Marriage amendment draws parents, church-goers from opposite sides of issue



If the amendment is rejected in Minnesota, it will be a first. In 31 states where similar measures went for a statewide vote, voters favored restricting gay marriage every time.

Cramblit has a warning and a prediction, too, if the amendment passes.

With a constitutional prohibition against gay marriage, Minnesota will get a rerun of the statewide argument of this summer and fall, she said. It’s only a question of when because younger generations simply don’t support prohibiting gay marriage.

“Our kids will have to fix it,” she said. “And how many millions of dollars have we already spent on this issue in Minnesota? And how many millions more will they have to spend? And how could that money be better used? That’s one of the reasons why I want to prevent it from getting put in the constitution now.”
