Indiana: Same Sex Marriage Ban
There is growing official opposition to a proposal to amend the Indiana Constitution to ban same-sex marriages.
The General Assembly is going to mull over whether to add the ban to the Constitution in its next session.
If the passes muster in the Legislature, Hoosier voters will find the measure on the ballot next November.
Now Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard has joined the campaign against the measure, signing a resolution opposed to the ban.
Business, education, and social organizations feel such a ban would buck what is becoming a national trend, and actually discourage workers and businesses from coming to the Hoosier state.
While conservative groups are pushing to include the ban on same-sex marriage in the state Constitution, those against the ban point out the state already defines marriage as between a man and a woman.
