Skip to comments.Minnesota House passes gay marriage; bill heads to Senate Monday
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.

My (R) Rep voted for it. OMG.
Dems doing what they do best — destroying marriage and civilization. In other news, unwed births hit 48 percent in America.
Julie Rosen aka Ziggy’s girl?
local tv news will be giddy with joy tonight.
maybe sven will cry during the weather.
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.
she’ll probably have lower taxes there,too.
now come the parades. sigh...
Minnesota, the only state to vote against Reagan during a landslide victory.
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.
with the dems running everything here now this session, we got:
huge tax increases
$3+ raise of min.wage
more trains/trolley funding
Viking/Mayo Clinic bailouts
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.
you are absolutely right. Sadly it isn’t going to get better here....but VICTORY WILL BE OURS IN THE END! PRAISE GOD!
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.
they spend their money.
they get their DFL’rs elected and shop at Target and General Mills...
outside money from Hollyweird helps,too.
Minnesota is prettier than Texas, but I’ll dammed if I could live there.
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.
