Now It’s Up to Us

The Minnesota Legislature passed a constitutional admendment defining marriage in this state as being between one man and one woman.

Now, it is up to us, the voters, to ratify this in the ballot box.

My friends, don’t assume this is a shoo-in. There are so many people out there who misunderstand what is at stake here. As I, and many others have said in the past, those who are pushing for “gay marriage” will argue that this admendment is discriminatory and a violation of human and civil rights, when in fact it has nothing to do with those; rather, it has all to do defining acceptable sexual behavior as it defines the family . It has to do with protecting what human nature and history has always known the human family to be. It has everything to do with defining in law what is in our very nature as humans.

Don’t be fooled by the civil rights argument. If you buy into that, then you have to accept the logical extension of that argument which can and eventually will include seeing marriage as a relationship of multiple individuals, or men/women with their pets. (Don’t laugh. I read recently where someone wants to do that.)

We cannot be silent or inactive. We must speak up and out. We must educate and clarify. Too much is at stake here.
