In response to Brian Howey's Dec. 22 column, he is right. I will take ownership of the proposed constitutional ban on same-sex marriage and civil unions.

Thank the Lord for men like Gov. Mike Pence, House Speaker Brian Bosma, Senate President David Long with character and conviction to stand up for righteousness (which exalteth a nation) and stand against the Sodomite agenda (but sin is a reproach to any people) being pushed on America.

How did the federal law, Defense of Marriage Act, work out for America? Passed by both chambers of Congress in 1996 with a large veto-proof majority but struck down by activist Supreme Court judges (5-4 decision) on June 26, 2013, as being unconstitutional, not to mention all their other records of ungodly decisions.

Let Indiana voters decide, not the Brian Howeys of this world or the biased polls.
