Indiana Chamber on Sidelines for HJR-6 Fight
The Associated Press reports that the Indiana Chamber will not take a position on the issue which does have critical economic ramifications across Indiana. Many large Indiana employers such as Lilly and Cummins have decided to oppose the ban on pretty much everything but marriage between a man and a woman because they realize the impact it would have on their employees.
It’s disappointing that the Chamber will not take a position. It’s in fact quite cowardly in my opinion. Why wouldn’t the Indiana Chamber want to promote a state that values everyone and families of all kinds, straight and gay. By remaining silent and not putting its considerable weight behind equality in Indiana, it simply allows inequality to continue.
I guess that’s hunky dory with the Indiana Chamber of Commerce.
