The snakes of bigotry emerge
How relationships born out of love can stir such hatred is beyond understanding.
pawned from President George W. Bush’s declaration to ban gay marriage, the snakes of bigotry have emerged at the State Capitol. Minnesota politicians should be beyond the reach of the tendrils of hatred, but Rep. Mary Liz Holberg, R-Lakeville, proved us sadly wrong by proposing a bill that would amend the Minnesota constitution and ban same-sex marriages. Because Holberg’s bill calls for an amendment to the state constitution, if it passes, a referendum would be on the November ballot. Such a referendum would simply validate the tyranny of the majority.
