I don’t know how Christian groups in Maryland can complain that legalizing gay marriage would violate their religious freedom when the proposed Marriage Equality ballot measure reads like this:
Establishes that Maryland’s civil marriage laws allow gay and lesbian couples to obtain a civil marriage license, provided they are not otherwise prohibited from marrying; protects clergy from having to perform any particular marriage ceremony in violation of their religious beliefs; affirms that each religious faith has exclusive control over its own theological doctrine regarding who may marry within that faith; and provides that religious organizations and certain related entities are not required to provide goods, services, or benefits to an individual related to the celebration or promotion of marriage in violation of their religious beliefs.
Like I said, I don’t know how they could complain… but I’m sure they’ll find a way.
