“When doing high schools across the
country we noticed that when the media began to push an illegal
agenda called the gay agenda (sodomy is illegal in this country) we

added. “The people of the great state of Minnesota now have the
power to vote. It is now up to you to decide for your posterity what
kind of future that you want to have for them. The power is in your
hands. I rest my case.”
