The Evansville City Council took a stand Monday night against a proposed state constitutional amendment that would permanently define marriage as being between a man and a woman. It’s already against the law in Indiana for marriage to be anything other than a union between one man and one woman, but there’s a push in the state to get that law written into the constitution. It’s known as HJR 6, and the council passed a resolution voicing its opposition to that measure.

Evansville and Bloomington are the third and sixth largest cities in the state. Both the mayor and Chamber of Commerce in Indianapolis, the state’s largest city, have come out in opposition to the ban. Anyone know if there’s a movement afoot for the Indianapolis city Council to vote against it?
