Michigan, USA: Marriage Equality Supporters Have a Plan

Written by scott on June 23rd, 2013

MichiganMarriage equality activists in Michigan are gearing up for a petition drive to put the issue on the ballot. MLive reports:

Ah, but the times they are a changing, contends Emily Dievendorf, who is piecing together a 25-member coalition that aims to slap this back on the 2016 ballot. This time, she predicts it’s the church that will go down for the count… She contends there is a nationwide mood shift as more and more states legalize gay marriage and common folks discover the world did not end. She points to a complete flip-flop in Michigan with 58% of the votes now backing it… Ms. Dievendorf has set a cool $12 million budget to collect 600,000 names to place this on the ballot and prove to Mr. Glenn that he is wrong.

Yes, three years is a long time to wait – but how many more minds will have been changed by then?
