VIDEO: Rachel Maddow, parents of slain soldier on Minnesota’s anti-gay marriage amendment


Back in April, I posted about Jeff and Lori Wilfahrt, two wonderful people and parents of a gay son who, sadly, was killed in Afghanistan only a few weeks ago. I met them when we did the Tim Corrimal radio show together, and we've been email friends ever since.

Andrew Wilfahrt is thought to be the first gay Minnesota soldier to die in the service of his country in the war in Afghanistan.

We know this is a cool family because Margie J. Phelps hates them.

But they've got Rachel on their side:

Rep. John Kriesel gave a passionate, moving speech against a Minnesota gay marriage ban in Corporal Andrew Wilfahrt's name. Rachel talks to Andrew's parents Jeff & Lori Wilfahert.
