In just over a month, Minnesotans will be asked to amend our state’s Constitution to define marriage as one man and one woman. Minnesota has become afraid that prohibiting same sex marriages will be found to be unconstitutional by what proponents of the amendment declare to be liberal activist judges. The bulk of the message to sway support to amend our Constitution lies within the confines of protecting marriage. But I ask, protect it from what? Love?
First, we want to protect marriage, this vote should make divorce unconstitutional. No one is arguing that we should protect marriage from divorce. Perhaps we should constitutionally provide harsh penalties against adultery? I believe adultery and divorce are the true enemies of marriage, not love.
