Church flier targets Indiana marriage amendment

Indianapolis — A prominent Indiana conservative group has distributed a flier to churches around the state making dire predictions if a state constitutional amendment banning gay marriage isn't adopted.

The Sunday bulletin insert from Advance America warns that allowing same-sex marriages opens the door to such thing as ministers facing hate-crime charges for preaching against homosexuality and cross-dressing men being allowed in women's restrooms.

The proposed amendment will be a major topic during the legislative session that starts next month.

Advance America claims more than 3,700 member churches statewide, but The Indianapolis Star reports it is unclear how many have distributed it.

Gay-rights activists say Advance America is using isolated examples or misconceptions as scare tactics. Advance America director Eric Miller didn't immediately return a message seeking comment Friday.
