Minnesota state Rep. Tim Faust attended a demonstration against same-sex marriage in April, but told the crowd he wasn’t sure why he was there. Something has changed though, for the conservative Democrat and Lutheran minister who represents (DFL) District: 11B.
“Not too long ago, I probably would have voted ‘no’ on this bill, but in the past there have been a couple of things that changed my mind on this. The first one is, is in the last ten years I’ve had conversations with hundreds — and I guess now it’s in the thousands — of people about this issue, and in 99.9 percent of the time the people that are opposed to gay marriage at some point in their discussion they always say, ‘My Bible says.’”
“And so if this is the reason or the rationale for being opposed to this or why this law is currently in place, the question that keeps going through my mind over and over again, is do we as a society have the right to impose our religious beliefs on somebody else?”
Thank God for logic!
Minnesota representatives voted 75-59 to make same-sex marriage legal in that state on 5/9/2013!
