Children at a very young age, as early as kindergarten, will be taught in school that marriage is between any two adults, no matter what they have been taught at home, in church or in their ethnic traditions. Under that kind of law, those who believe otherwise will be treated as racists and bigots.

Earlier today I shared that I’m concerned we’re not taking a more preemptive approach in addressing the types of scare tactics amendment supporters will use to get voters on their side. The above is a perfect example of how the other side is already using these tactics. While the reach of Minnesota for Marriage YouTube videos is somewhat limited, they set the strategic tone the campaign will take this fall in their commercials and get-out-the-vote efforts.
While I think the Grandparents ad we’ve run is great, I worry that it only speaks to our base supporters. It doesn’t address a single concern that Frank Schubert and his team are bound to address. Instead, it follows a similar approach that other states have used – and we know how all of those turned out.
