Thanks to the NOM TV ad, (see below) and local media, the plan to impose homosexual marriage on Minnesota by passing a bill in the state legislature in 2011 is being exposed. A recent article in the Daily Planet reported that Amy Johnson, Executive Director of OutFront, the most powerful GLBT lobbying organization in Minnesota “…says her organization is ready for the battle. ‘Certainly, Minnesota is one of the last battlegrounds," she said in an interview today, where the marriage issue has not been settled with court decisions or state constitutional amendments.
"Johnson was upbeat on the prospects for same-gender marriage in next year's legislative session, though, calling it ‘imminent...if we get a good governor [in the 2010 election], and if we keep a hold of a few seats in the House, we will see equality in 2011.’”
It was also reported that Matt Entenza, one of several DFL gubernatorial candidates all pushing for homosexual marriage said, "Groups like NOM, pushing their agenda, would do well to remember that once upon a time we didn't allow people of different races to marry, either. Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it."
Playing the race card is a favorite trick of those who support redefining marriage. Most African Americans don’t support homosexual marriage however. In fact, Pastor Bob Battle of the COGIC in St. Paul sees it differently. Battle correctly states that homosexual “marriage” and interracial marriage have nothing in common. Allowing a black man to marry a white woman didn’t change the definition of marriage as it remained between a man and a woman. Allowing two men or two women to marry completely changes the nature and purpose of marriage.
Further, there is no civil right to deny children their mothers or fathers, which is exactly what every same-sex marriage does. There is no civil right to conduct a vast, untested social experiment on children.
Mr. Entenza, are you saying that a child doesn’t need a mother or a father?
