April 9, 2012 – Saint Paul, MN – Minnesotans United for All Families is thrilled to see President Obama publicly opposing the proposed constitutional amendment to limit the freedom to marry.

President Obama has spoken out time and again about his belief that gays and lesbians deserve the same legal rights as all Americans. This amendment would exclude gays and lesbians from the right to marry. It would use the constitution to tell gays and lesbians it’s illegal to marry the person you love. The amendment does not represent the values Minnesotans hold dear – that marriage is about love and commitment, and that freedom means freedom for everyone.

We’re happy that President Obama and Minnesotans from all walks of life see this amendment for what it is – a government exclusion to a group of people simply because of who they are.

Minnesotans United is committed to continuing the conversation with people from all across the state about why it is so important to vote no on limiting the freedom to marry.
