INDIANAPOLIS (AP) A prominent Indiana conservative group has distributed a flier to churches around the state making dire predictions if a state constitutional amendment banning gay marriage isn't adopted.

Advance America executive director Eric Miller says the flier points out law changes that gay-rights activists are pushing around the country along with trying to legalize same-sex marriages.

The Sunday bulletin insert from Advance America first reported by The Indianapolis Star (http://indy.st/1dbj437 ) warns that allowing same-sex marriages opens the door to such thing as ministers facing hate-crime charges for preaching against homosexuality and cross-dressing men being allowed in women's restrooms.

The proposed amendment will be a major topic during the legislative session that starts next month.

Gay-rights supports say Advance America is using isolated examples or misconceptions as scare tactics.
