Cowardly Maryland House Politicans Choke And Yield To Threats. Will Allow Gay Marriage Bill To Die

After being bullied, harassed and threatened by anti-gay groups such as NOM, Family Research Council, and others.  The Democratically run Maryland House  (98-43) caved to bullying today and also to African American lawmakers from Prince George’s County, who cited religious opposition in their districts. So instead of doing what was right the Maryland House voted to effectively kill for this year a bill that would have allowed same-sex marriage in Maryland. .

Shame on you, Maryland delegates, for letting hate groups bully you and fold under pressure. And especially to the African American lawmakers from Prince George’s County who after they themselves suffered countless years of oppression, hate and bigotry have the absolute gall to pass it along to others in the name of “God”

Believe me when I say this it will come back to all of you  in the end.
