Referendum to Repeal Same-sex Marriage Law Will be on November Ballot
Certified by Board of Elections
Maryland’s Board of Elections today certified that the Maryland Marriage Alliance has succeeded in petitioning the new law redefining marriage to the November ballot and vastly exceeded the required number of signatures by nearly 100,000.
This successful result, coupled with the recent AP poll showing more people remain opposed to gay marriage than support it, are indications of the true attitudes of Americans and Marylanders.
While prominent politicians, deep-pocket donors and Hollywood stars try to influence Marylanders into believing that they aren’t “progressive” enough, the average citizen of Maryland has enough common sense to know that marriage cannot be redefined; that a child comes from both a mother and a father; that marriage is the building block of society; and that it is not discriminatory to reserve marriage for one man and one woman.
