Oh yeah, we are a conflicted city...I doubt because it seems that our state is rooted in Catholic and Lutheran although it doesn't necessary mean everyone is against same-sex marriage.

Voting down a constitutional ban doesn't legalize gay marriage. It just maintains the status quo.

What he said... It will still be illegal in MN no matter how the results of the vote turn out.

I don't live in MN (but one day hope to) so I didn't vote in the poll but personally I would love to see same sex marriage become legal someday. Like someone mentioned upthread, voting the ban down won't make same sex marriage legal but voting a ban down would be a step in the right direction for legalizing it.

moving 123456 everytime I see that graphic I giggle, I think it's perfect.

Marriages will collapse and society will crumble.

Just like has happened in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Iowa, Vermont, the District of Columbia, New Hampshire and New York.

Oh... wait...

So I live in Fort Frances, Ontario; right across the toll bridge from International Falls, MN. I'm one of maybe three gay people here, and I feel that things have gotten a little better over the last few years. I want to offer my support in legalizing GLBT marriage in Minnesota or the whole US, but the larger problem I am seeing with our gay communities in general is the lack of access to finding each other these days...before, it meant travelling to a new, larger city and actually getting out there and becoming comfortable with interacting with GLBT folks. Today it's become very easy to hide in online chat rooms and never even speak to another gay person in real life. It's really hard to think about marriage when so many people are struggling to find a date or a second date - in absence of developing these social skills, there is an awkward discomfort that gay people have with each other - we don't know what to do or how to act...finally we are all together but it seems like the feeling is that of disappointment, as the gays they expected to meet (or more than likely what they fantasized based on the straight college athlete models in gay magazines) look nothing like the gays that are real-life, everyday people of all ages and walk of life. Just meeting someone takes an awfully long time, and legal or not, marriage is something that only a very privileged few will ever experience first hand. Unless the quality or ability to find relationships is made easier, or even encouraged more, being able to get married will be nice, but if we can't find anyone to date, it won't mean much.
