Garrison Keillor helped share Minnesota with the world through A Prairie Home Companion. Now he wants the world to know that he doesn’t support the mean-spirited marriage amendment on ballots this fall:
I didn’t like the tone or the feeling of the constitutional amendment. It seemed punitive. It seemed unnecessary.
Love trumps government, and government should not stand in the way of people who love each other.
And so, Keillor volunteered to help the campaign. According to KSTP, nearly 1,000 people donated to Minnesotans United in hopes of winning a coffee date with the Lake Wobegon storyteller. Keillor will also record an outgoing voice mail message for the winner.
Great to see real Minnesotans standing up for equality across this entire state.
