Minnesota, USA: Voters Reject Marriage Equality Ban

Minnesota, USA: Voters Reject Marriage Equality BanSupporters of marriage equality made it a clean sweep on Tuesday night when Minnesota voters narrowly rejected a state constitutional ban on same-sex marriage. Maine, Maryland and Washington state voters all approved same-sex marriage at the ballot box.

The measure needed 50% of all voters to be approved, according to state law.

The Roman Catholic Church, led by the homophobic Archbishop John Nienstedt from the Twin Cities, donated millions of dollars and volunteered to fight the Proposition 32 measure sponsored by Minnesota for Marriage, an anti-gay group.
