Personal Impacts of Minnesota Marriage Amendment

Minnesota’s proposed constitutional amendment to redefine marriage hits home very personally with so many people. To me, the stories are almost always heart-rending. A recent one involves Michele Bachmann and Helen LaFave. If you can read it and don't feel deeply touched, you don’t understand…

I was disquieted this morning by a remarkable column in the New York Times about Congresswoman Michele Bachmann and her stepsister, Helen LaFave. The two girls were very close when they were young. Ms. LaFave has lived with a woman for over 25 years and they have always dreamed of marrying some day here in Minnesota.

Oh, I shouldn’t tell the story poorly, when Frank Bruni has told it so well [You can find it here!] I urge you to read it.

I have no wise-cracks about Congresswoman Bachmann this morning. – only sadness!
