Going viral: Two Minnesota YouTube hits from debate on marriage


The Uptake‘s video of Representative Steve Simon’s statement on a proposed constitutional amendment banning gay marriage (above) went viral, with nearly half a million hits in less than a week. He says if sexual orientation is innate as science is showing us, and not a lifestyle choice, then God created gay people. He asks how many gay people must God create before we accept that he wants them around. A second YouTube video (below) by a young, straight Republican presents an equally compelling message, though it hasn’t yet garnered as many views.
