The husband-and-wife, straight-ally team of Chris Weedy and the Rev. Jimmy Creech have started a craze. Weedy and Creech have been inviting their straight friends and neighbors to share photos and stories about their opposition to the anti-LGBT state constitutional amendment voters will consider in May 2012.

The couple is encouraging other straight-ally couples to speak out via a new Facebook page, “My Marriage Is Not Threatened By Gay Marriage in NC.”

Weedy writes, “Is your marriage threatened by gay marriage in NC? Of course not! If you are a heterosexual married couple in NC, show support to the gay community and opposition to the constitutional marriage amendment by posting here a recent photo of you and your spouse.”

More than a dozen couples have already shared photos on the new page.
