Gay marriage ban starts rolling in Indiana

According to The Journal Gazette, the GOP-led Senate voted Thursday to approve a constitutional amendment that would ban gay marriage in Indiana.  The vote was 38-10. 
The bill now goes to the House of Representatives.  The resolution must be approved again in 2011 before voters could make the final decision in a 2012 statewide referendum.

“Marriage is one of the foundations of our society and one I firmly believe needs to be protected,” said Sen. Carlin Yoder, R-Middlebury.

Indiana already has a state law defining marriage as between one man and one woman, and it was upheld by the Indiana Court of Appeals in 2005.

How many times do these legislators feel like they have to slam the door?
