To the editor:

I am confident that a majority of Indiana citizens share my appreciation for the bold leadership and compassion displayed by our business community, universities and colleges, clergy, chambers of commerce, mayors (Republicans and Democrats), and many others who have publicly joined forces to defeat Indiana HJR6 (amendment to define marriage strictly between males and females).

These individuals and entities have joined forces to protect our family members, neighbors, employees, community volunteers and taxpayers from being discriminated against due to their sexual preferences. Given Indiana’s spotty history of past discrimination, this is quite refreshing.

There is no need for me to repeat the laundry list of solid arguments against the passage of HJR6. Reputable community leaders have communicated the consequences of this bill’s passage based upon their many years of business and civic experiences. It is ironic that we find a situation where the business community is having to teach morals to normally “good people.”
