(Lansing-MPRN) A group of 20- and 30-something conservative activists is in Michigan to meet with state Republican leaders. The goal of Young Conservatives for Freedom to Marry wants the party to adopt a change in its platform at the Republican National Convention in the summer of 2016. It wants the GOP to drop its opposition to same-sex marriage.

A state House committee approved the bills as the US Supreme Court prepares to hear arguments on same-sex marriage.

A state House committee could vote Wednesday on bills to shield faith-based adoption agencies from having to serve LGBT couples if the US Supreme Court legalizes same-sex marriage. The bills would allow agencies that take money from the state for placing children with families to turn away same-sex couples.
