Senator Bachmann is completely ignorate of the fact the people would leave Minnesota if this constitutional amendment is passed. What makes this state great is the fact we value diversity instead of trying to legislate it out of existance.

Despite the land of 10,000 lakes, who would want to live here knowing someday that they maybe targeted for discrimination because of some warped political agenda.

You folks need to leave these poor gays alone.
Now let Satan go about his business filling hell to capacity.
You must not forget that eternity is a long time and once Christ returns and establishes his new kingdom, then Satan is out of business.
As we approach the last days Satan has to work overtime.
Its kind of like stocking up firewood for a long winter.

I think you people who support this are all hypocrits. Remember "let those who have not sinned, be the first to cast a stone". You probably know a lot of gay people and don't even know it because they are afraid of people like those pushing this amendment. This country was founded on FREEDOMS and should stay that way. All the Gay and Lesbian community are asking for is the equal rights under the law for all. Not just the straight folks. They should not lose their home when their partner dies because family of the deceased are homophobic. They should not have to go into bankruptcy because of medical bills because they could not afford medical insurance for their partner who would have been covered if they were married. This is what this is about. Let's try to remember that.

Not just FREEDOM. CONTROLLED freedom is what we need, my friend. Don't you realize the core of many our social problems is caused by freedom that has gone out of control plus poor parenting?

Think about it.

Right but we are talking about controlled freedoms and the special rights and privilages that come with the freedom to marry who you want that are denied to part of our population who want equal rights. Gay people want to be treated equally as we are entilted under the constitution. As far as the breakdown of marraige, that is not the fault of gay people since we are not allowed to legally marry, that is a hetersexual problem that they should be addressing in their own community since they have not handled or controlled to well.

My goodness, do any of you seriously think this is going to matter in 10 years? So what if they pass it. It doesn't really change anything anyway. DOMA already established marriage in MN as a union between one man and one woman. This is just a disgusting display of election year politics and a waste of legislative time and tax payers dollars. If people got nearly as fired up about funding education or transportation in this state as they do over this issue...gosh! All our kids would be college educated and we'd find a solution to the fossil fuel crisis. What a waste of intellect and effort. With gas at nearly $3.00 a gallon you'd think people would eb able to focus on something that actually impacts their daily lives.

WHY NOT LET PEOPLE MARRY THE FAMILY PET, HOW ABOUT MARRYING YOUR 13yr OLD NEPHEW OR NIECE, THEY ALL HAVE RIGHTS ALSO. WHERE DO WE STOP THE IMMORALITY?
okay, now that you ask... why not. it's none of your business, is it? if you don't want to marry rover or fluffy, then don't. according to bublical history as soon as a young woman began to menstruate she was of marriagable age, meaning that she was a woman. if it's biblical, then why do you call it immoral?

You'll say and justify whatever you want. I am not in a position to judge anyone. Whatever religion you believe, your God will decide if what you've done is right or wrong.
All I know, if everyone turns into gay/lesbian, the world will come into an end. Human beings will stop to evolve. Scary thought. There's already enough problems in this world. Let's not add anymore.

Well, the world has ways with dealing with that doesn't it? Not everyone will be gay or lesbian. We are only a small portion of an overyly large animal population that is decimating this planet called homosapian. We are not adding to the problem, we are all part of the problem. We are overpopulating the world with our species with disregard to other species and natural resources. These are worthy problems, but my problem right now is that I am not able to access the same rights as others in a country where I am guaranteed these rights so I will fight for them as well as my fights against the misuse of this planet.

now there's a bit of good old fashioned paranoia.

listen... while personally i wouldn't be all that chuffed if the world did come to an end but there is no way possible that the idea of gay marriage will make every straight person in the world run out and become same sex oriented. it just doesn't work that way so you don't have to worry on that score, okay?

relax... breathe in, breathe out, breathe in, breathe out... feel better now?
