Maryland House Panel to Hear Marriage Equality Bill and One to Ban It Today; Marathon Session Expected

A marathon session on two opposing same-sex marriage bills is expected in the Maryland House today:

MarylandABC2 has learned not only will House delegates consider the same sex marriage bill, but they will also hear from opponents who are introducing a competing measure to do away with gay marriage. That bill seeks to create a constitutional amendment to define marriage as between a man and a woman. We've also learned religious leaders who support and oppose the issue testify at the hearing.

The hearing will begin at 1 PM in a joint session of the House Judiciary Committee and the House Health and Government Relations Committee.

It's expected to go on longer than last year's hearing which went on for 8 hours.

  2. So I guess all the rational people in this part of the country live in Maryland & DC--the nuts live in Virginia.

  3. No gay person in their right mind should choose to live in a law backward state like Virginia. Maryland & DC more sophisticated and just overall better period.

  4. In the name of full disclosure, I think it's important to acknowledge that we married gays are, in fact, committed to destroying Traditional Marriage and tearing asunder the very fabric of society. Moreover, we employ a variety of questionable tactics; we recruit children to our lifestyle, we have drug-riddled sex parties each night, and we lead a generally Godless existence. Oh, and we sacrifice small animals at the full moon and drink their blood too (but nothing that's endangered because we're huge fans of the job-killing EPA).
