ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47) -- A group of activists gathered at St. Luke's Episcopal Church in Rochester Tuesday to raise their voices against the marriage amendment, which would strengthen an existing gay marriage ban by putting it in Minnesota's constitution.
Panelists included State Representative Tina Liebling, former State Senator Tarryl Clark, City Council Member Sandra Means and Human Rights Commissioner Nora Dooley, as well as Reverend Kayla Bonewell.
The women asked voters to vote "no" on the marriage amendment and talked about why the freedom to marry should be granted to everyone, including gay couples.
"On election day this year in Minnesota, we are being asked who our neighbor is, so I know that in the religious community there is not just one opinion on marriage," said Rev. Kayla Bonewell of Peace United Church of Christ in Rochester. "There are faithful people on both sides of this question and all of us together are each other's neighbors."
The activists encouraged people to be more accepting of those with different views and backgrounds.
