Bradlee Dean takes credit for anti-gay marriage measure on Minnesota ballot for 2012

On his blog, controversial minister Bradlee Dean of You Can Run But You Cannot Hide ministries took credit for the passage of a bill that put a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage on the ballot in 2012. Dean said that he’s been “attacked” by the media who are pushing an “illegal agenda” and claims — incorrectly — that sodomy is against the law in the United States. “I believe that I have done my duty,” he wrote. “The people of the great state of Minnesota now have the power to vote. It is now up to you to decide for your posterity what kind of future that you want to have for them. The power is in your hands.”

Dean complained about the treatment he has received by the media. “When doing high schools across the country we noticed that when the media began to push an illegal agenda called the gay agenda (sodomy is illegal in this country) we started getting attacked from the media,” he wrote.

Sodomy laws, which were often used to imprison gays and lesbians as recently as the 1980s, were declared unconstitutional in Minnesota in 2001 and nationwide in 2003.

Dean has frequently spoken of the need to enforce sodomy laws against gays and lesbians who he views as criminals.

“All the way up until 1961 it was illegal in every state to commit the crime of sodomy. Homosexuality was considered a mental illness up until 1973. There has also never been any such thing as gay marriage in the history of mankind. So, for simply inciting the laws of the land in which the radical homosexuals hate so much, I became a target,” he wrote. “The radical homosexuals want to re-educate America by teaching people of all ages to hate the laws that expose their crimes. So the next time you hear ‘hate crimes,’ remember that is the criminal who hates the law.”

He added, “It is like a bunch of criminals standing around a good cop trying to threaten him that if he enforces the laws of the land towards crime, he is guilty of ‘hate.’”

Dean wrote that he believes gay marriage is part of a larger conspiracy.

“This is not about homosexuals getting married; this is about a government-backed agenda,” he wrote. “Radical leaders are using the homosexual communities as a political battering ram to overthrow all sense of right and wrong. Not a good place to put yourself.”

Dean also says that despite calling for the criminalization of gays and lesbians, he loves homosexuals.

“Time and time again, I have loved sinners (including homosexuals) so much that I have warned them of their sins before a just and a holy God; I have warned them of the consequences of their lifestyles; and have even warned them of their impending dangers (contracted diseases from their sins). Unfortunately, my love has been misconstrued to mean hate (read John 7:7 and Psalm 109).”

He concluded:

My objective has always been to seek and save that which was lost – homosexual or not. That is my duty. All sinners are my objective. The homosexual agenda got in front of me and I simply dealt with it in a Biblical, historical, and legal perspective. And I will continue to do so if circumstance calls for it.

You Have Won the Vote in Minnesota

I believe that I have done my duty. The people of the great state of Minnesota now have the power to vote. It is now up to you to decide for your posterity what kind of future that you want to have for them. The power is in your hands. I rest my case.

Some DFLers have already seized on Dean’s support of the amendment by naming it after Dean.

When the amendment was about to pass the Minnesota House two weeks ago, Rep. Carly Melin, DFL-Hibbing, tweeted, “Bradlee Dean Amendment placed on the calendar for this evening.”

Senate District 44 DFLers recently tweeted. “MNGOP knows they are on the wrong side of history by passing the Bradlee Dean amendment. It WILL be defeated in 2012.”
