There may be a silver lining in the recent decision of the Michigan Supreme Court to erase domestic partnership benefits for same-sex couples under its new "Marriage Protection" constitutional amendment. Before it passed the folks of the Rightous Right told everyone in state wide ads and elsewhere that such benefits wouldn't be touched. Then after passage they flipped 180 degrees and argued the opposite in court.
That silver lining is that it's waking up people to the fact that such "bait and switch" tactics work. Gary Welsh writes about this in Advance Indiana, and I cover the same territory for Indiana Equality here. If and when a successor to SJR7 in Indiana comes back next year, don't say we didn't warn you.
