I was away on vacation (with really spotty wi-fi) when this event took place, so I missed it at that time. I happened upon it tonight and just could not resist sharing.
City Pages reported that after Minnesota Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch resigned, the State’s gay and lesbian community issued a ‘letter of apology’ to her for ruining the institution of marriage and causing her to stray from her husband and engage in an “inappropriate relationship.” Koch was on board with legislation that would define marriage as between one man and one woman.
Here’s an excerpt to whet your appetite:
“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 have cheapened and degraded traditional marriage so much that we caused you to stray from your own holy union for something more cheap and tawdry.”
Read the article (which also contains the entire ‘apology’ letter) here.
UPDATE: I came upon the following video after I posted … like the letter written by John Medeiros (above) it’s a beautiful piece of satire. It’s irreverent, to be sure … but yet again, I could not resist. Enjoy.
