Minnesota Senator Al Franken's statement opposing antigay constitutional amendment

The Washington Blade is reporting that Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) has announced his opposition to a constitutional amendment prohibiting same-sex marriage that will appear on the Minnesota state ballot in the 2012 election.
“Every Minnesotan deserves dignity and equal treatment under the law, and our state’s same-sex couples should have the same right to marry as anyone else — period,” Franken said. “This amendment would do nothing more than write discrimination into our state’s constitution and add to the barriers same-sex couples already face to the full recognition of their families. I’m hopeful that common sense and compassion will prevail and that this amendment will be defeated.”
