Indiana Republicans throw a tantrum over gay marriage ban
[INDIANAPOLIS, IN] - The debate over Indiana's constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage threatens to overshadow other matters in the closing days of Indiana's legislature after the house ground to a halt over the issue. Democratic house of representatives speaker Patrick Bauer has tried to steer clear of the issue, saying the ban in current state law is sufficient. But Republicans say the sanctity of marriage is at stake, and they may continue a boycott of the chamber unless Bauer at least gives them a chance to advance the proposed amendment. "It's clear that this is the single issue of grave importance to our state that can be dealt with in the remaining time," house Republican leader Brian Bosma said Tuesday.
