What Is the Limit to Liberty?

An email from Minnesota for Marriage asked me to support defining marriage as between one man and one woman. They also gave me the option of receiving no more emails. This is how I responded:

I do want to continue receiving emails from you, but not because of your mission. Rather, I want to keep abreast of how you are doing on it, as I will be working to allow all people in Minnesota to choose th
eir partners by their own free will.

Remember? That is what the Constitution protects--our liberty. Government does not have the power or the right to limit our choices, but must protect them, as long as those choices hurt no one.

God gave us free will. The state cannot limit that divine gift.

My wife and I are are straight, and would not choose otherwise. We do not want others to choose for us, so we will not choose for them.
