Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie abandoned the original title of the proposed gay marriage amendment that voters will see on the November ballot and replaced it with one of his own, his office announced Thursday.

The Democrat's office said the title, which will be directly above the ballot question, will read: "Limiting the Status of Marriage to Opposite Sex Couples." Republicans who backed the amendment effort wanted wording that focused on the traditional definition of marriage, "Recognition of Marriage Solely Between One Man and One Woman."

This is Orwellian newsspeak in its most blatant form, typical of the Marxist Democrat Party. "Limiting" implies rolling back a previously extant definition, which has definitely not happened here.

The Minn GOP should just add the re-afirmation of Sodemy rights to any Gay Marriage bill.

Let peoples mind start working on what a gay relationship actually entails. They dont just cuddle.

Kind of like changing a “mandate” to a “tax” on the fly.

I think this is the guy who enabled Franken to steal the election and become the 60th vote for Obamacare.

Scumbags like this know they need ratspeak to trick voters because they will not vote for Gay “marriage” otherwise.
