After marriage equality passed in Minnesota, The Journal Times asked some Wisconsin legislators what they thought of passing such a bill there. The JT reports:
Logistics aside, local legislators remain divided on the issue at the core — should gay marriage be legalized? Here’s what our elected officials said….
Sen. John Lehman, D-Racine
Response: Yes, if churches can make their own decisions
Why? “I support the permanent union of loving couples regardless of gender,” Lehman said. But he added that his Lutheran faith strongly informs his opinion. “The sacredness of that process (marriage and children) is instilled in me and lots of people of faith,” he said. Although his own church opposes the practice, Lehman said that as a Senator “you’re representing everybody.” Additionally, Lehman said, he personally knows same-sex couples in loving relationships, which further informs his position.
