Do not encourage Minnesotans for Marriage and their attack on any form of family which does not fit their restrictive, blinkered views. Traditional marriage is a wonderful thing and it should be encouraged and celebrated. But traditional marriage is not only way. Minnesota for Marriage does not limit their prejudice to gay and lesbian couples. Heterosexual step-parents do not meet their standards. Nor do single parents, or adoptive parents, or those widowed, or non-married men and women raising their children together. Who will be next in the firing line if Minnesota for Marriage is given the approval to say what families are good and which are bad?
The popular information and advice web site, About.com has given an editorial that points out the harm in Minnesota's marriage amendment and urges a No vote. See GLAAD's Minnesota Vote page for more information.
