The battle between the people of Maryland and the state
legislature over homosexual "marriage" will be decided in just over
a month, and both sides are pressing hard.
Governor Martin O'Malley (D) signed into law
a same-sex "marriage" measure approved by lawmakers,
which will go into effect January 1, unless voters vote "no"
on Question 6. Derek McCoy of the Maryland Marriage Alliance tells
OneNewsNow the outcome should be considered a final
"This is our moment," he declares. "We
do not have another moment to think about this or wait on this.
This is the moment in Maryland that the voters have to be engaged.
We need voters to step up to the plate, do everything they can do
to make sure that their grandmothers, their aunts, their cousins,
their uncles, their brothers, their sisters all know about this
issue and that they all are going to the polls on this issue."
Proponents of the language are working hard and spending a lot
of money to convince voters to let the law go into effect. So,
McCoy says their volunteers have to work that much harder.
"We can't afford to sit at home," he says. "We've got to make
sure this is done, because marriage is at stake in our state. And
as long as we do our job, we will prevail, and victory will be
ours. But, we are going to have to make sure everybody gets out to
vote on this issue, and I can't say that enough. But it is going to
be a tight race, and this is a crucial time for us."
The Maryland Marriage Alliance spokesman concludes that a
tiny minority is trying to force a complete redefinition of
marriage on the majority.
