There are two sides to this and the media is only showing one. But a traditional family, one man and one woman, is the best chance kids have. We are supposed to love each other, but when it comes to any sort of sexual intimacy between two people of the same sex, it is a sin.

Yesterday, I shared an article that looked at the differences between voters, young and old. It is important to note that previous elections show that older voters, like Fickert, typically support marriage amendments. However, it is equally important to note that not all older votes are in favor of writing inequality into the state constitution – nor all young voters against an amendment like this.
If you have any doubt, check out this video put together by Minnesota for Marriage that highlights a wide-spectrum of voters that express their support of the amendment.
We can’t limit our conversations and engagement to any one group; if we’re going to beat this thing, we need to engage both young and old!
