I told you so

Idaho, was this what you wanted to happen with your hate amendment? Because this is what we get:

Public universities and governments can't provide health insurance to the partners of gay employees without violating the state constitution, the Michigan Court of Appeals ruled Friday.

A three-judge panel said a 2004 voter-approved ban on gay marriage also applies to same-sex domestic partner benefits.

So - forget attracting the professors who have same-sex or unmarried partners. We'd like to be a homo-hating, domestic violence-excusing backwater, thanks.
