Supporters of Marriage Equality in Minnesota Outraise Anti-Gay Opponents by $3.2 Million

The money momentum is on marriage equality in Minnesota, the AP reports:

MNMinnesotans United for All Families, which opposes the proposed gay marriage ban, raised $3.1 million from January through mid-June of 2012 alone — easily dwarfing the $1.4 million gay marriage foe Minnesota for Marriage has received since it began raising funds in mid-2011.

In all, Minnesotans United has raised $4.6 million to defeat the ban. The group has spent about $3 million of that total, while Minnesota for Marriage has spent about $900,000 so far.

Both groups submitted their fundraising totals Tuesday, the first in a series of election-year financial reporting deadlines for ballot measure campaigns.

Let's hope this translates into action at the ballot box.

    When has this EVER translated to success at the ballot box? We outspent the other side in California on prop 8.

    The problem isn’t the money…

    The problem is that we should not ever be voting on personal freedoms in a ballot box.

    These statistics do not count the money spent by churches, especially “in kind” contributions. And most of that money is tax-deductible. So in effect we are subsidizing the money the bastards use to deprive us of our rights. Tax the churches!

    Everybody knows the money came from anti-gay Christians who think that stopping two people who love each other from getting married is now more important than saving starving children. It should be plain to see that these anti-gay Christians are not really religious but evil and hateful people who care less about human life and love and would rather spend their money to stop somebody from having equal and civil rights in America.
    These anti-gay Christians are like the terrorist Muslims who also want to stop freedom in America.
