Pence continues support for gay marriage ban

– Indiana Gov. Mike Pence is sticking to his support for a proposed state constitutional amendment banning gay marriage.

During a meeting with reporters Thursday in his Statehouse office, Pence repeatedly said he’s made himself clear on the issue. He said in an interview on WISH-TV last week that he wants lawmakers to restore the original language of the proposed amendment so it would also ban civil unions.

The Indiana House has approved the proposed amendment after removing the so-called “second sentence” that bans civil unions.

The measure goes before the Senate Rules Committee on Monday. If the Senate restores the second sentence, the House would need to sign off on the change for the proposed ban to go before Indiana voters in November.
