Stand in the Back of the Church: Gay Marquette man told he can't participate in Catholic Mass
Marquette resident Bobby Glenn Brown and his partner of 31 years, Don Roberts, celebrated their union in a
commitment ceremony on Saturday. The next day the priest at St. Michael's Parish, where Bobby worships, told him he'd no longer be able to read scripture or sing during mass, nor could he sit in a pew.
Bobby joined Public Radio 90's Nicole Walton to talk about what happened and how it's affected him.
