Dear Marriage Supporter,
The Indiana House is meeting today to discuss the proposed marriage amendment, HJR3, at 1:30 PM.
In order for Indiana's citizens to be guaranteed the chance to vote on this measure in November 2014, the legislature needs to pass HJR3 without substantial changes. Amending the resolution could possibly be interpreted to require another legislative approval next year and thus delay voters' chance to have a say on this matter until 2016! So please, tell the legislature to let the people vote in 2014 by passing HJR3 without amendment.
By the way, the language that they are trying to change (in order to appease the gay marriage lobby) would strip a crucial second sentence from the bill that seeks to prevent marriage from being arbitrarily redefined in Indiana by some activist judge in the future. This is an unacceptable change in any event.
