I'm afraid that I don't quite get the point. As much as people may or may not like it, homosexuals are becoming recognized as valid and even important members of our community. As that process continues, homosexuals will become to be seen as equals. If you will note, this is directly correlated with the increased number of people nationwide who support gay marriage.The Indiana Senate approved an amendment Tuesday to ban gay marriages in the Indiana Constitution.
The measure was passed 40-10 with an overwhelming majority. The amendment already has made it through the House, and now must gain approval again by both the House and the Senate. It must then gain a two-thirds majority vote by Indiana citizens.
Head of the Queer Student Union Nicholas Goldsmith, a junior in the College of Agriculture, said this measure is insulting to Hoosiers who are LGBT or have friends or family members who are LGBT.
"(The amendment) certainly won't bring jobs to Indiana," Goldsmith said. "It will scare people away."
Passing this law only to have it overturned in the next ten to twenty years seems to be a bit absurd and a waste of time and taxpayers money.
