    I am a Minnesota resident.  I strongly opposed both of the amendments proposed by the Republicans.  Neither of those reactionary ideas - voter ID or some asinine statement  regarding one man/one woman - had any place in our state Constitution.  That being said I'm not actually so much "for" gay marriage  as opposed to those who are against it.

      but let's say we never had the amendment, then what would people use as an excuse for being against same-sex marriage?  Over-all point is, the DFL is finally in total control of our state government so a discussion on legalizing same-sex marriage should be expected at this point of the gay rights battle.  And every single state that has had the Democratic trifecta of governance in the last decade has discussed how far they can go in pushing marriage equality, as well.
