In response to the proposed marriage discrimination amendment (HJR-6) in Indiana, there is going to be a Rally for Equality on Monday, March 14th from 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m. at the Indiana Statehouse in Indianapolis.
I'm helping to work on this event. I am doing this because, as a PFLAG parent, I am very angry and disgusted with our state legislators. They have no compassion and don't care what can potentially happen to our GLBT children.
We know that this bill will be bad for business and education in Indiana. Bright and talented individuals will not want to enter a state that officially says "You're not wanted."
We also know that this bill will threaten families who could lose the rights and protections available to them. But I wonder what these legislators who are voting for the bill would say if confronted by a parent who says, "You're going to ruin my child's life - why is my child any less than yours?"
