Minnesota Marriage Ban LOSES!!!

In a huge "FUCK YOU" to NOM, the Catholic Church, the Knights of Columbus, and one Ms. Kalley Yanta, last night Minnesota voters said "NO" to bigotry. The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports:
"You dug down and fought for love, with love," Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak told hundreds of amendment opponents gathered at the RiverCentre in St. Paul late Tuesday night. "You understood compassion. This wound up being one of the most inspirational things that's ever happened in Minnesota. Minnesota is going to be the state that's going to show the country exactly what Minnesota values are all about." An early and vocal opponent of the amendment, DFL Gov. Mark Dayton said "Minnesota is better than this" and criticized the ballot initiative as the "wrong way to lead, the wrong way to govern."
This one may be the sweetest of all and it's not even technically a "win."  I'll have a roundup of shocked hate groups later today, bet on it.
