Legal Moves Over Same Sex Marriage Debate

Posted: Updated:

(WLNS) - The Michigan Catholic Conference is filing a brief in Federal Court offering it's opinion on Michigan's same sex marriage.

The conference is filing an amicus brief on behalf of the state's catholic bishops but their effort is being joined by many other religious groups, including the National Association of Evangelicals.

The "Equality Michigan" group responded to the filing today saying they don't believe the argument supporting the bill will stand in court.

The group's director writes in a statement:

"Those who oppose this basic fundamental freedom---stand in the way of thousands of people of faith, gay and straight, who want this basic freedom for themselves and their loved ones."
