On Friday, a federal judge ruled the 10-year-old ban on gay marriage unconstitutional. This time, it appears the judge ruled that it violated the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution (which I believe has always been the strongest arguement).
Yeah for the residents of Michigan.
The AG of Michigan, Bill Schuette, has already filed an “emergency” request for stay and appeal of the ruling. The article does not mention his political party affiliation (anyone for a wild guess)?
Note: Apologies to “Fun with Flags” aficionados for not showing the Michigan Flag, but it is really boring, IMHO.
