Albany Won't Support The Anti-Gay Indiana House Joint Resolution

Written by 

Albany has decided not to support the amendment (Indiana House Joint Resolution/HJR-6) that describes marriage as a union between a man and a woman.

Thus, the Albany City Council in Indiana decided to oppose inequality for all its citizens, as leaders of the Indianapolis had also decided a few days ago.

Before the Council's vote, Councilman John Gonder said the proposal is a step backward for the state, as WHAS11 reports.

"The force and the flow of history is toward tolerance and here we are making a statement of intolerance and trying to encapsulate it into the constitution, which is a bigger step than just passing a law that could be overridden," Gonder said.

Of course, you should understand that this does not mean they support marriage equality, but they think this constitutional amendment is not necessary.

In addition, there wouldn't be just the LGBT community who would be penalized, but straight couples in a civil union or domestic partnership could not have the same rights either.
