Oy vay! Karl, what are we going to do with you? Get your mind out of our bedrooms and stop perseverating on what we do there. Wrap your head around the fact that we are families, some of us with kids, some of us without. At it's core, this has nothing to do with sexuality as it does with the relationship in legal terms.

"The tyranny of majorities may be as bad as the tyranny of kings." -Arthur James Balfour. In this case the tyranny of the minority because a majority of the people in Maryland and in the United States believe same sex marriage should be allowed.

This bill will end state sanctioned discrimination. The united states governments began issuing marriage licenses was to prevent black men from marrying white women, and laws that prevent same sex couples from marrying does the same thing, discriminates against people and regulates homosexuals to a lesser status. I do not understand why in the 21st century we continue to allow bigots to influence laws that discriminate against anyone. Regardless off your religious beliefs I wish everyone would stop the hated, discrimination and disrespect that is spread because of this issue. It upsets me that people use my religion to justify the bigotry. As a Roman Catholic I have looked past the Bibles alleged demonetization of homosexuality. The hatred and foul words that have been said hurts me deeply, for Christians who are taught to promote compassion and helping their fellow men and women this is a sad state. I do not believe that Jesus would ever turn away someone because of their sexual orientation. And it is because of the hatred some people have towards homosexuals and others that are "different" is the reason that the state now needs to define marriage and protect those that are discriminated upon. I just hope that we can finally come together and accept each other for what we are. No one has to approve how people live their lives, just ensure they are equally protected under the law.
