Vote for marriage amendment

Published 10:18am Thursday, October 11, 2012

On Nov. 6, marriage will be defined in Minnesota. Will it remain as a union between one man and one woman or will the definition eventually be changed to include same sex couples? If the definition of marriage is changed, based on the current state of discussion and changes in culture, will it be opened again at some future date to further redefinition? If marriage does not stand for something, it can eventually mean anything we want it to be. Please help me in not allowing this most sacred and fundamental cornerstone of society to be redefined in Minnesota. This is not about discrimination or bigotry it is about preserving the sexual complimentarity of husbands and wives for the good of children and society which until recently has always been supported by the state.

Sadly, if certain people have their way, marriage will be redefined, not by the people of Minnesota but by activist courts, judges and legislatures. By voting yes to the Marriage Protection Amendment, we can prevent this from happening. We have one shot to get this done, so please vote yes to the question on your ballot on whether you support marriage as the union of one man and one woman. If you do not vote it will count as a no vote. For more information on how you can help in these last days, please go to www.minnesotaformarriage.com.
