Group Pledges $1M In Md. Gay Marriage Debate

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The National Organization of Marriage is pledging $1 million to fight Maryland Republicans who support gay marriage and support Democrats who oppose the measure. 

The group plans to create NOM PAC Maryland and picked its first target: Sen. Allan Kittleman, R-Howard, the only Republican to vote in favor of the same-sex marriage in the Senate. 

The money — which is a large amount in a state where General Assembly races end up costing a couple hundred thousand dollars at most — hints at the looming national battle which is set descend on Maryland. 

Local gay marriage opponents have said they have begun coordinating with national groups to start a petition drive
necessary to put the issue on the ballot in 2012 if the gay marriage bill is signed into law.

    While we have the pedophilic Catholic Church continuing to prey and rape children, urban terrorists running baltimore, New Orleans, Philly and other states, this is what the Repuklican party brings us. Honestly, if you are a Repuklican you should be ashamed of this petty, ignorant social orchestration.

    But, then again, if you embrace the terrorist regime of george bush and condi, then you have no shame. I’m not letting those spineless Dumbocrats off the hook. They want to increase taxes while forcing us to pay for anchor babies and college tuition for those who are here ILLEGALLY…
    So, they are no better!!!! Can we run all of them out of town. seriously

  3. Wheres common sense when you need it says:

    Ok, really, 1 million dollars to reek havoc on a small minority of people, in infact Lynn brings up some good points. We have so many other issues that could us a million dollars. Children that are homeless, people whom can’t get a good meal, disease that needs research for a cure, etc,etc. How bout a million dollars to fight narrow minded people that prey on minorities. How bout a million dollars to fight organizations that force religous agendas on people that may or may not agree or care. For those people who feel they have the right to judge, go home tonite and take care YOUR family, mind YOUR business, and worry about who YOU are sleeping with. Maybe if we as a country started to take care of ourselves and our own problems and stopped minding eveyone elses, we could become a better nation, and God would like that better anyway.

    THERE IS STILL GOD FEARING PEOPLE OUT THERE. GOD BLESS THEM ALL!!!!

    1. Wheres common sense when you need it says:

      Its not God I am afraid of but the people who think they know what God wants. Everyone can read and quote the Bible with their own interpetation and then force it down everyones throat using legislation. Religous beliefs are important but they are also a choice made by one individual for themselve, NOT for everyone. God loves EVERYONE whether they are sinners or not so since you have no respect for others or yourselve, maybe you can respect that!

    its not any different that when women fought for equal rights and African Americans fought for equal rights… ITS ABOUT EQUAL RIGHTS people need to focus on that and not someones sexual preferences stop discriminating because you don’t agree with it ,what they do behind closed doors is there business just like your opinions that you want to push on the world are your own, this bill is about EQUAL RIGHTS and its about damn time too I for one will be supporting this bill if it does go to vote ANOTHER ONE DOWN IN THE HISTORY BOOKS FOR EQUAL RIGHTS
