voting YES says:
This is not about hating anyone. It simply comes down to honoring God.

EW says:
If gay marriage dishonors God, then so does divorce, but I don't see you pursuing an amendment to make divorce illegal. The scariest thing about voting yes is that this becomes permanent and there is no opportunity in the future to change it.
Most people dont' realize what voting yes truly means. Voting no does not make gay marriage legal in MN, it simply means it can be discussed later.

You are correct that divorce also dishonors God, but there is a significant difference in the way scripture speaks of divorce (of which Jesus says - was permitted because of the hardness of our hearts) and homosexuality which is not specifically permitted, but consistently forbidden. You are also correct in that voting "no" does not make gay marriage legal, but it does leave the door open for legislators or courts to do so. I believe you are incorrect in stating that voting "yes" permanently closes that door. If it should happen to pass, it could be overturned in the future by a similar vote to amend the constitution. What voting yes does is communicate to legislators and the courts that the will of the people is to continue to define marriage as "one man and one woman" as it has been for the past 200 years. This does not in any way prohibit same sex relationships from being recognized as loving, committed relationships, which many of them are. It does not suggest that same sex couples are less human or less important than heterosexual couples. It simply reinforces the truth that God instituted marriage specifically as a relationship between one man and one woman. It has been that way from the beginning of creation, and whether or not we choose to define it differently will not change that truth. I believe the marriage amendment will not prohibit same sex relationships and at the same time promote a more stable society.
