It's unconscionable that either side of this amendment controversy should resort to acts of vandalism, but I understand it does stir our emotions to the most knee reactions.
I have over the years opened my heart and mind to the possibility that we are all "children of God" and "created equal". These are not exclusionary ideas but rather complimentary. One person in this article was quoted to have said,“Marriage is between a man and a woman. When you try to redefine things, when you try to change our basic building blocks, it's like you're ripping out foundation." Slavery has been a building block of civilization. Every great or empirical nation, including our own, was build on the backs of slaves. Was it right? Of course not. Did the thought of emancipation enrage, debase, and frighten slave owners whose livelihoods depended on it? Absolutely. Did it need to change? Of course it did.
Taking strides to create equality in all people is the right thing to do. But it scares people who feel their sense of morality or life's foundation is at risk. Status quo makes people feel secure, but it also stagnates the hope of growth as a community. This November we are being asked to define what we believe 'equality' means. Is it to perpetuate spiritual slavery or free people to live loving, commited lives?
We Minnesotans have prided ourselves on standing above the fray, doing what's right for all people regardless of personal interests or security. I think it's a lesson learned over decades of pulling together to fight the life threatening, harsh winters. We are 'Minnesota nice' for a reason; because we are reasonable people. This November do the right thing for all of us. Stand above the fray. Vote "NO" Minnesota.
