The Catholic Church in Michigan just made an important concession toward gay couples  

For years, the Catholic Church has been in the throes of a heated debate over how accepting it should be of gay relationships.The church teaches that gay behavior is sinful; however, no institution is immune from changes in the world around it.The Michigan Catholic Conference — which oversees health care for Catholic employees in the state — announced in a letter last week that it is modifying its coverage in a way that will make it possible for gay employees of the church to get health benefits for their partners and spouses.It does so in a way, however, that doesn’t affirm gay marriage, but simply redefines who qualifies for health coverage in a way that could include same-sex couples.
