Marriage equality may become reality in Maryland

Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley (pic) announced his support for a marriage equality bill in Maryland. “At the end of the day, I think all of us need to look at this issue from the eyes of children of gay, committed couples and ask ourselves how one family could be protected less in the eyes of the law than another family,” O’Malley said at a news conference in Annapolis. “I don’t think that’s an injustice that can be allowed to stand.”O’Malley (D), a Catholic who supported civil unions earlier in his political career, said an equality bill would be “one of the handful of bills that will be an administration priority” in January.
