“Never underestimate the power of a few committed Christians! Just a few hours ago, the Maryland same-sex ‘marriage’ bill went from the verge of passage to crushing defeat. In an overwhelmingly Democratic Assembly, this is victory of gigantic proportions. Once again, it signals that even the most liberal states are not on board with the agenda to redefine marriage. FRC’s Peter Sprigg, who testified against the bill in both chambers, was instrumental in pointing out the harms of same-sex ‘marriage.’ As he said, the confidence of the homosexual community is clearly misplaced.
“The opposition to this legislation, even from one its former cosponsors, shows the groundswell of resistance that exists in Maryland and beyond. This is in no small part due to the effort of FRC allies, Bishop Harry Jackson and Derek McCoy, who took such a courageous stand. Our thanks go out to everyone in the state who worked against all odds to protect the sanctity of marriage. It does make a difference!” – Family Research Council head Tony Perkins, via press release.
