Gay Marriage Bill Signed by Governor In Maryland
Maryland has become the eighth state to legalize same sex marriage.
Yesterday afternoon Governor Martin O’Malley signed the legislation which will go into effect next January.
But before that, opponents are expected to gather the 56-thousand signatures needed to put the law to a referendum on the November ballot to give voters the final decision.
Much of that opposition is expected to come from African American pastors and the Catholic Church.
