Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- Thousands of faith and religious leaders in Minnesota continue to speak out against the state marriage amendment.

The proposed constitutional amendment defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman, will be before Minnesota voters in the fall.

At numerous Faith Action gatherings across the state this past week, people had conversations about the marriage amendment.

On Sunday, Catholics came together at a home in Duluth's Lakeside neighborhood.

Dan Glisczinski, a life-long Catholic says he realizes he may be going against the Catholic doctrine by voting no on the marriage amendment, but says he respectfully disagrees.

"If we have the good fortune of going to heaven someday, and that's something that we pray we get to do, we'll stand before our God,” Dan Glisczinski said. “We'll make mistakes in our lives. “But if we make mistakes on issues like voting no, we're making mistakes on the side of love, on the side of care and on the side of Jesus’s example of investment in other human dignity."

Faith In Action Week events coincided with several Minnesotans United For All Families events.
