INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Opponents of same-sex marriage in Indiana say a U.S. Supreme Court ruling making the practice legal across the country ignores the religious beliefs of many Americans.

The court ruled 5-4 Friday that same-sex couples have a right to marry anywhere in the United States. The ruling won’t bring many changes to Indiana because the state has allowed same-sex marriage since October, when the high court refused to hear the state’s appeal of a ruling that found its ban on gay marriage unconstitutional.

Top Republicans including U.S. Sen. Dan Coats and Rep. Luke Messer said Friday’s ruling illustrates the importance of protecting religious freedom and allowing people to follow their conscience.
