Ahead of Tuesday’s start of a federal court trial in Detroit involving a lesbian couple wanting to adopt each other's children, about 50 pastors gathered in a Baptist church today to speak out against gay marriage, saying it will undermine family and society.

Speaking at First Baptist World Changers Church in Detroit, the pastors said they represented a group of about 1,000 churches across the state that support the Michigan marriage amendment in 2004 that defines marriages as between one man and one woman. They’re concerned the trial set to start this week would undermine the 2004 law.
