Brian Brown: We're not done wasting Minnesota voters' time

by Jeremy Hooper

Speaking to Minnesota Public Radio, the National Organization For Marriage's president has vowed to push again for an amendment banning marriage equality:

[Brian] Brown said his group supports another push for a constitutional amendment defining marriage in Minnesota.

"Clearly, Minnesota needs a constitutional amendment. The reality is that without it, judges could redefine marriage," Brown said. "In Minnesota, unfortunately, the amendment did not pass. But you still need an amendment; we will still push for it."
[MPR]

Need an amendment, Brian? Sure, the same way a fish needs an umbrella. Or the way Congress needs a dash of stagnancy. Or the way a full bottle of vodka needs more potential for recklessness.

What I'm saying: Discrimination is horrible and no one needs it. Not Minnesotans, not Californians, not currently married gay couples who are penalized under federal law, not binational couples who are forcibly split, not straight couples whose marriages are no more or less protected by anti-gay discrimination, not LGBT kids who are trying to come up in this world—none of us!
