Starting as early as 12:01 am, same-sex marriage became legal in Minnesota and Rhoide Island. Just after midnight Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak and his staff began officiating over 42 weddings, and Governor Mark Dayton declared today as “Freedom to Marry Day.” Senators of Minnesota even joined in the celebration, releasing a video sharing their congratulations!
The bill still has to go to the desk of Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton, who is expected to sign the bill into law! This make’s it the 12th State in the U.S. to pass marriage equality. Keep it going everyone!
Minnesota is on the verge of joining the future with Delaware and becoming the 12th state in the U.S. to pass marriage equality. Thursday the Minnesota House of Representatives passed the marriage equality bill, so next stop is the Senate on Monday! Best part is, it’s expected to pass with bipartisan support.
They’re falling like dominoes!
This is some big news for Minnesota! Republican Senator Branden Petersen is breaking new ground in Minnesota by becoming the first Republican legislator to not only publicly support marriage equality, but he is also preparing to co-sponsor a bill legalizing same-sex marriage in his state!
“At this point, I am concerned about doing the right thing,” said Petersen, an Andover resident who is married and has two young children. “I have a certain amount of peace about that, and I will let the chips fall where they may.”
Chad Griffin, President of the Human Rights Campaign, is calling newly re-elected President Barack Obama our Ally-In-Chief. I really like that and it’s a title of distinction that is well deserved. From the fall of DADT to the public support and affirmation that he personally feels gays should have the right to marry we have seen great strides for equality under this administration and it didn’t stop at the top of the ticket last night…
