Marriage Amendment Supporters To Rally At General Mills

GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. (WCCO) – People supporting the amendment to ban same sex marriage in Minnesota will be protesting the rest of the week at General Mills headquarters in Golden Valley.

Earlier this month, General Mills, which is one of Minnesota’s largest companies, took a controversial stand on the state’s marriage amendment that will be on the ballot in November. The company said it’s opposed to the amendment, which would define marriage in the state constitution as a union between one man and one woman.

The statement brought both praise and sharp criticism. The group ‘Minnesota for Marriage’ will be protesting outside General Mills’ headquarters in Golden Valley through the rest of the week.

‘Minnesota for Marriage’ recently announced that it has raised $1.4-million so far.

The main group against the amendment, “Minnesotans United for All Families,” says it’s raised $4.6 million towards its cause.

The only other major Minnesota company to take a stand is St. Jude Medical, which also opposes the marriage amendment.
