Minnesota Passed Anti-Gay Marriage Amendment

Written by 


The House of Minnesota placed an amendment to ban gay marriage in the November 2012 bundle. Minnesotans will be allow to decide if they want or not marriage equality.

The opposants said that they do not like where the amendment campaign could take Minnesota.

"Our campaign is hitting the ground running and we plan on using every resource available to defeat this anti-family constitutional amendment," said spokesman Donald McFarland of Minnesotans United for All Families.

If it passes, the constitutional amendment would prohibit gay marriage in Minnesota.

Tribune News reports Carly Melin, member of the newest House, worries about the children:

“Gay kids, gay teenagers, they don’t just live in Minneapolis, St. Paul and Duluth...” she said. “They live all over our state.”

With tears in her eyes, she told about a young lesbian couple in her northeastern Minnesota area. One of the women operates a hotline “so teenagers and children could call her and talk to her about being gay and lesbian. She said the children were scared because of the way society treats gays and lesbians.”
