Marriage equality in Ohio?

A group called FreedomOhio has been working for a year on a ballot issue that would repeal Ohio’s marriage ban implemented in 2004, while preserving the right of religious institutions not to perform or recognize such marriages.

Ian James, FreedomOhio’s co-founder, said he is “99.8 percent certain” the group will obtain the 385,253 signatures needed to place the issue on the ballot – perhaps by this November.

However – believing it is politically too soon to make the challenge – the Ohio Democratic Party has not supported a 2013 vote on the issue, neither has Equality Ohio – with more than 30,000 members.
