Conservatives angry at GOP chiefs in marriage loss

Indianapolis — Religious conservatives who lost Indiana's gay marriage battle are placing the blame with Indiana's legislative leaders.

American Family Association of Indiana Director Micah Clark said Republican House Speaker Brian Bosma promised him and other marriage ban supporters the proposed constitutional amendment would pass the House unaltered and receive a public referendum this year. Bosma said Tuesday he promised only that the full House would consider the measure.

Indiana lawmakers amended the measure and delayed a referendum until at least 2016, despite calls from social and religious conservatives to hold the vote this year.

Republican Sen. Mike Delph of Carmel blamed Senate Republican leaders for the delay. But other Senate conservatives who voted for the amended bill said they would have to accept the measure as is.
