Isn't that what Rob Blagojevich did?

"Voters will have their say, and it will not be pretty for Republicans who voted for gay marriage," said Frank Schubert, national political director for the National Organization for Marriage. He said the group "took out" legislators in other states who supported same-sex marriage and "we will do the same in Minnesota."................Frank Schubert is quite the defender of the "sanctity of marriage." He is currently on his second marriage after leaving his first wife and children. But hey, who has time for a family when you have to run everybody else's life. The hypocrisy is simply astounding with these people.

Let me see if I have this right - approximately half of Minnesotans (47% to be exact) voted for the amendment to make marriage only between a man and woman. Yet only a couple of years later the legislators in Minnesota still thought it appropriate to legalize same sex marriage and basically spit on half of the electorate. Am I the only one who see this as a severe abuse when they force upon half of their constituents a law as controversial and divisive as this. It shows that they could care less about the nearly 50% of people in their state they have caused extreme distress by their actions. They simply don't care.

"Schubert vowed that Minnesota’s same-sex marriage law will be repealed once Republicans control the Capitol again."..........Yeah, right. It worked out so well for the Republicans the last time they ignored common-sense and tried to make an end run around social justice and equality. The outcome was so disastrous for the Republicans that they should consider contacting FEMA.

@Aaronaa - No one is forcing your to marry a gay. This law allows to gay people to marry? In any case, it was the Republicans who stirred the pot to reject gay marriage. A majority of MN residents rejected that. My heterosexual marriage is not one bit affected by allowing gay marriages. Live and let live. Open your heart and love your neighbors. God loves all people equally.

Us gay marriage supporters have time on their side. We're seeing more young people who overwhelmingly support gay marriage attain voting age. There is an intraparty fistfight among religious conservatives and libertarians in the republican party that the libertarians look to win out on. The senate is not up for re-election in 4 years, by that time I think the gay marriage debate will be all but over, and I thing several more promenent repubicans will have signed on to Gay-marriage by then. This law isn't going anywhere. Frank Schubert is wasting his time and money with his fear mongering.

Frank Schubert's last electoral experience was losing four out of four statewide marriage equality votes on the same day. Perhaps his time has come and gone, like Anita Bryant and her orange juice.

Next year at this time, people will see same gendered marriages have NO AFFECT on their marriages. Frank Schubert, Warren Limmer, Autumn Leva, Archbishop Nienstedt and Peggy Scott will have nothing to complain about!

My mind is still blown on how quickly Minnesota went from almost banning marriage equality in the state constitution to legalizing it in two months. I hope those who insist on using the constitution to take away the right to marry for gay people realize that they will motivate strong opposition in state like Minnesota.
