A vocal opponent of gay marriage sparked an audible outcry on the Minnesota House floor Monday, March 11, when he used a procedural tactic to introduce a close friend who left the "gay lifestyle."

"He was active in the gay lifestyle for about 10 years. And then he left it, got married and he now has three children," said Rep. Glenn Gruenhagen, R-Glencoe, as he introduced his friend, Kevin Petersen.
