Pastors rally in opposition to gay marriage ahead of federal court case in Detroit
By Jake Neher
A federal judge will hear arguments this week over whether Michigan's ban on same-sex marriage is constitutional. The trial begins Tuesday in Detroit.
Ahead of the arguments, dozens of Michigan pastors rallied in support of the ban Monday in Detroit.
"We're not standing here against anybody. We're standing here for the biblical principle and foundation of marriage," said Ellis L. Smith, founder of Jubilee City Church in Detroit.
