Minnesota for Marriage advertisement creates controversy

| No Comments

A television advertisement by the Minnesota for Marriage group released Thursday says that if the marriage amendment passes schools can teach about same-sex relationships, the Pioneer Press reported in a story by the Associated Press.

The Star Tribune reported that the opposing group, Minnesotans United for All Families, called the ad inaccurate and misleading.

According to the Star Tribune, the ad opens with a statement that says, "If gay marriage happens here, schools could teach that boys could marry boys."

The Pioneer Press reported that gay marriage is already outlawed in Minnesota and that this won't change whether the amendment passes. According to the Star Tribune, supporters stress the importance of the amendment's passage to prevent future legislators from changing the law. Opponents of the amendment argue that its passage will cement discrimination in Minnesota legislature.
