“Children parented by same-sex couples do just fine” | Minneapolis Star Tribune

    Daniel Christensen, Kathleen Albrecht, Bruce Minor And Bill Clapp at the Minneapolis Star Tribune: Four major mental-health professional associations — the Minnesota Psychological Association; the Minnesota chapter of the National Association of Social Workers; the Minnesota Association of Marriage and Family Therapists, and the Minnesota Psychiatric Society — oppose amending our state Constitution to exclude same-sex couples from legal marriage . . . Far from “redefining marriage,” the research shows that same-sex couples who seek to wed one another are hoping to participate fully in the same traditional definitions of marriage their other family members embrace, and for the same reasons.

The Path of Lease Resistance | FRC Washington Update

    Family Research Council Washington Update: If I told you the story of a faithful citizen who punished for praying in an upstairs room, you’d probably think I was reading from the Book of Daniel. Try Fox News. That’s where Todd Starnes shares a shocking report of religious hostility–not in an oppressive foreign country, but in quiet Spring Lake Park, Minnesota . . . Have you ever heard of anything so ridiculous? Fortunately for Ruth, our friends at Alliance Defending Freedom have. Attorneys for ADF set to work almost immediately, debunking the myth that residents have to forfeit their religious rights to live in a HUD development. In a letter it fired off to Osbourne Apartments, ADF explains that “[The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development] does not prohibit discussion about religion in the facilities to which it provides funding… simply because the government provides a benefit with public funds does not mean that all ‘mention of religion or prayers’ must be whitewashed from the use of the benefit.”

Court Blasts Negative Same-Sex Ballot Title: State ordered to use wording chosen by legislature

    Bob Unruh at WorldNetDaily: “Minnesotans deserve to have free and fair elections, and they deserve to know precisely what they are voting for,” said Jordan Lorence, senior counsel for the Alliance Defending Freedom, which argued the case on behalf of the Legislature’s title. “Because the Legislature wrote a ballot title for the marriage amendment, no official in the executive branch has any authority to replace or modify that title – especially not with one that incorrectly describes the amendment’s effect,” he said. “Voters have the right to know that the amendment is designed to protect the ‘recognition of marriage solely between one man and one woman,’ as the Legislature accurately specified. The court has done the right thing in restoring that language to the ballot,” Lorence said.
