  • How quickly they forget

    A story in today’s paper made me both smile and roll my eyes just a little. Last July, the state of Minnesota was embroiled in discussions as to if a constitutional amendment enshrining discrimination against gay people should be put to a public vote.

    The legislature was able to get that on the ballot.

    Unfortunately, they weren’t able to reach agreement on financial matters, and state agencies had to shut down until everyone could decide to play nice again.

    For those of you not from Minnesota, our state parks are a really big deal. They’re a huge source of employment and revenue for the state and the individual communities. Our legislators letting them close at the peak of travel season was a travesty.

    The fact the #1 priority of conservatives was getting the anti-gay marriage amendment on the ballot at all costs was truly shameful.

    Now, 9 months later, it seems they’ve had a change of heart.

    After the discrimination amendment being voted down, the evil liberals now insist state laws should apply to all married couples, not just opposite gender married couples.

    As you know, a number of states recognize same gender marriage as do a significant number of western countries

    I’ve always wondered why conservatives don’t get up in arms about equal protection laws applying to Hindi or other non-Christian marriages.

    But I digress.

    I’ve predicted for years that this issue will come down to a civil rights/equal protection issue and the whole ‘moral’ issue will go by the wayside. I think that’s going to be the case here.

    Today’s Gay Agenda: Continue to wonder why the party of ‘moral values’ expects everyone to forget their position just a few months ago. Curious if anyone notices the Hindi marriage photo seems to include an Indian woman and what appears to be a nice Midwestern boy. :)
