One small "incremental step" for OutFront - huge leap for state of Minnesota

By Chuck Darrell

According to the New York Daily news, the same day New Jersey legalized civil unions, Garden State Equality Chairman Steven Goldstein said "Civil unions are not marriage," and outlined a plan to legalize gay marriage in two years.

This same, no compromise, incremental strategy is well underway in Minnesota. In one week, OutFront Minnesota introduced two bills that
escalated their benefits campaign from a local government option, to a statewide mandate that would also redefine family, (domestic partner) to include an adult of the same sex.

This may be one small, "incremental step" for OutFront, but it's a huge leap for the state of Minnesota.

Call your representatives and tell them you don't want to redefine family in Minnesota.
