To the editor:
In reply to the letter to the editor entitled "Marriage amendment just a rallying point" - Passage of the proposed marriage amendment is admittedly a rallying point for all Minnesota voters. The purpose of a vote is to rally "we, the people" to make important decisions for our state. The only way all voters have a voice in clearly defining marriage is to pass this amendment.
An amendment can be changed or repealed in the futureby the voters. The reason for the outcry and concerted efforts against the marriage amendment must be that opponents fear they are in the minority and could not win a future vote. Would they prefer to look to an activist judge or the legislature to circumvent the will of the people? Let the majority speak - one way or the other.
Vote YES to assure that all Minnesota voters have a voice.
If you leave the ballot blank it counts as a "No" vote.
Vote NO if you want to take the decision about marriage out of the hands of the voters.
