Packed capitol full of emotion on both sides...
I kept thinking, "No, there's no gay agenda." Did you ever hear that? There are even funny photos online about the supposed 'gay agenda' thingie - making fun of right-wing-nuts who suggest such an evil conspiracy theory in the first place. "No - there's no gay agenda... my ass."
The vote comes just six months after Minnesota voters defeated a proposal to constitutionally ban same-sex marriage. The sharp divisions remaining within the state were evident in a Star Tribune Minnesota Poll two months ago that showed a majority of Minnesotans still opposed to lifting the legal ban on gay marriage. - StaTribune
An agenda emotionally charged and well funded.
Minnesota for Marriage has one registered lobbyist. According to John Helmberger, Chairman of the Minnesota for Marriage, the other side has 12 lobbyists. Paul Singer's organization pumped a quarter million dollars to lobby Republicans to redefine marriage in Minnesota. - When you say 'gay marriage is inevitable'...Gay people have a lot of money and the agenda is very well funded.
