Your View: Both amendments would deny civil rights

— We are Catholics who will be voting no on the marriage amendment. Denying a civil right to gays and lesbians is a social injustice.

Our Minnesota Constitution, as well as the U.S. Constitution, have historically protected rights, not denied them. Likewise, the issue of government ID to vote is an attempt to decrease the vote of a segment of the population who might vote the “wrong” way. It’s another attempt to deny a right.

Please, vote no on both amendments.
