Another great resource from Minnesotan’s United on why Minnesota voters should vote NO on the mean-spirited amendment this NOvember. Here are a couple of bullet points from the one-pager:
- Marriage is about love and commitment. Gay and lesbian couples want to marry for similar reasons as anyone else – to make a lifetime promise of love and commitment. Love belongs to everyone.
- Here in Minnesota, we believe in the Golden Rule—treating others as we would want to be treated ourselves. It is not up to us to judge how someone else finds happiness. Everyone should be allowed to live how they want to live, and it’s not my place to interfere with someone’s happiness just because I may disagree with them.
- This Amendment Takes Away A Fundamental Freedom. Marriage is a fundamental freedom that should not be denied to anyone. In our country and our state, freedom means freedom for everybody.
This could be a nice educational one-pager to hang up in your office or cube. It also provides information on what the amendment is and how you can find out more. Thanks to our friends at Minnesotans United for continuing to provide resources for the rest of us!
