issue, and that the church is taking a
stand on an issue that is very important
to us," he said.
But not all Catholics appreciated
Maida's video, which the archdiocese
told all of its churches to show on the
same Sunday two weeks ago. At Our
Lady of Refuge, a Catholic church in
Orchard Lake, Father Francis Dister
spoke out against anti-gay discrimina-
tion before showing the video.
"He went on in a really enlightened
way about his nephew, who is gay.... He
said the church does not need any more
homophobia, does not need any more
discrimination," said Elizabeth Ferszt,
a Catholic from West Bloomfield who
attended the service.
Soon after the start of the video, Ferszt,
who supports gay civil unions, thanked
The Michigan Daily - Friday, October 22, 2004 - 7
the priest and walked out of mass.
The church's support of Proposal 2,
Maluchnik said, is based on its com-
mitment to preserving the institution of
marriage. He dismissed the argument,
adopted by opponents of the proposed
amendment and by other church orga-
nizations including the Presbytery of
Detroit, that the proposal would take
away some health insurance and other
benefits for same-sex couples employed
by the state.
"The church does not believe that this
will take away benefits from anybody," he
said. "I don't think the word 'benefits' is in
But many disagree with that contention,
even within the Archdiocese of Detroit.
Bishop Thomas Gumbleton, the archdio-
cese's auxiliary bishop, said this week in
an interview with the gay-oriented maga-
zine Between the Lines that he is against
the proposal and the church's activities in
support of it.
"First of all, the law already says
that marriage is between a man and
a woman and I don't think we need
a constitutional amendment," the
magazine quoted Gumbleton as say-
ing. "Second, the text as I've seen
it is too open-ended, and people
who are living as partners would be
denied medical benefits. ... I think
it's a cruel overreaction against
homosexual people, and I think it's
Proposal 2 would amend the state con-
stitution to define marriage as between
"one man and one woman," and prohibit
the state from recognizing any other
arrangement "as a marriage or similar
union for any purpose."
Dana Hoole, spokesman for Coalition
for a Fair Michigan, said there is little dis-
agreement that the proposal would take
away benefits from some gay couples.

kjian, a co-organizer of the conference
and the director of the University's Aca-
demic Programs in Armenian Studies,
said many discussions will take place that
anyone interested in Armenian or Middle
East politics will find fascinating.
Members of the Armenian Studies
Program, one of the groups hosting the
conference, hope that it will facilitate a
discussion among powerful people who
will reflect on and perhaps examine the
mistakes in policy decisions made in the
1990s that led to bloody conflicts and
A civil wars is currently taking place in
Georgia, while Armenia and Azerbaijan
have long been engaged in conflict. Addi-
tionally, elections in Armenia have been
deemed unfair by analysts.
LSA sophomore Alex Sarkesian con-
siders himself 100 percent Armenian
although he was born in the United States,
and he said on a recent visit to the country
"I saw the graves of the people who have
died fighting in the conflicts."
"I am attending this conference because,
not only is it very important for students and
the community to become better informed
about what is going on, but this is an excit-
ing opportunity for change."
Participants in the panel discussions
include Terhi Hakala, Finland's ambas-
sador to Armenia; John Evans, the U.S.
ambassador to Armenia; and Prof. Hosse-
in Seifzadeh of Tehran University in Iran.
The conference also offers the oppor-
tunity for students to meet diplomats and
scholars and talk with the people whom
they have read about in textbooks. "This
will bring the politics of Armenia to life,"
Following Libaridian's speech was a
panel discussion titled "Evolving Inter-
national Relations and the South Cau-
caus." The panel included sociology Prof.
Michael Kennedy from the University of
Michigan, Vitaly Naumkin, the direc-
tor of the International Center for Stra-
tegic and Political Studies in Russia and
international relations Prof. Hadi Semati
from Tehran University.
Today's events include a panel discus-
sion titled "The World as Seen by the
South Caucasus," from 11 a.m. to 12:30
p.m., and one titled "The South Cauca-
sus As Seen by the Regional Powers;"
from 2 to 3:30 p.m. All sessions are
