The book depicted different types of families, including single-parent families, interracial families and two same-sex families. The book concludes: "Who's in a family? The people who love you most!" That people find this "morally repugnant" is sad.

The National Organization for Marriage spread the same lies in Maine in 2009.

There is nothing wrong with teaching kids tolerance. Their parents should be doing it, but unfortunately they are too small minded to do so.

WCCO just did a fact check on the ad. It called it false and misleading in part because The curriculum in MA was in place BEFORE they allowed gay marriage. People have the right to have a difference of opinion, but lying and misleading is unacceptable.

The reason these ads are appearing so late in the campaign is that their assertions do not stand up to scrutiny. Google the ad, and read the truths behind these ridiculous arguments, which were used late in the game to win in Maine and Caliornia. Since simple logic does not support this amendment, I guess supporters must now turn to lies.

These out-of-state scare tactics should not be allowed to take root in Minnesota. Talk to your friends, neighbors, and anyone who will listen and let them know how untrue this commercial is.Let's stand together and vote down this hurtful amendment and the lies told in support of it.

Ya know, America will be stronger and happier when it actually enjoys variety. That doesn't mean that you are going to become gay if you see someone who is in a family with gays as parents or as kids. Get it?

"The ad opens with a narrator saying: "If gay marriage happens here, schools could teach that boys could marry boys."...So girls marrying girls is ok now? Weird.

I hate it when out-of-state people invade another state and try to tell them what to do.
