LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - Plans are underway to stage a statewide vote on legalizing gay marriage.
In 2004, Michigan voters overwhelmingly said no to gay marriage, but recent polling data suggests there's been a major shift in that attitude, although the opponents of gay marriage claim the polls are wrong.
"Personally, I think it's a good idea. If two people love each other and are committed to each other, I don't see an issue with it," said Rep. Tom Cochran.
GOP Rep. Margaret O'Brien says she wants to see the language before she signs off, but notes this dilemma in her family.
"On the one hand, you have your religious beliefs and on the other you have people in love," said O'brien.
One democratic lawmaker says he has a six year old daughter. He has not found a way yet to explain gay marriage to her, so for now he's on the fence.
"How does that play out when she sees two men and two women? I gotta figure out as a father with a 6-year-old? How do I explain that," said Rep. Harvey Santana.
Opponents reject the notion that it's unfair to discriminate against gays.
"I don't see this as a fairness issue," said Sen. Jack Brandenburg. "What's right is let people engage in a loving relationship and have that solemnized by the state."
Voters may get the chance to decide who is right in 2016.
