Indiana House Speaker Brian Bosma and Indiana Senate President Pro Tem David Long, both Republicans, announced that they will delay any action on a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage until 2014. This will put it after any ruling regarding such amendments and the Defense of Marriage Act to come from the US Supreme Court.
The proposal would then have to go before the voters. Bosma stated, last week, that “Personally, I think it’s inadvisable to move forward with the United States Supreme Court having the issue before it.”
Of course, anti-gay advocates are not happy with this. The ill-named Advance America has condemned the move with their director, Eric Miller, stating “I think it’s important to let the people of Indiana know and let the Supreme Court know that Indiana is going to continue to move forward to protect marriage between a man and a woman.”
