Minnesota, USA: Anti Marriage Equality Rally Held in Duluth

Written by scott on April 14th, 2013

MinnesotaGay marriage opponents held a rally in freezing temperatures against marriage equality in Duluth yesterday. The Duluth News Tribune reports:

Married 56 years himself, Jerome Elness of Duluth is so strongly opposed to same-sex marriage that he stood outside in damp, 30-degree weather on Saturday morning to say so. “I believe in the Judeo-Christian moral standards,” explained Elness, 81. “What they’re doing is challenging the Judeo-Christian heritage and the laws of Moses, and they’re putting themselves up above Moses.” Elness, who lives near the University of Minnesota Duluth, was among about 70 people who attended a 45-minute rally staged by Minnesota for Marriage in the parking lot of Mount of Olives Baptist Church on Swan Lake Road. The organization, which is determined to defeat same-sex marriage bills being considered by the Minnesota Legislature, was in the early stages of a road trip that began in Hinckley on Friday and will conclude — weather permitting — in Detroit Lakes and Morris today.

Literally tens of people turned out for the rally.
