Another sad day in the annals of Minnesota State History. We are on the wrong side of history, as time will prove out. Those who voted this in are as inept as those pushing this law, letting emotions rule the day when deviant sexual desires require special rights. Let the persecution/law suits against those who disagree begin. Homosexuality is not an immutable trait, which makes this whole charade that much more reckless. Will the US Supreme Court also be duped?

No, a proud day for our state.

history has already proven that legalizing SSM has really no effect on a society other than making it more moral and more humane.

Whether they like it or not, equality for all is on the horizon. Remember when blacks, women, Native Americans, Jews and other groups could not vote, have a bank account, own land etc? That changed much to their chagrin and so will this. YAY, Minnesota!

Wanting to marry someone you love is a deviant sexual desire? Hmmmm. If that were the case, why would they want to get married and be with one person for life? If all gays are sexual deviants, wouldn't they want to have as many sexual partners as possible?

Homosexuality is a deviant sexual desire. I love my parents and siblings, I even have male friends that I love, but that doesn't prompt me to want have sex with them or marry them. I would have to believe that homosexuality is something that it is not to ever consider the marriage charade.
It is a known fact that Homosexuals have many more partners than heterosexuals on the average. Allowing same sex marriage will not alter that fact. Hope this helps.

Orientation is in fact immutible. But that's not what we base rights on--religion is an entirely chosen entity. I guess we need to get rid of any rights based on religion, huh?
