MN For Marriage praises, pushes letter calling marriage equality 'blatant rebellion against God's word'

by Jeremy Hooper

The campaign that's trying to push discrimination into the state constitution is press releasing a new letter in which a collation of Christians state their intent to vote in favor of civil inequality. Here's a snip from that letter

So people who support legal marriages like mine are showing apathy or hatred to my husband and myself? There are few things one could say to me that would be more extreme or offensive than that. But to this campaign? It's nothing more than voter outreach.

This year's clear and demonstrable animus towards LGBT people—not just marriage equality but people—is many times worse than I've seen in prior campaigns. We'll know next week just how many people buy into it. But regardless of outcome, we now have a case file from which these campaigns (led by Frank Schubert and NOM) will never escape. They might not care now. But those judges whom they'll one day declare "activist" will surely like to hear what went down over on history's wrong side.
