Strip their tax exemption status! You take a position on a political issue publicly? You lose your non-profit status. Oh how quickly they'd stop lobbying...

This is NOT a vote on whether same-sex marriage should be allowed or not. It's already illegal. It is a vote on whether it should be embedded into our state constitution.

If Nienstedt wants to protect the idea of "traditional marriage" within the Catholic church THAT is his prerogative. But to push for a constitutional amendment to force every one in the state to live under his standards is appalling. Especially when one considers the amount money he has spent on this which could of done so much for so many needy people.

Since we all follow the Bible 100% when determining social contracts in our daily lives, it only stands to reason that's what we should use to define adult partnerships. I hope those religious leaders gave half their robes to the needy as they rode back to their palaces of worship with gilded crosses on the altars.
