Indianapolis Leaders To Take A Stand Against Constitutional Amendment Banning Equal Marriage

Written by 



It seems that Indianapolis city leaders decided to officially show their opposition to marriage equality constitutional ban.

This evening, Indystar reveals that the the City-County Council of Indianapolis will express its support or opposition to the amendment which would ban marriage equality in the constitution of Indiana.

In fact, the vote doesn't took place yet but Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard already pre-emptively signed the council’s resolution urging the General Assembly to defeat the proposed constitutional amendment as reports the newspaper.

Currently, Indiana already bans same-sex marriage but not in its constitution. So this amendment would constitutionally prohibit equal marriage and would also prevent any protections against discriminations based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

Furthermore, partners of city or county employees could not have the same benefits than straight couples.

The legislature can decide then not to pass the amendment in early next year but if it approves it, the amendment will be submitted to a referendum in November 2014.
