Minnesota House passes gay marriage; bill heads to Senate Monday
pioneer press ^ | 5-9-13 | doug and megan

Posted on 05/09/2013 3:15:30 PM PDT by TurboZamboni

After three hours of noticeably civil debate and personal, sometimes emotional speeches, the Minnesota House passed a bill Thursday, May 9, that would make it legal for same-sex couples to marry.

The bill is scheduled for a vote Monday in the Senate, where leaders have said they have the votes to approve it. Gov. Mark Dayton has said he will sign it.

If approved, the law would make Minnesota the 12th state in the nation to allow gay and lesbian couples to marry. It would take effect Aug. 1.

The House vote was 75-59. All but two of the 73 Democrats voted in favor of the bill. They were joined by four Republicans.

Dems doing what they do best — destroying marriage and civilization. In other news, unwed births hit 48 percent in America.

Great, now my lesbian cousin will have to move back to Michigan so she’s still got her source of perpetual outrage.

Everyone of those voting for it just threw another shovel full of dirt out of their hole that they are digging in hell. God is not going to ignore this garbage. America is now paying the price for ignoring God. We have a gay guy in the Pink House in D.C. as punishment. God is withdrawing His protective hand over this nation. America is under judgment and it is going to be nasty when the full hammer drops on Amerika.

Its all about the perpetual outrage with the militant lesbians. About a year back my cousin and her “wife” refused to accept a loan from a bank because the bank had no legal definition for gay marriage. The bank was willing to give them a joint loan but they threw a tantrum and walked away.

One has to wonder why gay marriage is getting the green light in so any Northern states lately. I guess the homo crowd is sucking up to and brown nosing them.

Since this state has gone over to the dark side; the only sane thing Minnesotans can do is leave it. A mass exodus is putting your money where your mouth is.

When an entire major political party goes sodomite, it send the signal that it's minions better get in line or face the gaystapo.

Another state pats itself on the back for its support of the sham of "gay marriage", turning marriage on its head.

Interesting that there is such a rush to legalize gay marriage. Assuming that the gay population is a small percentage, then this gains Democrats little political advantage as far as a direct benefit to their constituents.

I can only assume that this move is part of a long term plan to expand gay behavior among the population and destroy whatever independent thoughts that are instilled in children raised the traditional way.

Not all of us are pandering to the turd burglars.

RNC official compares homosexuality to alcoholism, says it leads to drugs

I wish we could get more conservatives and tea party types involved with the state conventions so we can put more solid conservatives on the RNC.

It enrages both of them.

The national party officially went sodomite, so there is much less risk to otherwise resistant democrats to support the popular novelty in their own districts, even if unpopular there.

This is a farce. The 2012 election was a big fraud, in one of the most fraud-prone states in the nation (a la Al Franken). The marriage amendment referendum likely WON, but the election fraud covered it up. The sodomites wouldn’t allow another defeat after North Carolina; they knew that if the momentum of real marriage wasn’t broken, theirs would never get going. There was no way that they would let this one win; and all means were on the table.

Corruption of the highest order.

Their “perpetual outrage” is about the wounds, the abuse, the bonding problems, or just the struggle with the flesh they won’t deal with in the first place.

Last year my cousin applied for a job she didn’t even really want at a Christian college. She refused to sign their contract that she would uphold the Christian standards of behavior. Naturally she threatened to sue and tried stirring up a crowd for protest.

Funny thing is that I have a friend from childhood who is gay. He really enrages my cousin when he calls her a heterophobic dyke.

agree, these clowns have their fraud, they think because the media encourages this agenda then it must be popular and they must vote for it.

If homosexuals really want their sham then why are they not moving to those states which have it then?

This is about destruction of marriage and the family.
For anyone who thinks this is not a big deal and so what bola bla then I hope thye enjoy a communist agenda

http://www.uhuh.com/nwo/communism/comgoals.htm

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

RIGHT THERE, Now those who have no problem with this then better wake the hell up for once and stop being selfish and think it’s all about them when we have these scum bags doing their agenda

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

Get on to your reps, your media, ban places where they get support and let them know you won’t spend money.

For crying out loud will people wake the hell up and why is it that if we want normal marriage then why do people have to vote but then when they want their sham they just find their lawmakers and pay them off to get their laws passed

I suppose ignoring their agenda and just saying who cares must be easy for some.

1963, we won the cold war overseas but the communists went underground , getting into positions of power and influence like Karl Marx said.

Must be nice to ignore all this and either use the cop out of Govt out of it or so what lets talk taxes, take note Hannity and other in talk radio
