Indiana Residents May Want To Listen To U.S. Supreme Court Hearing

Some Hoosiers will pay close attention today as the U.S. Supreme Court hears arguments on same-sex marriage.

Last year, a federal court found Indiana’s same-sex marriage ban to be unconstitutional. This year, lawmakers passed a Religious Freedom law that some said allowed discrimination against same-sex couples.

The law was amended, but not before a local and national outcry. That’s why Katie Blair, who’s with the LGBTQ advocacy group Freedom Indiana, doesn’t think Indiana will revert to its old ways no matter how the U-S Supreme Court rules.

“Of course, in the back of our minds, there is that concern that it won’t go the way that we want it to,” Blair said. “But we’re remaining hopeful.”

Some religious conservatives in Indiana filed briefs with the Court in support of a same-sex marriage ban.
