MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Lutherans in Minnesota plan to officially voice their opposition to the proposed state constitutional amendment that would ban same-sex marriage.

Close to 1,000 Lutheran representatives will vote on the issue on Friday at the annual assembly.

The resolution says the amendment would prevent one group of committed couples and families from having the same rights and protections afforded to all others.

In 2009, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America assembly in Minneapolis passed a policy that moved toward a more accepting response to same-gender relationships.

The assembly also passed resolutions that allowed for congregations to support leaders within the ELCA in committed same-gender partnerships.
