Mike Raven, the brother of a lesbian, said he started the petition because his sister was offended by the constitutional amendment that recently banned gay marriage in North Carolina.
“If this whole argument comes down to an intangible definition of marriage, then it’s time for that definition to change,” Raven explained at Change.org. “While we cannot change the oppressive and discriminatory way that some religions continue to define marriage, we can go to an even better place. I believe it is time to correct the definition of Marriage at our sources for what words mean: dictionaries.”
According to The Huffington Post, Raven’s target is not likely to change its definition any time soon.
