Constitutional marriage amendment and religion

The state of Minnesota will be voting on an amendment this fall which would change the constitution in order to restrict the definition of marriage, so that it can only be between one man and one woman.  This is being done, even though this is already state law.  Much of the energy for this proposed amendment comes from people concerned about defending their religious beliefs.

It seems that with an obesity epidemic, this same group of folks should also be supportive of outlawing gluttony.  With a growing gap between the ultra rich and poor, I'm not hearing this same outcry about greed from this group of folks. Jesus preached a whole lot about caring for the poor, but spoke not one word against people being in committed loving relationships with people of the same sex.
