Here’s an opinion piece posted by Chuck Darrell, Director of Communications for Minnesota for Marriage. Mr. Darrell speaks to why traditional marriage is so important to society, yet provides nothing to indicate why allowing a same-sex couple to share their love would be so damning to that institution. In fact, the first comment posted reads:
This seems more like an argument against allowing divorce … than an argument against same sex marriage.
Remember, the people who are for this thing always rally behind the cry of “protecting marriage,” yet that’s really not what they are after. Marriage between one man and one woman is in no way “protected” by updating our state constitution to address something that is already disallowed in our state (remember, marriage is already clearly defined in the state of Minnesota and same-sex marriage is already prohibited).
So, while Mr. Darrell makes some great points on why marriage is beneficial to society, he fails to make a point on how allowing same-sex marriage would threaten the institution.
