Let It Rip: Should Michigan's same-sex marriage ban be overturned?

Posted: Updated:
SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -

A lesbian couple is fighting to overturn Michigan's ban on same-sex marriages.  Voters approved the ban in 2004.

April Deboer and Jayne Rowse's lawsuit was sparked by their desire to adopt children together.  Soon a federal judge will hear arguments in the case.

Joining Huel Perkins and Charlie Langton on our panel to discuss are:

Dana Nessel, the attorney for Deboer and Rowse, who says the issue is a matter of equal rights.

And Gary Glenn, president of the American Family Association of Michigan.

Plus, Charlie Langton took "Let It Rip" on the road and asked people whether gay couples should be allowed to marry in Michigan.
