Over 100 Religious Leaders in Minnesota Unite to Defeat Anti-Gay Legislation On November Ballot

120 religious leaders of diverse faiths announced the formation of the Clergy United for All Families, a new group which would work to defeat a proposed marriage amendment on the November ballot in Minnesota. The anti-gay amendment, which is supported by the religious right and the Roman Catholic Church, would define marriage in the Minnesota state constitution as between one man and one woman and kill any possibility of marriage equality in the state. A member of the new coalition, pastor Kelly Chatman from the Redeemer Lutheran Church stated that “the world is created by God and it is a place where everybody deserves to feel safe and belong and marriage is one of the ways we live that out in our world, and everyone should have that right.”
