As I was protesting in front of the House today, a woman came up who seemed supportive but eventually stated that same-sex couples can have all the same provisions of legal marriage if they just get all the legal paperwork done. I explained otherwise, and then she had to leave, saying how great is was that we could disagree. Yes yes, isn't disagreement grand.
A man who actually was supportive came up later and we had quite a long talk about the state of marriage equality. He accepted a Marriage Equality sticker and put it on.
While in front of the Senate, I spoke with a lobbyist for the medical industry about the Medical Marijuana bill. We were laughing about how it's splitting the Republicans since half of them support it and half don't and they're just kind of eating each other. Also, some Republican legislators who support Medical Marijuana are publicly dissing the Minnesota Family Council and complaining about the "religious" wing of the party pushing them around. Oh the hilarity.
