Skip to comments.Minnesota CEO rallying fellow execs to publicly oppose marriage amendment
Posted on 06/18/2012 5:15:47 AM PDT by TurboZamboni
When he talks privately to other corporate executives, John Taft says he's noticed two things.
First, he finds that almost none of Minnesota's business leaders support the marriage amendment. That amendment would add to the state constitution, "only a union between one man and one woman will be recognized as a marriage in Minnesota."
But second, Taft finds that almost no CEOs are eager to take a public stand on a controversial issue such as same-sex marriage, wary of seeing their companies caught up in a culture war.

Taking a stand for what is just plain obviously right can be as costly as the freedom we pay for so dearly. We all need to be ready to suffer loss in this life to gain the next...
God bless Mr. Taft and his mission.
WELCOME TO FREE REPUBLIC’S MINNESOTA PING LIST!
151 MEMBERS AND GROWING...!
FREEPMAIL ME IF YOU WANT ON OR OFF THIS LIST!
Looks like Minnesotans are reaching their limit of patience with all the socialism being pushed onto them!
Minnesota Nice only works for so long....
I suspect that you’re reading this incorrectly. Mr Taft wants to defeat an amendment that would reinforce NORMAL marriage. (...he’s one of the bad guys...)
So you oppose MN defining marriage as between one man and one woman?
No surprise here.
Taft is the great-grandson of that uber-liberal Republican President of 100 years ago. Namely, William Howard Taft. Acorns do not fall far from the tree.
Taft also has lesbian daughters.
It looks like Taft wants to impose his problems on others.
Go Minnesota and approve the Marriage Amendment between a man and a woman. 32 states have already added the Marriage Amendment to their state’s constitution.
“God bless Mr. Taft and his mission.”
Really? Taft supports queer weddings. Is that what you want?
“”God bless Mr. Taft and his mission.””
Are you sure?
Minnesotan freepers need to let these CEO’s hear about this. Let them know that if they refuse to support traditional families they will suffer at the cash register.
According to the US Census Bureau, there are only 111,033 same-sex households in America with children under age 18 who are living in the household. By contrast, there are over 35 million households with children under age 18.
Boy, are you right that I read this incorrectly. I must be having a whole “blonde morning”.
ooops—Monday morning scan wrong read apparently
Did he ask them like this: “Thaaaaaay, you don’t like that icky marriage thing do you? Hey, did you catch Glee this week?”
Sorry-—I didn’t read it correctly. I thought he was one of the few corporate people to take a stand FOR marriage. I haven’t heard of many of those.

Because he has a messed up situation he wants the "peasants" to have the same. He is engaged in self-justification at the expense of a coherent society with a coherent Judeo-Christian moral code that civilized people have done well by for 5000+ years. He is smarter than that long lived tradition and moral religious codes. He is a rich anarchist and we have a few million of them
Wow! All that belly-crawling for a group which represents less than 3% of our population. Those CEO’s are part of what’s wrong with America—no moral compass.
He has a moral compass, its just pointed in the wrong direction.
