Letter about marriage amendment

Fri, Oct 5th, 2012
Posted in Preston Letter to the Editor

To the Editor,

Gay marriage in Minnesota will be an everyday occurrence if the people telling you to vote no on the marriage amendment get their way. They’ll confuse you so you don’t vote and a non-vote is counted the same as a no vote. Iowa was once like us until an activist judge ruled that gay marriage can be legal. Iowa didn’t have a constitutional amendment on the definition of marriage as being between one man and one woman, that’s what we are voting on. The same non vote can be said about the voter ID Amendment on the ballot, a blank vote is really you saying you don’t think your constitutional right to vote should be protected by showing your ID. Cut this out and stick it on your refrigerator or take it with you on Election Day so you won’t be confused. Remember to vote YES on these 2 amendments on the ballot this election. Minnesota’s future depends on you. Please check the following website.,

There are a number of gay and lesbian couples in Lanesboro where I live part time. I have found them to be good neighbors and valuable members of the community. If they chose to marry I don't think it's any business of mine. I do not have the right to impose my values or religious beliefs on another person.

As for the voter ID proposal, I believe in democracy, which for me means I believe in making it as easy as possible for everyone to vote. I think the voter ID proposal is an answer to a problem that is virtually non-existent, unless our goal is to prevent certain groups of people from participating in our government.

Thank you for allowing me to express another point of view.
