maryland governors signs marriage equality bill into law

We are SO proud of MARRY-LAND!!!!!!

Last week, we were THRILLED to announce that Maryland passed their marriage equality bill!

At the time, Governor Martin O'Malley had assured everyone that he would definitely be signing the bill into law!

Today, Gov. O'Malley made good on his promise and he signed the bill into law, which will take effect in January 2013.

Here's what he said about it before giving his signature:

"Religious freedom was the very reason for our state's founding and at the heart of religious freedom is the freedom of individual conscience."

We couldn't agree more! Thank you, Governor O'Malley!!!!!

EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL!!!! We're on our way!!!!!!!!!!!

    FINALLY….yet another intelligent state that views gays as people who deserve equal rights! As it should be…..let's keep adding more states and stop the ignorance.

    Good job Maryland!

    It still astonishes me that this issue is an issue. That politicians will actually argue FOR discrimination is mind blowing. Does it make it ok if you hide behind the bible? Good for Maryland. It is about time.

    I'm happy that this has gone through. Finally the politicians of the People's Republic of Maryland did something the people wanted & not what the greedy politicians wanted. Wish I could say the same about the other stupid laws or tax increases they've imposed…

    PerezHilton- always 12 hours late on political news. PLEASE STICK TO CELEBRITY GOSSIP!!! for the love of God!!!!

    Suprised that this wasn't posted earlier. This is probably one of the few southern states that will legalize gay marriage though.

    Religious freedom? Bah!
    -
    Tell that fairy tale to the Catholics, as the Obama Progressives cynically pretend they have moral relevance, while Obama forces them to "eat it".
    -
    Guess the Catholics are learning the hard way, there are no moderates in the Democrat Party. They'll all still vote for Obama so he can finish his vision.
    -
    They all jumped off the cliff a long time ago with Ted Kennedy into hell.

    I'm from Maryland. I personally love O'Malley, he came and toured my school once and came off as really great, and I totally support gay marriage and I'm especially proud because we're the first east-cost state south of the Mason-Dixon line to legalize it! If we're being honest, O'Malley probably mostly did it (at least as hastily as he did) because he's planning on running for president in 2016 (or so the MD rumor mill says), and signing the bill will look good on a resume… I'm totally voting for him though.

    Re: luvs2hustle – When will Obama (that piece of shit) jump off a cliff? Speaking of pieces of shit Mr. Malley can jump off the bridge with Obama.This is just one of the reasons that America is going downhill! Come on Maryland residents with values repeal this law.. this goes to the other states that have legalized marriage between 2 people who choose to like the same sex. You weren't born this way, you choose to live this lifestyle and you will eventually pay for it.

    @ Veruca Salt; Maryland is not a southern state. It wasn't even part of the confederacy.

    Re: Gay Republican – Not you dumbass Republicans again. Maryland by definition is a SOUTHERN STATE, even according to our government. Look at a census map bitch.

    maybe he should sign a bill giving therapy with the homosexual sickness instead

    I am soooooo excited now. I want to marry my cat. Maybe if I form groups and call be anti -cat, and hate mongers and cause rallies, I can get this legalized too. The sanctity of marriage is over. It should be seen on paper as a man and a women. HOWEVER, that does not mean gays cannot marry, as common unions.

    Re: manymoms – Great reasoning asshole. If you can find a cat that can give verbal and written consent of its own free will, marry it, you'll be loaded.
