Crowd Packs Indiana Statehouse to Oppose Gay Marriage
Over 1,000 people jammed the Indiana statehouse today to support an amendment that would ban gay marriage, according to the South Bend Tribune:
"The conservative group Advance America organized the rally, which drew a crowd so large that many watched speeches from the upper levels of the Statehouse. Advance America founder Eric Miller urged lawmakers to repeal property taxes and support a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage.
'It's not a Republican or Democrat issue,' he said. 'It's right versus wrong.'"
It's possible the amendment could appear on the 2008 ballot should this legislature pass it, as it requires two separately-elected General Assemblies to pass the measure, and it was passed already in 2005.
