Minnesota for Marriage has been showcasing some of the best examples of testimony given today in opposition to the bill to redefine marriage -- read for yourself:
Grace (age 11) testified in the House Civil Law hearing today. She asked the Committee: "Which parent don't I need, my mom or my dad?"
The committee had no answer for her.
Doug (gay man): "marriage isn't about love, commitment and responsibility--it's about kids. Ignore the media push and adult demands for same-sex marriage."
"It's not homophobic to oppose same-sex marriage!"
"MN legislators, passing this bill says your wife or husband is not important in the raising of your children!"
Prof. Robert Lopez (humanities scholar, bisexual man):
"Couples deserve to have love recognized, but I know as a child raised by my lesbian mother and her partner that there is something missing when a child is raised by 2 same-sex parents."
"We've heard a lot from same-sex marriage activists who feel they’ve earned property rights to children, but we haven’t heard enough from children’s rights advocates in a full debate."
