Opponents of a proposed amendment to the Indiana Constitution which would define marriage as a heterosexual union on Sunday called off a planned candlelight vigil and rally.

“The snow is coming down pretty hard out there,” Freedom Indiana wrote in an email to supporters. “As a result, we're postponing both tonight's interfaith candlelight vigil and our Monday rally against HJR-6 due to the dangerous weather conditions.”

“The vigil will be held next Sunday at the same location,” the group said, adding that “we'll be in touch soon with a new date” for The Rally Against HJR-6, which had been scheduled to coincide with the start of the Indiana General Assembly's legislative session.

The Republican-controlled House and Senate approved HJR-6 in 2011. A needed second vote before heading to voters in November is expected to take place early in the upcoming session.

“The weather may have changed our plans, but it doesn't change the fact that our lawmakers need to know, right now, that a majority of Hoosiers oppose HJR-6!” the group added.
