"To the person(s) who stole our Vote Yes yard sign in support of marriage between one man and one woman: I forgive you."

 

We in the pro-marriage movement know how often our pro-marriage yard signs are stolen.

This is not an isolated or rare occurrence -- it is an epidemic of theft and free speech suppression.

And yet, this Minnesota man chose to respond with love and forgiveness when his sign was stolen:

To the person(s) who stole our Vote Yes yard sign in support of marriage between one man and one woman:

I forgive you.

Are you really so afraid of democracy that you would break the law to silence my voice?

You can steal all of my yard signs, but you will not steal my vote.

Has someone stolen your yard sign? I hope not! I believe in free speech … even if I disagree with it.

I’d like to know how putting a yard sign out is hateful and bigoted ... and your action … is out of love and respect. -- Winona Daily News
