Michigan Governor Signs Bill Allowing State To Discriminate Against Gay Adoption

no title

You can add Michigan to the list of states we won't be visiting anytime soon.

Following Indiana and Arkansas' anti-gay laws that made headlines earlier in the year, we didn't think there would be any other states dumb enough to attempt passing more bigoted bills.

Well, we vastly underestimated how mean some politicians can be, because Gov. Rick Snyder of Michigan just signed a bill that allows adoption agencies to refuse to work with same-sex or unmarried couples if that happens to go against their religious views.

Because punishing people for trying to help a child definitely seems like the Christian thing to do.

Luckily, not everyone in the Great Lake State is as backward a person as good ole' Rick, because the ACLU has already stated they plan on finding a legal way to challenge the rule.

We just want to know how people who hate an entire demographic of their peers decide that being a leader is right for them?

Way to represent your state well, Rick!

Absolutely terrible!

As we reported last month, Joe Biden's son — Beau Biden — tragically passed away from brain cancer at the young age of 46.

One would think others would respect the Vice President's period of mourning.

Apparently, Ted Cruz did NOT get the memo.

On Wednesday at a GOP dinner in Howell, Michigan, the Republican Candidate made a poorly-timed dig at the Democratic politician.

"Vice President Joe Biden. You know the nice thing? You don't need a punch line… I promise you it works… The next party you're at, just walk up to someone and say, 'Vice President Joe Biden' and just close your mouth. They will crack up laughing."'

Afterwards, the 44-year-old was called out by a reporter for being insensitive, but the Calgary native walked away.

The video was made public on Twitter:

She said the person was wearing "a little bit of blush," but was also "huge" and appeared to Cormier as "very manly."

When she went to the front desk, they told her "whatever gender you feel you are, that's the locker room you're allowed to go in." Cormier said:

This is so terrible. Just so sad.

A 55-year-old woman, Christina Bond, died after she accidentally shot herself in the head.

The St. Joseph, Michigan woman was apparently adjusting a handgun she had in her bra holster when the gun went off.

Mark Clapp, director of the St. Joseph Public Safety Department, said:

"[Christina Bond was] having trouble adjusting her bra holster, couldn't get it to fit the way she wanted it to. She was looking down at it and accidentally discharged the weapon."

When officers responded to her home, they found her with a gunshot wound to the eye. She was taken to the hospital where she passed away.

When you're the daughter of a music icon, a real legend, it must feel like you've got some pretty big shoes to fill.

Luckily for Lourdes Leon, Madonna's daughter, she's doing a pretty good at making a name for herself!

Seriously, she's already got her own teen brand, Material Girl, which she launched while in high school. That's pretty dang impressive.

Now that Lourdes is almost 18 (her birthday is tomorrow!) and she's attending her mother's alma mater (University of Michigan) things are

Students Stand Up And Support Gay Former Catholic School Teacher Who Was Fired For 'Nontraditional' Pregnancy

students stand up and support former catholic school teacher who was fired for nontraditional pregnancy

Ugh!

We hate that this happened to this teacher, but we're SO glad to see all of the support she's received since!

Barb Webb was recently fired after working at an all girls Catholic school for the past nine years. She spent countless hours at Marian High School in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, but the former teacher - who is gay - believes she was let go because she is pregnant.

The timeline of the previous months would certainly prove that reasoning, since she told her bosses that she was pregnant in the middle of July, about a month after she first learned she was pregnant, and was subsequently fired in August.

Here's what she wrote on Facebook at the time:
