Ind. Gov't. - "Out-of-touch lawmakers restrain state"

From Sunday, July 6th, an editorial in the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette. Hitting on a number of issues, including gun control, immigration, regulation of child care, the editorial concludes:

The gay marriage supporters who packed the Statehouse last winter abandoned them in May; reinforcing the far-right’s electoral clout and reminding elected officials that same-sex marriage supporters can hold boisterous demonstrations but don’t bother to vote. Attorney General Greg Zoeller clearly acknowledged that when he rushed to request a stay on the federal court’s decision to overturn Indiana’s ban on gay marriage.

If Indiana is ever to escape the quagmire of divisive and backward cultural issues, moderate and progressive voices need to spend less time changing hearts and minds and more time registering voters and getting them to the polls.
