Undecided on marriage amendment? Please tell us why...

Ok, so, we understand where the 'Vote Yes' people are coming from. We understand where the 'Vote No' people are coming from. But, what is causing people to remain undecided on the marriage amendment ballot measure? Polls suggest that as many as four percent of Minnesotans have not yet made up their minds on how they'll vote. If you have not decided which way you are voting on this matter, please use the comments as a forum to explain to us (in 50 words or less, please) why you are undecided on the amendment. If you've made up your mind, please stay on the sidelines.
