Minnesota Evangelical Lutherans Oppose Gay Marriage Ban!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal MattersPolitik

Yay! What a huge step for Minnesota!

700 Evangelical Lutheran synod leaders gathered in Minneapolis and nearly unanimously passed a resolution to oppose Minnesota's gay marriage amendment.

Currently, Minnesota has statutes that ban gay marriage and a constitutional amendment has been proposed to cement the ban.

The resolution is monumental because 1 out of every 4 Minnesotans are Evangelical Lutherans. That's 25% of the entire state population!

While the leaders stated that this was not a political move, they did say that they wanted to let their followers know where they stood as a whole.

The leaders agreed to support all civil rights for every man and woman!

What an inspiration!

Check out the video above to learn more about the group's decision.

Let's hope this picks up steam all across the state! Go Minnesota!

    Yawn.

    Paraphrasing Mr. Lyle Lovett from February's Esquire magazine, why can't religious people believe their beliefs without being judgmental of others? This is a good step. If you don't believe in gay marriage, then build your home around a man-woman relationship and don't try to ruin your neighbor's happiness just because he/she builds a same-sex home.

    I'd like to know where you got your numbers that 25% of the population of Minnesota are evangelical Lutherans. There's a lot of Lutherans in MN, but not a lot of EVANGELICAL Lutherans and nowhere near 25% of the population.
