Maryland Senate President Thomas V. “Mike” Miller and Bishop Harry Jackson are speaking out against a proposed gay marriage bill in the state.

Speaking Wednesday on the Marc Steiner Show, Miller reiterated his opposition to the measure.

“I don't want to sound like one of the Republican candidates for president, but I am what I am,” he said.

Miller, a Democrat, added that he would not block the bill from reaching the Senate floor, and added that the measure was likely to clear the chamber.

Jackson, a minister at the Hope Christian Church in Beltsville, Maryland who came to prominence fighting the District of Columbia's gay marriage law and last year's effort to pass a similar law in Maryland, appears to be preparing for a third round.

In an op-ed published Tuesday at, titled The Marriage Meltdown, Jackson argued that the trivialization of marriage by celebrities such as Kim Kardashian is another reason to oppose marriage equality.

And while speaking at a spiritual rally organized by the Family Research Council at D.C.'s Chevy Chase Baptist Church, Jackson linked marriage equality to “perversion,” “corruption,” and “pollution.”

“The power of the Queen of Heaven bring a malady over this region and has created perversion, pollution,” he said. “In the House of God, we declare that the Queen of Heaven has no authority over Maryland. Jesus is lord in Maryland.”

Gay marriage bills are also being considered in Washington state and New Jersey.
