Attorney General Greg Zoeller says the judicial system is the right place for the fate of Indiana’s gay marriage ban statute to be decided.
During the legislative debate over HJR-3, the proposed constitutional amendment banning same sex marriage, lawmakers often said the purpose of the amendment was to provide added protection for Indiana’s marriage statute, which defines marriage as between one man and one woman.
The common refrain from people like Speaker Brian Bosma was that the question of marriage in Indiana shouldn’t be decided by one person.
