A lot of people are going to make fun of this, but a great many will actually say it's a good thing:
In a ruling sure to make philandering spouses squirm, Michigan's second-highest court says that anyone involved in an extramarital fling can be prosecuted for first-degree criminal sexual conduct, a felony punishable by up to life in prison.
"We cannot help but question whether the Legislature actually intended the result we reach here today," Judge William Murphy wrote in November for a unanimous Court of Appeals panel, "but we are curtailed by the language of the statute from reaching any other conclusion."
There is one problem with the ruling that might not be readily apparent. Gay people can't get married, therefore they can't be guilty of adultery, so this law applies unequally. Just another case of keeping the straight man down.
