Preview of today's IN marriage hearing: Reasoned arguments based in civil law vs. 'it's an abomination'

by Jeremy Hooper

WISH-TV, Indianapolis' CBS affiliate, has a preview of today's hearing on a proposed ban to alter the Indiana state constitution so that it is an expressed weapon against same-sex couples' civil rights. For an idea of how the arguments are sure to play out, listen to the points that the bill's opponents raise versus the rationale of the anti-gay advocate:

No word if God will show up to testify that he does, in fact, think his self-appointed press representatives should be pitting the optional component that is a religious ceremony against the civil marriage license that is required of all couples wishing to receive state and federal benefits. But probably not, since he's likely really busy blessing all the joyful same-sex couples who are marrying daily in seventeen states and D.C.
