NOM: Stop Illinois & Minnesota Marriage

In two nearly identical notices, NOM has posted emergency warnings that same-sex marriage is about to be legalized in Illinois and Minnesota.  From the Minnesota post:
In November, Minnesotans voted to maintain the status quo on marriage, as Minnesota statutes already recognize marriage as the union of a husband and wife. Now gay marriage activists are trying to force a whole new battle on the state. But the people of Minnesota know as well as you and I do what negative consequences would follow in the wake of same-sex marriage becoming law. Activists know the American people—even those who support same-sex marriage—don't want to force religious groups to go against their beliefs. And yet everywhere same-sex marriage becomes law, it is people of faith who become the law's first targets.

Across the country, Catholic Charities is being forced to drop their adoption and foster care services wherever same-sex marriage is enacted. Reception halls, inns, and bed and breakfasts are being sued if they decline to host same-sex wedding ceremonies or receptions. And schools across the country are facing increasing pressures to teach elementary students about "Prince & Prince," or "Heather's Two Mommies." Send your lawmakers a message: Don't Mess with Marriage!
Note how NOM characterizes their loss in November. Heh.
