A heartfelt letter of apology from the MN gay community to recently resigned Republican Senate Majority Leader, Amy Koch

Amy Koch, resigned MN Senate Majority
Leader and sanctimonious fraud
Quick back story:

MN Republican Senate Majority Leader and public champion of legislating everyone else's morals, Amy Koch, campaigns with fellow MN Republican legislators, including her (now former) staffer Michael Brodkorb, to put a state constitutional amendment on next year's ballot to define marriage as the union of one man and one woman, thus forbidding those evil gays from marrying the person they love and destroying good Christian one-man-one-woman marriages like Amy's.

And then lo and behold, little Miss Sanctimonious Fraud-ette gets caught defiling and de-sanctifying her own one-man-one-woman marriage and has to resign as Senate Majority Leader and vow not to run for Senate again.

the alleged other half of Koch's "illicit affair"
So in response to this horrible tragedy that has befallen former Senate Majority Leader, Amy Koch, the gay community in Minnesota has issued a letter of apology:
Dear Ms. Koch,
On behalf of all gays and lesbians living in Minnesota, I would like to wholeheartedly apologize for our community's successful efforts to threaten your traditional marriage. We are ashamed of ourselves for causing you to have what the media refers to as an "illicit affair" with your staffer, and we also extend our deepest apologies to him and to his wife. These recent events have made it quite clear that our gay and lesbian tactics have gone too far, affecting even the most respectful of our society.
We apologize that our selfish requests to marry those we love has cheapened and degraded traditional marriage so much that we caused you to stray from your own holy union for something more cheap and tawdry. And we are doubly remorseful in knowing that many will see this as a form of sexual harassment of a subordinate.
It is now clear to us that if we were not so self-focused and myopic, we would have been able to see that the time you wasted diligently writing legislation that would forever seal the definition of marriage as being between one man and one woman, could have been more usefully spent reshaping the legal definition of "adultery."
Forgive us. As you know, we are not church-going people, so we are unable to fully appreciate that "gay marriage" is incompatible with Christian values, despite the fact that those values carry a biblical tradition of adultery such as yours. We applaud you for keeping that tradition going.
And finally, shame on us for thinking that marriage is a private affair, and that our marriage would have little impact on anyone's family. We now see that marriage is more than that. It is an agreement with society. We should listen to the Minnesota Family Council when it tells us that marriage is about being public, which explains why marriages are public ceremonies. Never did we realize that it is exactly because of this societal agreement that the entire world is looking at you in shame and disappointment instead of minding its own business.
From the bottom of our hearts, we ask that you please accept our apology.
Thank you.

And it is at times like this that I cannot help but think of parents like Jeff and Lori Wilfahrt who fought on behalf of their gay son and fallen soldier, Cpl. Andrew Wilfahrt to keep this odious amendment from going on the ballot in 2012. I just have to wonder if Amy Koch felt any guilt or shame when they testified in front of her and her fellow legislators in the halls of the Minnesota State Capitol. And the evil side of me also wonders how many other Republicans were also boinking someone other than their opposite-sex spouses while fighting to deny loving gay couples the right to marry the person they love.

And there is no shortage of anti-gay hate going on in my beloved Minnesota eitherMinnesota DFL: In All Its Different Forms...Family Is About LoveMinnesota Poll: 55% oppose ban on gay marriageAnother Minnesota Politician and HeroThank you Jeff and Lori Wilfahrt, your son would be so proud
