    Yesterday, I posted the text of a speech I delivered at Monday to Greenwood Rotary. Today, I’ll share the rest of the story. Let me set the stage, however, by being fair and pointing out that (1) the subject of the speech–the importance of science and what it tells us–was the choice of the Chapter President; (2) the program chair, […]

    Viewers of “Downton Abbey” have learned a painful lesson this season about the dangers of distraction: While everyone’s attention is focused elsewhere, a dastardly deed might be done—one with long-lasting and mushrooming repercussions. On “Downton,” the crime is rape. The victim is one of the sweetest women on the show, a lady’s maid named Anna. The bad guy is an outsider, […]

    Here in Indiana, we’re used to religious warfare. We aren’t called the buckle of the bible belt for nothing. Those battles generally pit people who understand religious liberty to require state neutrality in matters of belief against folks who want government to make everyone live in accordance with the “correct” beliefs (which just happen to be theirs). That, in a […]

    There are more than enough reasons to oppose HJR3, the proposed constitutional amendment banning gay marriage in Indiana that apparently is only half as good as its predecessor, HJR6. My employer, Eli Lilly and Company, talks a lot about the cost to business. Recruiting and retaining top global talent – LGBT, straight allies, and families – will take a big […]

    A growing number of organizations is focused on making Indiana a more livable and welcoming state for everyone. While the state legislature considers passing HJR6 – a bill that would allow all Hoosier voters to decide whether a small number of fellow Hoosiers (the gay ones) should be constitutionally prohibited from marrying – groups such as Indiana University, Cummins, Eli […]

    A note to Gov. Mike Pence, Speaker Brian Bosma and Sen. David Long (in regard to HJR-6 on Gay Marriage). Dear Mike, Brian and David: Sorry for the impersonal salutation, but I’m writing on a personal matter. I want to ask how your marriages are faring. Mine is quite joyous, thank you. I sincerely hope you can say the same. […]

    Heard about Freedom Indiana? If not, here are a few hints about the demographics of this new organization: It has both Republicans and Democrats. It includes Fortune 500 companies and individual citizens. Hoosiers and non-Hoosiers alike are members. And they have a common cause front-and-center. In the aftermath of the U.S. Supreme Court decisions this summer on the legalities of […]
