MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Sen. Al Franken is joining a campaign to promote marriage equality nationwide.

“I think everybody should be able to marry the person they love,” Franken said in a web ad. “I think our government should help people to make those loving, lifelong committments.”

Franken taped the web ad for the Human Rights Campaign.

In the ad, Franken said he supports marriage equality, and he asks others to join him in that support.

    1. Hey Fool says:

      What a dumb butt.

    2. Dumb post says:

      You can marry whatever you want. You being married to a dog will mean absolutely nothing to me.

    3. Kilgore says:

      “I want to marry my dog is that legal it should be”…Behold the intellectual prowess of those that oppose same-sex marriage. On the plus side, this genius most likely will not be able to figure out how to fill in the blanks on his ballot or read the big words.

      LOL LOL Makes sense to me. He is nothing but a dingbat.

    5. what ever says:

      LOL… now we need to open abortion clinics for animals so they have abortions too. More funding for nut job socialist programs!

      1. max says:

        I think we ought to fund programs so that folks like those who make comments about marrying dogs and abortion clinics for animals can get the “help” they so desparately need.

    6. Jeremy Pettit says:

      The issue is between two consenting adults. An animal cannot give consent, neither can a kitchen appliance nor a child.

  2. BizOwner says:

    When your dog starts paying taxes in this country and starts making intelligent decisions on its own, we will give it a passport and allow it marry you. Until then, go back to high school and keep studying. Say hi to the puppy.

  3. Bible says:

    What ever happened to what the Bible says?

    1. Keep religion out of goverment. says:

      What ever happened to separation of church and state? The Bible should never dictate policy. How would you like it if we had laws was based off of what the Qur’an says?

      Keep religion in church and in your home like the Bible says.

        2. Kevin's dad says:

          Shut up, Kevin.

        3. RMT says:

          So is it God, country, your church or some casterated liberal who taught you how to curse?

    2. BringItOn says:

      I agree. We should go back to what the bible says. Let’s start by stoning all of the Adulterers — plenty of them. Then we can start on these disrespectful kids .. sure would like to throw some rocks at them … wow .. actually, the Biblical interpretation could be fun. And how about that “unclean” wife having to live in a hut for a week a month – that must have been invented by a man

  4. angus says:

    Not everyone agrees with the Bible nor is it the Holy Book for all religions.

    And what about the Christian religions that use the Bible and still agree with gays getting married?

  5. Bill Clintons Cigar says:

  6. kevin's stalker barb says:

    I did not vote for this guy and I never will.

  8. Jackie Du Charme says:

    I agree, politics doesn’t belong in religion but you sure can’t tell the dumb bunnies in government that. They do not understand it. Big Frank. is looking for votes for when he runs again.

  9. what ever says:

    Al Frankin / Stuart Smalley: “I’m Good Enough, I’m Smart Enough, and Doggone It, People Like Me!”

    what ever: “Al you are good enough to steal an election, smart enought to stay low and do nothing in the senate, and people do not like you!”

  10. james2 says:

    All of the haters and neanderthals and zealots have not weighed in yet with their ignorance.

    Hurry up, time is running out. This story will soon be gone.

  11. Bye GOP says:

    I love me some Al Franken! Happy to have voted for this man.

  12. Jay says:

    I read recently Mn is the capital of gay population, long before held by San Francisco. WHY are they all moving here??. This Franken idiot is just looking for re-election and is trying to gain votes anywhere he can.
