Yes. Obviously. But also in other areas in earlier periods.

They all have political agendas of one sort or another. The purity of the U.S. Constitution isn't always one of them.

What is this, the forth time... fifth time these folks have tried to push this through? I lost count.

Actually, I'm kind of glad to see Miller and his band of thugs at it again. It just demonstrates that they are more interested in wedge issues and politicking than in the real issues that plague our state.

The SCOTUS doesn't give a damn if people don't like their decisions. You clearly are incapable of understanding the role of the judicial branch.

There are still a huge number of gays in this state, and we aren't being quiet.

Very true. I just wish P-Flag were more political in this state.

I don't understand how marriage would be threatened by including gays anyway. Wouldn't more people being a part of something and in support of something just make that thing STRONGER?

Protect marriage! Include everyone!

They don't want gay relationships to be stronger--it invalidates their perception of us as all being promiscuous sex fiends.

I am so glad to be from Indiana. The operative word is FROM. Every time I go back I am stunned at how far behind in everything regarding anything outside a myopic and intensely regressive world view so many (not all!) people remain back there. No wonder derisive east and west coasters still call the Midwest the "fly-over"...and with attitudes like the state senate just exposed Indiana will stay a backwards, back-water that I can barely stand to visit let alone ever think of as a place to move my business or family. Sorry Mom in IN.
I too am FROM Indiana, born and raised. Although I've lived in other areas of the country, for short periods, throughout my life, the vast majority of my years have been spent there, and most of my family is still there. Living there is boring, there isn't much to do, but every time I leave, there is something I miss about it. You call it "behind" or "regressive", but there is a sense of morality there that I haven't seen anywhere else I've lived. We weren't immune from societal problems, but they were so much less prevelant because of that morality. The closeness and importance placed on family, the small close-knit communities, the sense of personal responsibility. We could leave our doors unlocked, and let our kids go play without having to worry. We all knew each other, and each others kids, we kept an eye on them and our neighbors property, and helped each other out. Drug use was low, few unwanted pregnancies and low teen pregnancy rates. I think the entire country could learn alot from the small town environment there in northwest Indiana. I miss it, except for the winters, of course. If what I see down here, and in other areas I've lived is what you call "progress", you can keep it.
