In June, the Good Samaritan United Methodist Church welcomed Catholics from across the state for a kickoff event for Catholics that oppose the marriage amendment. Several hundred people gathered to understand what they could do to help defeat this mean-spirited amendment.
Scott Dibble, DFL-Minneapolis, had this to say at the event:
A lot of statements have come from the archdiocese to the contrary, but we were raised as Catholics with a sense of social conscience to stand up for those who are struggling—for full rights, for equality, for recognition.
It’s great to see people of all religious backgrounds coming together in opposition to this amendment. Hopefully, these folks will be able to have many conversations leading up to this fall and help others understand that love is love.
Note: Minnesotans United for All Families has added a “Catholics Vote No” bumper sticker to their online store.
