Oppose the constitutional amendment on marriage November 6

To the Editor:

I plan to vote no on the Minnesota capitol marriage amendment on the Nov. 2012 ballot. My goal is to gain support in opposing this amendment.

Lutheran church religious leaders and congregation members are able to have freedom to unite in union with the person they favor. No discrimination on preference or ability or type of choice can come between Lutheran synod members.

President Bush’s religion, the Episcopalian church, calls for full civil equality and has passed resolutions that allow for all preference  marriage unions where it is legal. They’ve even approved an official liturgy to bless such unions.

Both political spectrums are in support and agreement. Let’s join in and vote for liberty and justice for all.

Please do not favor one’s preference over another. Allow God to bond all marriage choices.

Chris Kluwe, the Minnesota Vikings punter and equality activist, supports voting no also. Go Vikings. Like the saying goes, if you can’t be an athlete please be an athletic supporter. Thank you. One doesn’t have to be partisan to be open minded to build a more tolerable state for everyone’s happiness.
