The streets outside Minneapolis City Hall were filled with newly-wedded gay and lesbian couples reveling in their new marital status Thursday morning while inside dozens more waited their turn in lines that lasted until dawn.
Down the street at the Hotel Minneapolis, Cathy ten Broeke and Margaret Miles, the first couple legally wed in Minnesota, partied into the night, wearing the same slinky dresses they wore 12 years earlier at their commitment ceremony.

The greater travesty is that these pervs will get to adopt children who will have two dads or two moms. Its not God’s design and it won’t endure the test of time no matter what leftist liars say or promote. Expect weeping and gnashing of teeth just up ahead and around the twisted curves.
I had to turn the news off last night. ALL local media is this week is ALL gay ALL the time.
It’s not news.
They can call it “marriage,” but it’s not.
The wicked freely strut about
when what is vile
is honored among men.
Examples of what you won't be allowed to do:
straight boys or girls activity group (like Boy Scouts)
a normal marriage-oriented dating service (like e-Harmony)
religious wedding venue (like Methodist Ocean Grove)
an adoption program (like Catholic Social Services)
"straight" ethical/spiritual pastoral care (like by an Armed Forces chaplain)
a counseling program supporting kids natural sex/gender identity (like NARTH)
The above examples show activities already shut down or forced to incorporate the LGBT sex/gender perspective by lawsuits or anti-discrimination laws.
Anything at all related to gender-normal child development, relationships, courtship, weddings, family-building, fertility, adoption ...if you dont rewrite your program content to affirm the LGBT gender perspective, mark my words, they will take you to court, and shut you down.
Even many "conservatives" only find the LGBT thing mildly nonsensical. Or merely transiently obnoxious. They do NOT know the totalizing nature of the coercion we are facing.
nothing will make me think it is ok to act on homo impulses, it is wrong and perverted
IF this is ever reversed, it will be the work of the adult children of these unions, forming a movement and going public with their childhood stories of horror.
Your post was so spot on.
A year and a half ago, I was ambivalent about gay marriage. Not because I was pro-gay but because I felt there were other more pressing issues.
A friend urged me to attend an event put on by a group known as Minnesota For Marriage. During that event, they touched on many of the same points you made. I was immediately converted during that event. Last fall, I talked to a number of people and tried to make the same points.
I wish more people had taken the time to understand exactly what the unitended consequences were of rejecting last fall’s Marriage Amendment in in the Legislature’s approval of gay marriage earlier this year.

That’s a lot of poo-poo on pee-pees this morning. Blech.
I am with you on this. There is no mortal force on earth that can make me recognize a celebration of perversion as a marriage. I am prepared to stand by anyone who resists this unholy agenda on whatever battlefield the war is fought. If you are in Minnesota, I suggest we start to organize, because the days of judgment are at hand.
It takes three reporters for the RedStar to finish its wall to wall coverage of perversion. Their spiking the football on this issue won’t be forgotten. Ever.
...and now the “fun” begins when they start quarreling and divorcing, because these perverts are not “naturally” monogamous.
I know a lawyer who will no longer practice family law because if s/he wishes to limit that practice to non-gay clients, discipline or a discrimination suit will follow.
Therefore, the area is avoided entirely.
After all, we must seek the lowest common denominator to divide society.
Maybe it would be a good start to ping your state list and see if there’s enough mass to start a formal resistance.
There was a statewide referendum about declaring a marriage to be between one man and one woman and it lost. This law was then passed in its wake.
Sodomy is celebrated.
God will not be mocked.
It all started with conservatives saying, “I don’t care what two people do behind closed doors in their own home.”
Sodomy laws said the exact contrary, and were a good societal censure against such behavior. When they were swept away by another horrible USSC decision, it was all a cakewalk for the sodomites from there on.
And who is “naturally” monogamous?
“I wish more people had taken the time to understand exactly what the unitended consequences were of rejecting last falls Marriage Amendment in in the Legislatures approval of gay marriage earlier this year.”
I think more than you would guess fully understood the ramifications. They also understood that the representation we have among lawmakers is not what was intended. We live under rule by tyrants that do not represent the people. Too many know this as well, but are numb and realize there is nothing they can do, short of what they don’t want to do, but know they should.
Lots of weddings, yes. No real marriages, though.
Same here. It was a good day not to read local papers or watch local news. I grabbed a national newspaper instead and watched only the FOX national news broadcast at 5:00.
