MN Gov. Dayton Claims Gays and Lesbians Seek "The Sanctity" of Marriage

 

Governor Mark Dayton uses the accusation that Minnesota Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch's had an extra-marital affair as an opportunity to push "the sanctity" of gay marriage on Minnesota Public Radio:

“I think it underscores that sanctity of marriage is important to most Minnesotans and people who are in same-sex relationships believe in that sanctity also and want a chance to participate in the sanctity in the same way as heterosexual couples,” Dayton told MPR’s All Things Considered, before suggesting that Republicans would be hypocritical in pursuing the measure [to define marriage as between one man and one woman]." -- Think Progress
