Something Nice from Minnesota
Evangelical Lutherans Voted against endorsing a ban on Gay marriage disappointing the Catholic who do endorse the ban.
Yes I'm bombarding you with posts about gay issues.
Minneapolis-area Lutherans on Friday went on record against changing the state Constitution to define marriage as between one man and one woman.
Their vote made them one of the largest faith groups yet to formally oppose the amendment that will go before voters Nov. 6, which would ban same-sex marriage in Minnesota. Close to 700 Lutherans, representing congregations in the Minneapolis Area Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, voted on a resolution opposing the amendment at the group's annual assembly at a Prior Lake church.
Thanks folks every little bit means a lot!
Last April guess who Minnesota Republicans offered a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage! What party is that yet again!
"Its disturbing that Republicans want to use one of the last weeks of the legislative session to marginalize one group of people and divide our state," Sen. Scott Dibble of Minneapolis said. "We are facing a $5 billion budget shortfall, yet Republicans believe the biggest threat to our state's welfare is who is allowed to be married."
Like the old seafarer maps that indicated there be monsters & demons here!
several Republican lawmakers -- including Rep. John Kriesel and Wheelock Whitney, a former gubernatorial candidate -- launched a drive to defeat the amendment. In fact, Whitney has already donated $10,000 to the effort.
Both men said they are working to raise awareness and funds because they feel the initiative goes against their party's core values.
Had to show some balance & point out that they aren't all loathsome floaters & demons
