Same Sex Marriage Debate Continues

February 12th, 2012 by WCBC Radio

Arguments over procreation, civil rights, religious freedoms and protection of children punctuated a more than 10-hour long hearing on legalized gay marriage Friday.

Activists on both sides of the debate, including sitting lawmakers, offered personal accounts and legal arguments for members of the House Judiciary and Health and Government Operations Committee who heard testimony into the evening. The committees are considering legislation that could make Maryland the eighth state to legalize same sex unions.

Gov. Martin O'Malley says he wants lawmakers to pass a bill that would legalize gay marriage in order to provide children with stable homes.

O'Malley, flanked by clergy members, testified before the House Judiciary and Health and Government Operations Committees Friday afternoon.

    Having same sex marriages is NOT going to create stable homes…..having Faith in the God that created us and jobs, a community pulling together will stabilize the family for children!!!

    I know many persons who are in same sex relationships and even those who have gotten married in other states and are now divorced….with a child involved…. whats stable about that…..get back to the basics!!!

    Christians stand up for our God given life style! Not what is created by mankind….God destroyed cities for behaviors such as these….
