Thomas More Law Center Applauds Michigan Supreme Court’s Protection of Traditional Marriage

From the Thomas More Law Center:

Wednesday, May 7, 2008

ARBOR, MI –The Michigan Supreme Court ruled today that the constitutional amendment banning same same-sex marriages blocks Michigan governments and state universities from offering “domestic partnership” benefits to homosexual couples.

The Thomas More Law Center, a national Christian public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, played a significant role in drafting the language of the constitutional amendment. Michigan citizens voted overwhelmingly in 2004 to adopt a state constitutional ban on same-sex marriage, by nearly 60%. Today’s 5-2 decision affirms a Michigan Court of Appeals ruling.

Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Law Center, commented, “The Michigan Supreme Court courageously upheld the will of the people.”

Michigan’s constitutional amendment, considered the broadest of the 11 state amendments, provides that “…the union of one man and one woman in marriage shall be the only agreement recognized as a marriage or similar union for any purpose.” The amendment is intended to prohibit courts or other efforts to impose same-sex marriage, polygamy, or any other form of counterfeit “marriage” on the state.

The Thomas More Law Center defends and promotes the religious freedom of Christians, time-honored family values, and the sanctity of human life through litigation, education, and related activities. It does not charge for its services. The Law Center is supported by contributions from individuals, corporations and foundations, and is recognized by the IRS as a section 501(c)(3) organization.
