Well, the good news is that initial polls in Minnesota were even worse than the 54% of Indiana voters who will fail to oppose the amendment.

But perhaps I am too cynical. Up until the fall of 2012, you could count on the "wouldn't answer," "don't know," and "not sure" crowd to vote against same-sex marriage. But there's strong evidence from Maine, Maryland, Minnesota and Washington that the pattern is no longer valid. The 11% uncommitted may actually split their vote.

I hope the Indiana groups have created their infrastructure and are having millions of conversations with voters.

We've known since the early days of social science what history has taught and common sense should reveal: Prejudice and discrimination cause needless suffering and death.

Writing prejudice into the constitution won't provide any benefit to opposite sex couples. It only harms same sex couples needlessly.

First Circuit Appeals:

"Although the House Report is filled with encomia to heterosexual marriage, DOMA does not increase benefits to opposite-sex couples--whose marriages may in any event be childless, unstable or both--or explain how denying benefits to same-sex couples will reinforce heterosexual marriage. Certainly, the denial will not affect the gender choices of those seeking marriage. This is not merely a matter of poor fit of remedy to perceived problem, Lee Optical, 348 U.S. at 487-88; City of Cleburne, 473 U.S. at 446-50, but a lack of any demonstrated connection between DOMA's treatment of same-sex couples and its asserted goal of strengthening the bonds and benefits to society of heterosexual marriage."

Since Jewish Americans, and Muslim Americans, are certainly NOT living the "Christian lifestyle", let's VOTE on whether we should allow THEM to get married !:)
