"What I’m saying is, you cannot construct an argument for same sex-marriage that would not also justify philosophically the legalization of polygamy and adult incest"-Paul Stam

Paul Stam is a supporter of Amendment One, the constitutional amendment to provide that marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in the State.

VOTE AGAINST DISCRIMINATION! Vote Against Amendment One on May 8, 2012!

Monroe and Lupe participated in the WE DO campaign in Asheville, NC where same sex couples went and requested a marriage license.  Here is their story and the video of them requesting their license and being rejected because they are both men:

April 18, 1990 at 3:30 PM, Monroe picked up Lupe for their first date: champagne with strawberries on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Within a couple of inseparable weeks they spoke of the dream of children in the future and of a home to create with each other.

Eleven years later, 2001, Maria Grace Perez was placed into their arms, followed 2 years later with Beatrice Kai Perez and again 3 years later with Oliver Henry Perez.

On November 4, 2007 Lupe and Monroe were married in the Cathedral of All Souls, in their spiritual home and with their Faith community. They were surrounded by their loving families and friends. Incidentally, it was the first time that they kissed in public, at the altar.

Monroe and Lupe believe in and are dedicated to North Carolina, specifically Asheville. They both work for, dream and hope for a future where they enjoy marriage not only by the church, and their families, and their friends, but by the State and Country they call home.

North Carolina, on May 8, 2012, you will be given the opportunity to Vote Against Amendment One.  Amendment One is a way to legalize discrimination by adding an amendment to the NC state constitution that would ban same sex marriage, civil unions, and domestic partnerships.  Vote Against Amendment One on May 8!
