AFA VS. MSU's DPs

by Jeremy Hooper

Saying the state's ban on gay marriage prohibits such offerings, the Michigan branch of the American Family Association recently filed a lawsuit against Michigan State University, in which they're seeking to squash the school's policy of extending domestic partner benefits to gay employees. Because, of course, contesting the school's policy of extending jobs to gay employees would be far too mean-spirited.

The AFA's lawsuit comes while gay activists are waiting for a higher court, the Court of Appeals, to rule in a case wherein twenty-two same-sex couples filed suit against the state, challenging Attorney General Mike Cox's opinion that the marriage ban does prevent such benefits being offered by public employers. We'll have to wait and see if thousands of Michigan gays will have just one more worry in terms of protecting their loved ones; however, we remain hopeful that this leg of the anti-gay's quest to f**k with homosexuals at every turn will ultimately end in dissolution. You know, just like 50% of heterosexual marriages are said to do.
