Minnesota marriage equality supporters are gearing up to fight a proposed constitutional amendment—defining marriage between a man and woman. The national organization, Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) is standing with them, the Post-Bulletin reports.

"Our place in the movement is rather unique in that we are a national family organization," PFLAG National Executive Director Jody Huckaby said Sunday at a Rochester Community and Technical College gathering.

Huckaby and his brother, both gay, were raised in a conservative Catholic family. Their father became more supportive after considering the thought of losing his grandchildren. Huckaby's brother and partner have children.

U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops claims refusing to legally recognize same-sex marriage isn't discriminatory, since marriage and civil unions are “different realities.” Per Minnesota law, marriage is between a man and woman. The amendment would cement that into the state's constitution.
