Senate Majority Leader (Minnesota) Amy Koch engaged in an "inappropriate relationship" with a Senate Staffer. She recently issued a public apology for her extramarital affair. The other guy is rumored to be Michael Brodkorb. Koch and Brodkorb campaigned heavily this year to add an amendment to the constitution to define marriage as between a man and woman only – thereby banning gay marriage. Indeed, same-sex couples cannot possibly respect commitment, love, and family. Clearly, only male-female marriages pass the test of time. Are you kidding me? Do these people really still think like this, and are so confident in their thoughts, that they preach it? Well to that, the gay community of Minnesota responded to the recent scandal with the following:
"On behalf of all gays and lesbians living in Minnesota, I would like to wholeheartedly apologize for our community's successful efforts to threaten your traditional marriage," reads the letter from John Medeiros. "We apologize that our selfish requests to marry those we love has cheapened and degraded traditional marriage so much that we caused you to stray from your own holy union for something more cheap and tawdry."
Well said. Judgeth not, lest ye be judged, my friends.
