Minnesota for Marriage criticizes N.Y. same-sex marriage legalization

Minnesota for Marriage — a coalition that includes the Minnesota Family Council, the National Organization for Marriage and the Minnesota Catholic Conference — criticized the legalization of same-sex marriage in New York. Lawmakers in the Empire State passed same-sex marriage last week, and the bill was signed into law by Gov. Andrew Cuomo late Friday night. Minnesota for Marriage said the vote in New York is why Minnesota needs an anti–gay marriage amendment to the state constitution.

“This is exactly why we need the constitutional amendment to protect marriage in Minnesota,” said Jason Adkins of the Minnesota Catholic Conference, the public policy arm of the Roman Catholic Church in Minnesota. “Marriage between one man and one woman has served mankind for all of recorded history as the building block of civilization and the best institution for children. Now marriage has been radically redefined in New York and gay marriage imposed without a vote of the people. Placing one-man, one-woman marriage in Minnesota’s Constitution ensures that only voters will ever be able to decide the meaning of marriage, not politicians.”

The Minnesota Family Council, which opposes rights for same-sex couples, said the amendment is needed so legislators don’t legalize same-sex marriage in Minnesota.

“Those who opposed placing the amendment before the voters said it was unnecessary, but the activities in New York show differently,” Chuck Darrell of the Minnesota Family Council said in a statement. “In fact, State Senator John Marty boasted that the Minnesota state legislature would force same-sex marriage on the people this year — just like in New York — without a vote of the people. Instead, our legislature wisely decided to let the people decide the issue of marriage — not politicians.”

NOM, which is part of the Minnesota for Marriage coalition, has promised to spend $2 million to defeat New York Republicans who voted in favor of marriage for same-sex couples in the 2012 election, at the same time the ban on same-sex marriage will be on the ballot in Minnesota.
