Two days after vandals spray painted an anti-gay slur, the North Carolina State University student government rejected a proposed plan to ban gay marriage in the state, WRAL reported.

Vandals on Monday night spray painted the words “fags burn” and “die” across the door and an adjacent display case at the school's GLBT Center. Campus police have classified the crime as a “hate situation.”

At its Wednesday meeting, the student senate approved a resolution opposing a proposed far-reaching amendment that would make it unconstitutional for North Carolina to recognize gay and lesbian couples with marriage, civil unions and possibly even domestic partnerships.

“North Carolina State is the people's university,” said student senator Harris Do. “At the end of the day, by fighting for the rights of our Wolfpack family at State, we are also fighting for the rights of all North Carolinians.”

The resolution was approved with an overwhelming 29-6 vote.

The governing body also approved a resolution in support of diversity.
