"I am opposed to efforts to amend the Constitution to limit the rights of our people--this contradicts our entire history and our basic values as a nation. I am a sworn enemy of discrimination on account of race, gender and sexual orientation and have long worked in that cause. Here in Indianapolis those who followed the matter will recall that I worked hard to see to it that our City-County Council understood the importance--the fundamental fairness--of protection against discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. I was gratified when the council finally voted correctly, against bigotry, a familiar old enemy."

-- Representative Julia Carson (D-IN) in an interview for bilerico.com in 2006. Rep Carson died of lung cancer last weekend.
