Per WCSI out of Columbus and to nobody’s surprise, the Indiana General Assembly will move forward with a Constitutional Amendment that, along with gay marriage, bars future legislators from adopting laws giving unmarried individuals rights substantially similar to those enjoyed by a married man and woman.
The shorthand for this Amendment is going to be “gay marriage,” but the second sentence of the amendment looks like a potentially huge wild card that goes beyond whether or not gay people can get married:
A legal status substantially similar to that of marriage for unmarried individuals shall not be valid.
What does that mean? You tell me. I don’t know.
