Diverse crowd gathers in Annapolis to support traditional marriage

Last night hundreds filled Lawyer’s Mall near the State House in support of marriage between a man and a woman.

The crowd included a large contingent of people representing the African American church, some Hispanics and then conservative Republicans and Tea Partiers all joining forces to oppose Martin O’Malley’s primary legislative initiative this year — a bill to legalize gay marriage that was defeated by a similar coalition last year.

The Governor’s wife, Katie O’Malley, came in for extra criticism after she called opponents from last year’s fight “cowards.”

Check out this good report, hear some of the speakers, at 9 News Now!

  1. I am pleased to hear of the good turnout. Now, how do we keep O’malley from attaching it to an appropriations bill that can not be petitioned against?

    • Hi Greg, wish I knew! Neil might have some ideas!
