In February, the Commission
on Social Action of Reform Ju-
daism sent letters to Michigan
congregations asking for sup-
port. The same month, Gov.
John Engler said "I believe a
Colorado-type amendment
would have a negative impact

the denial of civil rights to gays,
lesbians or bisexuals after Jan.

your job, being able to put a roof
over your head without fear of
losing either is something even
very traditional, very conserv-
ative individuals can under-
stand." ill
