Continuing our theme of newspaper editorials against SJR-7 (see my post and Chris's update with another editorial from the Ft. Wayne Journal-Gazette), how could I have forgotten the Logansport Pharos-Tribune?

Whatever threats might face the institution of marriage will not be affected by this amendment.

And just to be clear, this is not a debate about the legality of same-sex marriages. State law already prohibits such unions. This measure would simply write that prohibition into the state constitution, something we see as unnecessary and discriminatory.

The constitution should be reserved for spelling out individual rights, not restricting them.

Indiana does not need a marriage amendment. We call on the Indiana House to reject this measure.


[ED NOTE:] An alert reader sends in notice that the Lafayette Journal Courier also editorialized against SJR-7 back at the beginning of February when the Senate passed it out of committee. The editorial is now in the archives, so directly linking to it is impossible. It's number six on the list if you're saving the editorials and must have it for your collection. (It'll cost you $2.95.)

The Pharos-Tribune is not exactly a liberal mouthpiece. By far. I'm guessing you, I and all your readers would be appalled at some fo their editorial positions.

So for them, this is big.

Goes to show how themainstream media is coming around. Late.
