Reader’s view: Preserve family values by opposing gay-marriage banI was talking with a friend the other day; and since we were both born in the 1950s, we were feeling a bit nostalgic about how things used to be. We regretted the loss of civility, family unity, self-sacrifice, work ethic, loyalty and responsibility. All these values we learned as children and still hold dear today seem to be slipping away. But what he said next surprised me. He said it was time to draw a line in the sand and stop this slide into self-indulgence by passing a constitutional amendment against any future possibility of gay marriage in Minnesota. He said he was tired of our values eroding.
