Madonna Supports the Freedom to Marry

Madonna took to the stage at the Xcel Center [in St. Paul, Minnesota] last night to urge fans to Vote No on the Minnesota Marriage Amendment.

"We are a Democracy and we should have the freedom to choose who we want to marry!" the Material Girl screamed, before enjoining the crowd in a call and response. "Did you hear what I said? Are you going to vote no? Are you going to vote no?"

Grand Forks Herald Urges Minnesotans to Vote NO

On Tuesday, conservatives in Minnesota are hoping to put the contentious issue of marriage beyond reach. Like the court, they’re using coercion first — using a constitution to rob opponents of power — and hoping persuasion will follow.

Though America seems riven along party lines, the U.S. Constitution and the constitutions of each state are bulwarks of stability. They’re solid ground, not battlegrounds. Let’s keep it that way. Vote no.

Help Get Out the Vote One Last Time on November 6, 2012!

“This is a landmark year for securing our rights here in Washington State and we need every last moment available to make this fight result favorably for equality,” said Sarah Toce, editor-in-chief of The Seattle Lesbian and co-director of Social Outreach Seattle. “When a minority’s rights are being voted on by the majority, it’s never okay. We are going to make history in Washington State and every single vote will count.”

Chris Kluwe Quits St. Paul Pioneer Press Over Marriage Equality Amendment Editorial

Chris Kluwe, Minnesota Vikings punter and outspoken proponent of marriage equality, has resigned as a contributor to the St. Paul Pioneer Press in the wake of the paper's editorial on the upcoming vote on Amendment 1, which, if passed, will embed inequality into the Minnesota state constitution.

The Pioneer Press' editorial likely rankled Kluwe in two ways. The editors go to great pains to criticize proponents of marriage equality. But this was the more forgivable problem. More important is the fact that they made their case in the most nonsensical way possible.

Ads mislead voters about same-sex marriage in Mass. schools

Maine voters may remember the Parkers’ case from the last marriage fight in 2009. But voters should also know that Massachusetts is not, in fact, teaching children to read, write, and have same-sex marriages. In 2006, a teacher in Lexington did read second-graders a book about a prince who marries another prince. But it wasn’t a regular subject; a federal circuit court that later reviewed the case noted there was no formal curriculum related to the issue.
