The Maryland Senate passed legislation Thursday night allowing same-sex marriage, setting the stage for a likely challenge to the law at the ballot box this November.
Twenty-five senators voted for the bill, with 22 voting against it. The legislation narrowly passed the House last week. Once Gov. Martin O’Malley (D), a key sponsor of the bill, signs the legislation, Maryland will become the eighth state with a same-sex marriage law.
Which means it’s time for me to do a little dance, grab some popcorn, tune in to Focus on the Family, and send Maryland a thank you note for all the blog content I’m about to get for the next few months.
Well met, Maryland. Equal rights ftw.
