To the editor:
Remember last year when opponents of the Marriage Amendment to the MN constitution said "We already have a law against same sex marriage; we don't need this amendment"? Well guess what?
SF 925 and HF 1054 are two bills that would amend the state's definition of marriage to include same-sex couples, I urge you to call or write your representatives ask them not to support the redefining of traditional marriage
Eleven-year-old Grace Evans stood in front of the Minnesota legislative committee on House Civil Law this year, and asked the question: "Which parent do I not need, my mother or my father?" She had to ask them twice; and still got no answer. That same day, she was attacked by the social media, labeled a bigot. Later attacked with foul language, death wishes, and calls for the Child Protection Services to take her away from her parents. - Tolerance?
In essence, this whole movement is about destruction of marriage and indoctrination of children into the homosexual lifestyle. As homosexual journalist Daniel Valarreal pointed out in the Mar. 12, 2011 "Queerty" titled; "Can we Please Just Start Admitting that We do actually Want to Indoctrinate Kids?" He says: "Why would we push for anti-bullying programs or social studies classes that teach kids about the historical contributions of famous queers unless we wanted to deliberately educate children to accept queer as normal?"
"Being queer means pushing the parameters of sex and family, and in the process, transforming the very fabric of society. ... We must keep our eyes on the goal ... of radically reordering society's views of reality."

"A middle ground might be to fight for same-sex marriage and its benefits and then, once granted, redefine the institution of marriage completely, to demand the right to marry not as a way of adhering to society's moral codes but rather to debunk a myth and radically alter an archaic institution. [Legalizing "same-sex marriage"] is also a chance to wholly transform the definition of family in American culture."
