In tomorrow's Star Tribune...

It's up on the web now, but this piece of mine will be in tomorrow's Minneapolis Star Tribune. It addresses an aspect of the marriage amendment that has been too little discussed-- the odd way in which the amendment would use the constitution to limit, rather than expand or protect, individual freedoms.

From October 15th until today, I know of not one who could express it better...

“…Raising these points -- gently -- over Thanksgiving dinner may do more to create change than all the poster board signs in the world.

Our hearts open and beliefs are reconsidered when our own interests are valued, respected, and appealed to through logic or story. That is the kind of dialogue that is good for us, and good for the world.”

Amen... And please continue the story
Great piece, Mark. Well done!
