O’Malley To Outline Plans For Gay Marriage Bill

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Gov. Martin O’Malley is scheduled to talk about his plans to push harder for same-sex marriage legislation in Maryland.

O’Malley, a Democrat, will hold a news conference on Friday afternoon to talk about how he will support legislation in the next regular session of the General Assembly in January.

The governor has said he has been looking at how New York approved legislation that included protections for religious
freedom.

Same-sex marriage legislation passed the Maryland Senate this year, but it stalled in the House of Delegates.

    O’TaxMe is worthless. He needs to work on getting us some damn jobs in this state instead of worrying about kowtowing to gays.

    Yea this is just something else we in Maryland have to force to go to referendum. OMalley will loose if it goes referendum just like he is going to loose The In State ILLEGAL ALIEN BILL he signed in law letting ILLEGALS get preferential treatment for breaking U.S Law. somebdy please explain the meaning to O’Malley of ILLEGAL. You would think O’Malley’s Wife a sitting Judge and her father retired States Attorney Joseph Curran could explain the meaning of ILLEGAL.

    Just if he would work as hard on creating a Job friendly environment instead of running them out of state as he has done. There is more worthy problems needed on the agenda what a waste of time and money!

    Why is it that Democrats ALWAYS have to go for the most divisive items they can find? Where in O’Malley’s campaign did he ever highlight this as one of our most “pressing” issues as a state? This is a total joke!

      Because democrats get most of their votes from special interest groups.

  4. Debbie says:

    His is working on this issue because he is interested in getting their votes. He is only interested in his own political aspitations.
    As everyone can see what he said while campaigning and what he did after elected bear little resemblence to each other. A fee is only a tax if Erlich does it.
    If he does it that all changes and boy is he doing it .

  5. Steven Cville says:

    I think Governor O’Malley has a lot of interest in this because his brother Paul O’Malley is a Gay.

    Any such bill should go to referendum for the voters of Maryland.

    JUST BECAUSE HIS BROTHER IS GAY,WHAT ABOUT THOSE WHO ARE NOT GAY,I HOPE GOV.OMALLEY DON’T PASS THAT LAW,THAT WHY OUR KIDS ARE LIKE THEY ARE BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO LIVE AROUND THIS UNCLEANNESS THE BIBLE SAID ITS AN SIN AND YOU’RE ALL GOING TO HELL.
