I mean the news out of Saint Paul. Via Minnesotans United for All Families:
A bipartisan group of legislative leaders announced a bill Wednesday morning to give same-sex couples the right to get married in Minnesota.
“It would simply allow folks who so desire, who have demonstrated a lifetime of love and commitment to get married,” said Sen. Scott Dibble (DFL-Minneapolis), a co-author of the bill. “We’re affirming things that we all prize, love at the center of marriage.”
The legislation aims to repeal Minnesota’s 1997 law that banned marriage between two people of the same sex.
Co-author Sen. Branden Petersen (R-Andover), is the first Republican state legislator to publicly support gay marriage in Minnesota. He said this bill “strengthens children, strengthens marriage and families and protects religious freedom.”
Despite Minnesota voters defeating an anti-gay marriage constitutional amendment in November, opponents of same sex marriage aren’t backing down.
