My fellow Minnesotans will have the opportunity on election day this November to vote in favor of an amendment to the Minnesota state constitution which would define marriage as being between one man and one woman. Minnesota is ground-zero for this nationwide battle over nature versus distortions of nature provoked by appetites or errors about true friendship.
In the local press (liberal) there is a telling political cartoon. It is telling because it reveals either that the cartoonist is ignorant of the issues and players involved and is simply waving his arms around, or that he is adopting – maybe consciously – a page from the tactics of Saul Alinsky, namely,
RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.
The cartoon is an attack on the institution (of marriage, of the coalition of groups supporting the amendment). It targets Archbp. Nienstedt as a way to attack support for the amendment.
This cartoon is pernicious for various reasons, not the least of which is that it falsely asserts that the Minnesota Marriage Amendment is Archbishop John Nienstedt’s project. Note that “HIS marriage amendment”. He supports it, but it isn’t “HIS”.
Minnesotans: GO to the polls in November. When you vote the pro-abortion, pro-infanticide, anti-liberty Pres. Obama out of office, also vote in FAVOR of the Marriage Amendment, not … not… not… because this is a politically partisan issue, but because the laws of the land ought to be in conformity with the laws of nature and of nature’s God.
Perhaps some Minnesotans will chime in to explain how people all over the country can help the effort.
Begin by praying for Archbp. Nienstedt, who is taking it on the chin. Taking it pretty well, too! No glass jaw.
