Official 'MN For Marriage' proponent: Gays engage in 'acts of grave depravity'

by Jeremy Hooper

Along with the National Organization For Marriage and the Minnesota Family Council, the Minnesota Catholic Conference makes up the official coalition trying to write a discriminatory marriage amendment into the state's constitution. And to this end, this very same MNCC is pushing this kind of teaching on its website:

Fair enough. If they say that gays are engaging in "acts of grave depravity" and "contrary to the revelation of Jesus Christ" in the official campaign ads, then I won't have any problem. But if/when they start pushing the usual canards that deny the obvious, overarching motivations that go well beyond marriage itself? Well then I'm going to have a few things to say. And not only as a pro-equality fan of civil peace, but also as a card-carrying member of the "At Least Have the Principled Fortitude To Own Your Dished Crap" Society (ALHTFTOYDCS)!
