MN For Marriage doesn't realize they lost (twice)

by Jeremy Hooper

Minnesota for Marriage failed to place a marriage ban into their state constitution, and then the same organization failed again to stop a pro-equality bill from making its way to the governor's desk. The equality movement won, and marriage equality is now a reality in the state. Yay.

But more than just about any other state group that lost its fairly fought battles, Minnesota For Marriage seems to be in some weird state of denial. The organization maintains an active presence in the state, as if they can do anything to change the now-settled reality. They are also still very active on social media, continuing to raise a stink about stuff like this:

It's not a "wedding"—it's a wedding. Even if MN for Marriage loathes and disrespect the wedding (and let's be clear: they do), the wedding is still very much a reality. They can smear quote it all they want, but they cannot deny its legality. They tried that; they failed.

You really have to wonder why this twice-failed coalition thinks it has the capital here. Telling supporters to call into a radio show and berate the on-air team for recognizing reality? What hubris! Or perhaps delusion is the better word.
