Another US state has legalized same-sex marriage, joining 11 other American states that have done so in a growing political bid pushed by liberal groups in the nation following President Barack Obama’s public support for “the cause” as his reelection campaign strategy in 2012.
Minnesota became the 12th American state to legalize the divisive bid after Governor Mark Dayton signed the gay-marriage bill on Tuesday after the state’s Democratic Party-controlled Senate passed the legislation by a 37-30 vote.
The controversial political campaign by powerful gay and other liberal interest groups to legalize same-sex marriage across the United States contradicts all divine religions across the globe, including the US, offending many of their followers, who commonly reject homosexuality and gay unions as contrary to innate human instincts and ruled strictly forbidden in divine scriptures.
Before the Senate vote, opponents of gay marriage waged a protest rally at the state’s Capitol. A paper tombstone on the Capitol lawn read, “RIP MARRIAGE, 2013.”
Minnesota is the third US state in three weeks to legalized same-sex marriage. Delaware became the 11th state to approve the controversial bid last week, followed by Rhode Island a week earlier.
The move was widely viewed by US observers as part of a rapid shift on the campaign to establish same-sex marriage as the norm in liberal parts of the nation, which are largely governed by lawmakers from the Democratic Party, known to be under major influence of Zionist Jewish and homosexual figures.
Supporting same-sex marriage has become “almost a requirement for the Democratic Party’s elected officials, at least on the national level,” according to local media analysts, who add that the move toward legalization in Democratic-leaning states seems likely to continue.
So far, however, there has been little sign of a shift in more conservative, Republican-leaning states, suggesting a major divide across the US on the issue, which may persist for many years.
