Protestors hit the streets of downtown Wilmington

Sunday, July 29th, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY)– More than 50 people marched through downtown Wilmington today protesting what they call a blurring line between the separation of church and state.

“America is betraying and violating our separation of state from church,” said protester Larry Center.

The fallout from the Amendment One decision in North Carolina is still having its effects throughout the state.

“We are advocating change of the preamble, repealing of Amendment One, and essentially any other civil rights related issue that is relevant to separation of church and state,” said Sam West, the protest organizer.

Many people downtown found the group’s message and signs offensive but that did not stop them from marching on.

“It’s pretty disturbing how they have a sign saying ‘God hates you’ because I’m religious,” said spectator Quentin Asche. “I’m a Christian and I don’t think that God hates me.”

For some of the protesters the main goal was to show their disappointment with the Amendment One vote. For others they just simply wanted to share that not everyone has religious views.

“I mean this is a pretty conservative area where churches have a lot of power. I think that a group of people like this, coming out on a Sunday in the late summer, is a very powerful statement,” said protester Ed Tilley.

The protest originally started with a Craigslist ad. Organizers say depending on the interest following this event they may eventually do another march.
