About that group fighting to amend Indiana's constitution...

by Jeremy Hooper

Advance America is the organization leading the charge to amend the Hoosier State's constitution so that it expressly bans same-sex marriage. But is that really where their agenda begins and ends?

In a word: No. This organization has admitted that it sees homosexuality itself as wrong:

Also, the organization opposed federal hate crimes protections (now firmly inscribed into law) by falsely (and deliberately) claiming that homosexuality and pedophilia are on-par sexual orientations that would both be protected by the bill:

So when this debate starts going and all involved pretend theirs is a limited cause geared toward "protecting marriage," we must stand up and call their bluff. It's about more. It always is with these groups.
