Raising Funds To Hate

A group that supports amending Minnesota’s Constitution to prohibit gay marriage has filed paperwork needed to begin raising campaign donations.

Minnesota for Marriage filed late last week with the Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board. The group includes the Minnesota Family Council and the Minnesota Catholic Conference and other religious and secular organizations.

The Legislature voted earlier this month to put the definition of marriage in Minnesota’s Constitution to a state-wide vote in November 2012. Voters will be asked if the constitution should define marriage as between a man and a woman only, as it’s already defined in state law.

Opponents of the proposed ban are expected to form their own campaign groups.
