Doug Allen of Vancouver, British Columbia, said Thursday that gays who engage in homosexual acts are bound for hell unless they repent.

Testimony has ended in a trial over Michigan's ban on gay marriage after a Canadian economist made unflattering remarks about homosexuals.
Doug Allen of Vancouver, British Columbia, said Thursday that gays who engage in homosexual acts are bound for hell unless they repent. His comment came during cross-examination Thursday in Detroit federal court.
Allen is a witness for the state of Michigan, which is defending a 2004 state constitutional amendment that bans gay marriage. Judge Bernard Friedman will hear closing arguments Friday.
Allen says the ban should remain in place. He says society is "a long way" from fully understanding how well children grow up with same-sex parents.
Two Detroit-area women are challenging the ban, saying it violates their rights under the U.S. Constitution.
