MN: Three GOP Senators move to make gay scapegoat official state animal
Three more Republican state Senators are wasting their constituents' time and energy with the divisive belief that certain, largely faith-based views on marriage deserve exclusive codification within CIVIL law. This time, Minnesota:
St. Paul– Senator Warren Limmer (R-Maple Grove), Senator David Hann (R-Eden Prairie) and Senator Paul Gazelka (R-Brainerd) announced the introduction of a constitutional amendment that would give Minnesotans the opportunity to vote on the definition of marriage in the 2012 Election. All three senators chief authored similar constitutional amendments that were dropped Tuesday.
“The proposed constitutional amendment asks voters to define marriage as solely between one man and one woman in Minnesota. This issue constantly comes up during legislative sessions and it’s time for the people to decide. Allowing a small number of politicians, or activist judges in St. Paul to decide the definition of marriage would not be acceptable. We propose an early passage in the legislature this year, followed by a year discussion in our communities statewide in order to be prepared to vote in next year’s General Election,” said Senator Limmer.

Annoying for gays. But also for proprietors of MN's Mall of America, whose role as the state's biggest distraction will now be fully threatened.
