Gay Marriage Group Launches Social Media Campaign

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland gay marriage advocates are circulating a graphic via social media that they say exposes their opponents’ strategies to overturn marriage laws.

The graphic released Thursday afternoon responds to news that a Maine court released confidential memos of the National Organization for Marriage. The memos outlined strategy to split the Democratic Party base by pitting blacks and Hispanics against gay rights groups.

Released by Marylanders for Marriage Equality, a coalition of groups supporting same-sex marriage, the ad suggests NOM’s strategy is to “drive a wedge between gays and blacks” while supporters of Maryland’s month-old gay marriage law want to “showcase love, commitment and strong families.”

Gay couples won’t be able to marry in Maryland until 2013 and the measure is expected to face a referendum on the November general election ballot.

    Ugh, just let this group get married. I am tired of the high gas prices and not being able to pay my morgage

    If you can’t put fuel in your car and you don’t have a place to live then what’s it all about anyway. Feed up with NOM and everything they touch.
