Your View: Minnesota stood up to reject discrimination

By Barbara Keating, Mankato

— Thank you, Minnesota voters. Thank you for rejecting the hurtful, discriminatory anti-marriage amendment. Thank you for affirming the importance of equality under the law for all.

We turned a page of history — as did Maine, Maryland and Washington who voted to legalize same-sex marriage.

Minnesota is now just a page behind.
