Congressman Kildee urges state to drop same-sex marriage fight

DETROIT (WKZO) -- Flint Congressman Dan Kildee is calling on Governor Rick Snyder and Attorney General Bill Schuette to stop the defense of Michigan's ban on same-sex marriages

The Democrat tells the "Detroit Free Press" that those who are fighting the rights of gays and lesbians to marry are risking being "on the wrong side of history." Kildee compared it to segregationists fighting to keep blacks and whites apart in the 1950s and 1960s.

Kildee is launching a petition drive to urge Snyder and Schuette to drop the state's appeal of a federal judge's ruling that declared the state's ban on same-sex marriages unconstitutional.
