Video: Minnesota for Marriage (made by God)

by Jeremy Hooper

I showed you one Minnesota For Marriage (so-called) ad yesterday. Now here's the other, also voiced by Kalley Yanta:

So once again, we have a state campaign making this, a conversation about civil marriage, all about the ancillary (even if oft-utilized) religious ceremonial component. Just to recap—we civil marriage equality activists are almost universally comfortable with churches denying us (or anyone) a marriage ceremony within their churches on the basis of their personal beliefs. But that's not enough. They want both the power to deny us in these houses of worship and in civil policy too.

Respect religious freedom? We totally do! It's the other side that neither respects religions that treat LGBT people, or respects the civil truths of a nation that supposedly respects certain crucial separations.
