The Minnesota Family Council has rolled out an amendment to ban gay marriage and has put together a coalition of religious leaders.
Minnesota has rejected the same amendment in 2004, 2005, and 2006, but this time these leaders are taking a new approach and are saying Minnesotans need to support their amendment because it will stop the world from ending.
“We see this as a pivotal issue to life, not just for our nation but the life we have known for 3,000 years,” Pastor Tom Parrish said.

Rabbi Moshe Feller said at Tuesday morning’s press conference … “Homosexual unions are forbidden and cannot be licensed with the term marriage.” Republican House member Dan Severson added: “The legislature needs to listen to these voices that have come out today and stop assaulting marriage.”
Laws have been introduced in the Minnesota House and Senate to allow same sex couples to marry by making marriage gender-neutral.
"If everyone is a gay, this world will cease to exist in 10 years," Muslim leader Ikram Ulhuk said.
