Minnesota for Marriage Releases 3rd VOTE YES TV Ad
“Live and let live” is not the way of life when same-sex “marriage” is imposed on societies.
Minneapolis, MN – Today, Minnesota for Marriage released its third TV ad, designed to help Minnesotans understand that when marriage—the building block for all societies and the most child-centered institution we have—is redefined, there are profound consequences to society. The ad highlights real-life stories of individuals, small businesses, religious organizations who have been impacted by the imposition of same-sex marriage in their states or countries.
“This ad is extremely important because Minnesotans need to understand that when marriage is redefined, the result is not simply one of ‘live and let live.’ Instead, marriage is redefined for everyone. Traditional marriage is gone and it is replaced by genderless marriage. There is no room under the law for those who cannot agree with this new genderless definition of marriage for religious, cultural, or other reasons,” said John Helmberger, Chairman of Minnesota for Marriage.
The record in the six states, Washington, D.C., and Canada that have legalized same-sex “marriage” is already replete with cases demonstrating that individuals, small businesses and organizations face consequences when marriage is redefined demonstrating that citizens, like most Minnesotans who believe marriage is the unique union of one man and one woman, are certainly not living in a “live, let live” society.
“A small business in Vermont was sued successfully because its owners did not wish to offer their privately-owned inn to a same-sex couple for their ‘marriage’ ceremony. A prominent Canadian sportscaster was fired for simply tweeting out his support for traditional marriage. Catholic Charities in D.C. was forced to close and end its good work in our nation’s capital, rather than violating their deeply held beliefs. And in Massachusetts, the courts ruled that parents have no right to take their kids out of class or to even be told when their children are being taught about same-sex ‘marriage’ in school,” continued Helmberger.
“Without the Minnesota Marriage Protection Amendment, we run the risk of allowing judges and politicians to turn our state into the next Vermont or Massachusetts. Only by passing the Amendment do we ensure that voters always have control over the definition of marriage. That’s why it’s so important to VOTE YES on the Marriage Protection Amendment on November 6th,” he concluded.
