts Amendment One forum RALEIGH - A month before it will appear on the ballot, students of Campbell’s Norman A. Wiggins School of Law heard a panel of four speak for and against the controversial North Carolina Same-Sex Marriage Amendment on April 9. Sponsored by the student group Campbell Crossroads, the forum featured State Rep. and Campbell adjunct professor Rick Glazier, State Rep. and pastor Phil Shepard, lawyer and Amendment One proponent Anthony Biller and Methodist minister and co-founder of Faith in America Inc. Jimmy Creech. Biller and Shepard spoke as advocates

for, while Glazier and Creech spoke against Amendment one, which would define marriage in North Carolina as strictly between a man and a woman if approved. Same-sex marriage is already banned in the state, but the proposed measure would add the ban to the state constitution. Voters will decide on the amendment on May 8. If the amendment passes, North Carolina will join 12 other Southern states formally defining marriage as between a man and a woman.

achievements of Harnett County’s own Paul Green on the campus of Campbell University and in the neighboring towns on April 20-21. Festival-goers can learn about the local playwright and the things he believed in and fought for tirelessly. As Green once said, “The greatest sin society can commit is to cause a man to miss his own life.” Green grew up in Harnett County deeply convicted, he once said, by the immoralities of racial discrimination, military conflict and capital punishment. He often wrote of these things in his novels and dramas and began a new form of theater called the “symphonic drama.” Theater companies usually present these dramas on the sites depicted in the action; such is the case in one of Green’s most famous plays, “The Lost Colony.” Learn more at www.paulgreen.org.
