I’ve always been proud to be from Minnesota, even though I’ve called Fargo home for the past 15 years or so. Today, however I’m even more proud.
Unlike the sideshow put on by our North Dakota legislators, much of which played out on a national level; law makers in Minnesota are stepping up and doing the right thing by allowing existing laws to apply equally to all loving couples.
It’s hard for me to even come up with one of my usual snarky wise-cracks. Ricky and I married in Canada in 2006, and not a single one of our neighbors has gotten divorced, nor has one parent or the other been forced to leave their household because we’re married.
Our grandkids know us as Grandpa and Poppa B. That’s all they’ve ever known, and all they ever will know. Poor Ricky is stuck with me for the long haul ’cause I’m never giving him up.
Now it’s up to the Senate, and conventional wisdom is there’s more support there than in the house.
Today’s Gay Agenda: Thank you Minnesota Legislators. You are leaders of honor and character that puts the well being of its citizens above partisanship and religious dogma.
