MPR has a series of photos from Sunday’s Rosary Walk in St. Paul to support the “marriage amendment” – the constitutional amendment that would define marriage as between one man and one woman, and which would prohibit same-sex couples from getting married. Thousands of Catholics showed up to march. These are religious people who believe that the government should make a decision that violates church-state separation, who believe that our gay family members, friends, neighbors and co-workers shouldn’t be allowed to enter a civil contract because they think their god and their little book says it’s wrong. I cried when I saw this photo. All of these people are marching for inequality, bigotry and are willing to place a vote in November that would deny basic rights that they (likely) all enjoy and take for granted.
We must go to the polls in November and vote against this hateful would-be amendment. We need to bury it.
