Progress Michigan Applauds Gay Marriage Ruling
MICHIGAN — Today, Progress Michigan praised the ruling by U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman to strike down Michigan’s gay marriage ban. The decision comes after a circus-like trial where Gov. Rick Snyder and Attorney General Bill Schuette tried desperately to defend the ban with unqualified and bizarre witnesses.
“This is a great step forward for Michigan and should be a signal to every single public official that discrimination cannot — and will not — stand in our state,” said Lonnie Scott, executive director of Progress Michigan. “Michigan still has steps to take to ensure that everyone in our state has equal protection and rights under the law, but today is a signal toward progress.”
