Thanks to all of you who contacted your senators in advance of this week's 38-27 vote to pass the Minnesota marriage amendment. The bill now goes to the House where we are hearing rumors that some House members are talking of tabling the amendment until next year.
We need your help today! Gay marriage activists know they aren't likely to defeat the amendment this year—and would like nothing better than to push the vote off for another year.
The people of Minnesota deserve a full and open campaign to decide the future of marriage. Putting a vote off until 2012 means an abbreviated conversation about marriage that is overshadowed in the midst of a presidential race. The only ones served by putting this vote off are gay marriage advocates, not Minnesota voters or Minnesota families.
