Hey, Minnesota for Marriage, why'd you leave out the rabbis' more extreme condemnations?
The so-called Minnesota For Marriage coalition has issued the following statement, purported to be the representative Jewish view on equality:
But here's the interesting part. Back in February, the same rabbis who head up the above statement issued a very similar statement, written in the same template. Only thing? This earlier statement went much further and admitted that the rabbis are not only against marriage equality but also "HOMOSEXUAL ACTS":
It's obvious why Minnesota For Marriage (so-called) left out the anti–"homosexual acts" stuff: they both want and need more moderate voters to see their campaign as only about the issue of marriage. Conduct even a cursory search for the facts, and you will learn that this is a lie. The "protect marriage" agenda is much more anti-gay than any of these campaigns would have you believe.
Wake up, Minnesotans—you have a precious governing document to protect.
