Cindy Clardy, 63, of Southfield waves her rainbow flag and American Flag across the street from the Theodore Levin Federal Court in Detroit as the trial to overturn the ban on gay marriage continued Tuesday Mar. This time, the Bible was used to support same-sex marriage.In a ruling that boosted the gay marriage movement, a federal judge on Thursday said the state of Michigan must recognize the marriages of 300 same-sex couples who wed last year.state has likely violated the couples' due process and equal protection rights by refusing to recognize the marriages.
And it's also "irrelevant" whether the couples had a constitutional right to marry in the first place, he wrote, stating that once a marriage license has been validly issued, the state "cannot withdraw the status that it has awarded, even if the couples had no right to demand to be married in the first place."To rule otherwise, Goldsmith wrote, "could catastrophically undermine the stability that marriage seeks to create."For the plaintiffs, the ruling paves the way for them to begin getting all the perks that go along with marriage, but have been denied to them thus far, such as the right to adopt children together or share health benefits."Being legally married and receiving the benefits and protections of marriage are not, and cannot be, mutually exclusive," said the lead plaintiff, Glenna De Jong, who married her longtime partner, Marsha Caspar, last March. The plaintiffs at the center of the debate — two Hazel Park nurses — have taken their fight to the U. Supreme court following a bumpy ride through the courts, where they have been fighting to overturn Michigan's voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage. District Judge Bernard Friedman struck down that ban, clearing the way for same sex couples to get married. It later ruled in favor of the state, saying the issue of gay marriage should be decided by voters, not judges. Neither Snyder nor state Attorney General Bill Schuette would say on Thursday whether they plan to appeal Goldsmith's ruling.
