Supporters of gay marriage in Michigan are moving their fight to voters, and asking faith leaders to get involved.

"Michigan for Marriage" will announce Thursday its intent to educate and deepen the marriage conversation, and showcase those who support it--including a few faith leaders.

This comes a day after state Attorney General Bill Schuette asked a federal appeals court to uphold Michigan's 2004 voter-approved ban on gay marriage. Schuette argues the ban should continue since it was approved by voters and a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision upheld a similar voter approved affirmative action ban.
