This documentary highlights voices of faith supporting marriage equality in Minnesota. I spent nearly a year interviewing faith leaders across a spectrum of beliefs, along with scholars, politicians and everyday people—all discussing how their views of religious texts and traditions support marriage among any two consenting adults. The title, “God Votes No,” stemmed from the effort to defeat a proposal on the November 2012 ballot to define marriage in the Minnesota state constitution as the exclusive domain of one man and one woman. “God Votes No” features interviews with U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, practicing Mormons Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker of the Duluth band Low, and author Jay Michaelson, among many others.
