  1. Remember on election day 2014 that all the Republicans on that Minnesota House Committee voted against marriage equality and all the Democrats voted yes. Another small example as to where our two major political parties stand on this fundamental equal rights issue.

  2. Civil Unions? Maybe the Supreme Court will go that way.

  3. Hallelujah! Thank you to the Lutheran Church, United Church of Christ, Minnesota Council of Churches, and all of the Christian denominations, pastors, and laity pushing for marriage in Minnesota.
