Minnesota For Marriage (a.k.a Catholics for Voting Vatican Views)

by Jeremy Hooper

The "Minnesota For Marriage" (so-called) ballot campaign might be the most overtly Catholic effort I've seen in any of the states where our civil rights have gone before a public vote. A trend that now continues with this, an Advent Season prayer to keep gay taxpayers and their families less-than-equal:

To assist statewide efforts to defend and define marriage in the Minnesota Constitution, Archbishop John Nienstedt has issued a prayer intended for use as part of the Prayers of the Faithful at Mass.

Right. Because in a world as troubled as ours, what better way to use this Advent season than to paint loving gay Minnesotans as unfit for basic rights and protections under the law? I can only think of about ten million better prayer targets, what about you?

The reason for the season -- "Gee, us?"
