Gay Marriage Comes to Maryland

Gay rights supporters are thrilled at the Maryland State Senate's vote to legalize same-sex marriage, which passed 25-22 last night.

The bill will definitely get signed into law by Gov. Martin O'Malley, since he's a vocal supporter. Gay couples can start tying the knot in January 2013. But in the meantime, Maryland Republicans are promising a fight to overturn the bill via a state-wide referendum, along the lines of California's Proposition 8.

Maryland will be the eighth US state to legalize gay marriage, and the second to do so in 2012, following on from Washington.

Weigh in: the US on the road to nationally legal gay marriage?

Jesus had two fathers and he turned out quite well.

I assume you're being a smart ass with your comment. I know many straight couples who cannot have children; perhaps they should not have been allowed to have gotten married.

And I assume that you'd rather see orphans and neglected kids continue to be neglected and endure a sad quality of life than to be given a home and family where they are loved and nurtured.

This is why America is going downhill, because of fuck-ups like you.

What's worse, a fuck-up like me, or a couple of homo men who are doing things to each other than used to be considered sick, sick, sick? The female is God's greatest creation, why would a man be attracted to another man, when the woman of the species is so much more attractive?

That question is something we may not understand, because we're straight - this is just who they are. They didn't ask to be like this - for them, being gay is as normal to them as it is for us to be straight. It's not for me to judge. God does that. And the God I know is not an angry God.

Just my opinion IG.

If, as you say, God is against gay marriage, then why did He create gay people, knowing that they will want to be with each other? Because as anybody with any chruch background knows that God knows all and sees all.

How can God create something that is an abomination in His eyes, that doesn't even make sense.

That would be like me saying "I hate carrot cake, but I'm going to make it anyway."

That's exactly what thousands of us have already done, and millions more are waiting to do the same once marriage equality comes to their state.

Judging from your picture I can see why you'd think that. Trust me, there are a LOT of gorgeous men out there. Just be patient, you'll find the man of your dreams eventually.

Your bible is just another fairytale, and therefor irrelevant to civil marriage laws.

You should worry more about your own state of Washington, since every poll there shows a majority will support the marriage equality bill IF the anti-gays manage to get it on the ballot.

Remember this time you don't get to hide the names of those bigots who sign the petition, so it will be public knowledge. Any shenanigans like what happened with Ref 71 in '09 will be challenged in court this time. You only got 1,430 signatures more than the minimum needed, and now that those names are finally public knowledge we're finding out thousands of people never actually signed the petition, but just had their names added to the list from voter roles. THAT crap won't be happening this time around.

First, I support the right of people in this lifestyle to marry as an American. We all have the right to pursue happiness, whatever that may be. However, do not disparage and put down the rights of others to believe as their conscience dictates.

And the Bible is most definitely not a fairytale.

Hollywood, the media, politicians telling the truth...these are fairytales.
