A coalition of businesses and activist groups who launched a push Wednesday to defeat an amendment that would write Indiana’s same-sex marriage ban into the state constitution warned that if it passes it would set the state back and undermine the rights of its gay and lesbian residents. The push by the new Freedom Indiana coalition heralds an expected battle in Indiana’s next legislative session, not just between same-sex marriage opponents and gay rights advocates, but also big corporations who contend such a ban would be bad for business. Freedom Indiana’s campaign manager is Megan Robertson, a Republican who ran U.S. Rep. Luke Messer’s successful 2012 campaign to win the eastern Indiana seat Rep. Mike Pence vacated to run for governor. She said the coalition’s push to defeat the amendment in the state’s Republican-controlled Legislature will be a bipartisan effort.
