Ha! It would be funny if it wasn’t true. Though, Republicans like Madeline Koch give me hope. There are many Minnesotans – on both sides of the aisle – that support equality and will vote NO in NOvember.
This is a great 2-minute clip of quotes from multiple sources. Over the past nine months, I’ve posted a variety of YouTube videos where Democrats and Republicans alike speak out against the Minnesota marriage amendment (Madeline Koch, Maureen Walsh, Steve Simon). In 2-minutes, the creator of this video does a great job in pulling them all together to summarize why this amendment is bad for Minnesota.
Worth the watch.
April 29, 2011: Republican Ally, Madeline Koch, addresses the Minnesota Senate asking leaders to vote no on adding the marriage amendment to the ballot.
The need for equality and the full acceptance of GLBT people is something Minnesota’s next generation of leaders has already embraced… Never before has our constitution sought to treat people unequally.
…I’d ask that you not let me down as my representatives by putting your own personal beliefs and benefits in the way of equality. Please vote no on these bills.
Thanks, Madeline. You inspire me.
