 Opponents of HJR-6, the proposed state constitutional amendment that would ban same-sex marriage gathered in Huntington.  The meeting was an effort to inform the public about the proposed legislation.   

Freedom Indiana hopes to defeat the proposed amendment, which seeks to change the Indiana State Constitution to define marriage as being between a man and a woman.           

State lawmakers will debate HJR-6 during next year's legislative session. If it moves forward, Indiana voters would weigh in during a statewide referendum in November 2014.

We spoke with leaders from Freedom Indiana who say educating the public is key in seeing this proposed amendment fail.

 “We are opposed to HJR-6—the constitutional amendment that would ban gay marriage in our state.  We are here to tell people that we don’t want this in our constitution.  We think it’s discriminatory and we want to make sure it doesn’t pass,” said Chris Walls, Volunteer.    

WFFT also spoke with Associate Pastor Peter Gregory, St. Paul’s Lutheran Church.  He is a strong supporter of H-J-R-6.

“Marriage unites man and woman with one another and with any children born from their union. There’s no public purpose in recognizing the union of two men or two women,” said Gregory.
