Very misleading.

Why would a marriage license application be filled out with false information, even by Marriage Equality activists?

And why would you want your tax dollars to support these people in prison for 3 years and overcrowd our prisons with non-violent people for such a stupid reason? Are you being unforgiving and vindictive?

Not at all. That would happen ONLY if they put FALSE info on the application.

Solution: Only put factual information on the application. Duh.

Guess they left out other information like Posts and things of that sort which are seen as threatening can now be Convicted in Indiana Court.

The whole "falsifying information" issue relates to some stories of the past of people who have actually lied and gotten married to a same-sex partner who lived their lives as the opposite sex....

FTA: "The law would also penalize any official who solemnized the marriage between two people of the same sex".

So, if a Justice of The Peace also happens to be a minister, and marries a same-sex couple in his church, is he guilty of a crime? Interesting, considering the "separation of church and state" issue.

I didn't think of the transgendered issue.

Thanks for bringing it up.
