Video: Would Passing a Marriage Amendment End the Conversation About Marriage?


Kalley Yanta for Minnesota Marriage Minute answers the question "Would passage of the Marriage Protection Amendment end the ongoing conversation that our state is engaged in concerning the appropriate definition of marriage in Minnesota?"

She responds:

"Actually, the opposite is true. There's no doubt that the issue about whether we should redefine marriage is one of the most hotly debated across the nation. [...] Here in Minnesota, enacting the Marriage Protection Amendment would not end the conversation about marriage, it is actually the only way to guarantee that voters will always be a part of the conversation. Without the amendment, special interest advocates could take their cause to activist politicians and judges who would then decide the definition of marriage for us, without letting us have a say. Voters will be excluded from the decision. That's what happened across the border in Iowa. "
