It is a precedent that should set the tone for legislatures concerning a ban on civil unions.
And a constitutional ban does nothing but distract Indiana’s General Assembly from more pressing issues – the economy, school funding, and jobs.
The Legislature’s debate over same-sex unions has grown tiresome and is losing steam every year.
Most Hoosiers know the issue became more outdated as recently as last week. The U.S. Supreme Court and Hoosier polling seem to coincide with support for equal rights. It is time the state GOP recognizes how pointless this pursuit of a constitutional ban has become.
In summary The GOP will push again for a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage in Indiana. This is a distraction from other much-needed legislation.
