Maryland legislators kill same-sex “marriage,” consider “bathroom bill”


Last Friday, legislators in the Maryland House of Delegates sent a bill back to the Judiciary Committee that would have legalized same-sex “marriage,” essentially killing it until at least next year. It became obvious to advocates for the bill that they would lose a vote, and the leadership decided to spare legislators a roll call vote. In an overwhelmingly Democratic Assembly, this is a victory of gigantic proportions.

Our friends at the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) worked tirelessly to activate people around the state to lobby their legislators against the bill, while Family Research Council provided expert testimony.

“The confidence of homosexual activists that they would be able to redefine marriage in Maryland was clearly misplaced,” said Peter Sprigg, Senior Fellow for Policy Studies at FRC. “The opposition to this bill—even from one of its former co-sponsors—reflects the groundswell of opposition expressed by the people of Maryland.”

Now, the leadership is piling on with a "Gender Identity Anti-Discrimination" bill (HB 235), which tries to blur the lines between males and females by creating special rights for cross-dressers. FRC ‘s Peter Sprigg was at the Maryland Capitol last week to testify against legislation that is similar to the "bathroom bills" that have cropped up in other parts of the country, including right here in Massachusetts.
