MN state campaign against *civil* marriage: Planted firmly in church's front yard

by Jeremy Hooper

This was the scene outside the Minnesota State Fair in St. Paul, where the so-called "Minnesota For Marriage" group set up its information booth:

Same NOM stock photos we're used to; same Catholic basis that we know underlies all of these campaigns against civil equality.

An interesting choice of locales, too, considering that a church is one building that no intended couple, same- of opposite-sex, is ever required to visit in order to enter into a civil marriage. Yet to learn of the campaign against marriage equality, the civil marriage opposition is requiring folks to cross a church/state sidewalk?

Fair enough, MN for Marriage. Just don't blame us for the trounced grass.
