The recent hearings in the Minnesota Legislature about the definition of marriage
amendment have placed lawyer against lawyer, pastors against priests against
ministers, parents against parents, and veteran against veteran. Those are just
a few that have testified during these committee hearings.
I found it very interesting that the rights of African
Americans and women were used as compost in this amendment debate. I also found
it interesting that words like humanity, civil rights, christian, patriot,
foundation, and pro create further boosted the stink content.
As a feminist and someone taught by the best
how to throw an awl in the chain drive , it is necessary to point out a few
things to our current elected representation. To Representatives Kiffmeyer,
Lohmer, Franson, Mack, Scott, Myhra, Fabian, Doepke, Peppin, D. Anderson,
McElfatrick, Erickson, and Senators Koch, Robling, Fischbach, Benson, Wolf, I
would like to remind you of a wonderful statement about constitutional rights
made this year by Supreme Court Judge Scalia. His Justice made the point that the
only rights women have constitutionally is the right to vote. That is correct ladies,
vote, other than that you have no constitutional protection or privilege what so ever. Law’s and bills
that make it okay for you to run for election, to serve next to your male colleagues
and to make our schools, cities, counties, state, or country a better place. But
constitutionally, you have no right sitting in that seat, yet you are
allowing a constitutional amendment to take away the rights of others.
Ladies, you have the right to vote, that’s it, use it
wisely. Because next election the feminists of this state will use their one
and only constitutional right to make sure you cannot exercise your right
