Brian Brown wants 'dignified and civil debate' in MN; sadly, NOM's coalition partner already ruined that

by Jeremy Hooper

In his latest e-blast, National Organization For Marriage president Brian Brown predicts the following for Minnesota's 2012 ballot fight:

In 2012, we hope, pray and expect that the people of Minnesota, after a dignified and civil debate, will join 31 other states in voting to protect marriage as the union of one man and one woman.

So that being the case, let us now take the opportunity to remind you of just a small sampling of the "dignified and civil debate" that NOM's coalition partner in the state, the Minnesota Family Council, has already put on the record:

6A00D8341C503453Ef014E889845C5970D

...then a majority of that public might just decide that dejecting gays with "abnormal" labels goes a teensy bit beyond where they care to take their state's future.
