MN Family Council: 'Our world changed at 5:00pm on Tuesday May 14th'

That’s when those of us who believe that marriage can only be the union of one man and one woman, as God designed it, were legally declared 'bigots' punishable by law if we dare to live out our faith in the public square.

in an email today

I call Helmberger a bigot, not because he opposed marriage equality. I call Helmberger a bigot because he has claimed that he and his ilk are oppressed if gay people are given any measure of equality. I call him a bigot because he claimed that accepting gay scouts means that the BSA is "promoting homosexuality." I call Mr. Helmberger a bigot and a liar for many, many reasons.

As for others who think that marriage equality is a bad idea; You are entitled to your opinion. Minnesota is an equal marriage state. A "bigot" is one can be characterized by prejudice and intolerance. The First Amendment ensures that even Mr. Helmberger can express his hate speech at will. The notion that differing views are "punishable by law if we dare to live out our faith in the public square" is simply dishonest.
