Amendments to define marriage as the union between one man and one woman passed in all three states including California where the State Supreme Court legalized homosexual “marriage” in May. With the addition of Florida, Arizona and California, a total of 30 states have now amended their constitutions to protect the sanctity of marriage.
Arizona voters, who rejected a marriage-protection amendment two years ago voted to protect marriage this time around.
In the past, efforts to allow the people of Minnesota to protect marriage via a marriage amendment were blocked by liberals in the state legislature. In 2008, a bill to legalize homosexual marriage was introduced in the Minnesota State Legislature. The bill immediately received 19 sponsors.
