Bloomington mayor Mark Kruzan spoke out against HJR-6.

The Bloomington City Council will address whether to pass a resolution opposing HJR-6, the proposed state constitutional amendment banning same sex marriage. A proposed resolution is on the council’s agenda for tonight’s meeting.

“Bloomington benefits economically because it’s a welcoming community in which people want to live, visit, and grow a business,” Bloomington Mayor Mark Kruzan said in a statement to Freedom Indiana. “HJR-6, in addition to being an unnecessary infringement of basic rights, threatens the business-friendly reputation of Indiana cities.”

Other mayors that spoke out against the amendment include Kokomo Mayor Greg Goodnight, Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard, and Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard.

    “HJR-6, in addition to being an unnecessary infringement of basic rights, threatens the business-friendly reputation of Indiana cities.” This is a load of crap from the carpetbagging clog wog Kruzan. What backs up this statement? Absolutely nothing. No real Hoosiers believe that two men should klommit such a disgusting sin as this. Kruzan and his Catholic friends who support homosex should go back to Ohio.
