Here's a sneak peek at Catholics for Marriage Equality MN's yard sign. It's the group's latest effort to get the word out that Catholics can in good conscience vote 'no' on the Minnesota 'marriage amendment.' As you know, the 'marriage amendment' refers to the November 6, 2012 ballot initiative that asks Minnesotans to vote on limiting the freedom to marry by amending the state constitution to define marriage as “solely between one man and one woman.” (For more information about this issue from a Catholic perspective, click here, here and here.)
C4ME-MN's yard sign will be officially launched at the group's August 15 Minneapolis event, "I DO! Believe in the Freedom to Marry." (You're getting this sneak peek because I serve as executive coordinator of C4ME-MN and it happens to be my front yard in the picture above!) Of course, the making available of yard signs, buttons & bumper stickers and DVDs will be a bonus aspect of the August 15 event. The main attraction of the evening will be the premiere of the music video "For All the Children." You may recall that this video was filmed back in April and involved the participation of over 300 local Catholics.
C4ME-MN's yard signs will, of course, be available after August 15. Check Sensus Fidelium, the website of Catholics for Marriage Equality MN, next week for more information.
