Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley is calling out opponents of Question 6, calling their tactics “deceptive.”

In a 45-second ad released Saturday by Marylanders for Marriage Equality, the group working to approve the ballot question which would uphold a gay marriage law approved by lawmakers, O'Malley makes a final pitch to voters.

“It's sad that the opponents of Question 6 are trying so hard to scare people with their misleading and deceptive tactics,” O'Malley said.

In the final days of the campaign, opponents have released ads claiming that the law would limit religious freedoms and harm children.

“But the truth is very simple. Question 6 treats everyone equally under the law, and fairly. It allows 2 adults to commit to someone they love. That's it. No one is forced to do anything. And there are strong religious freedom protections for people of all faiths.”

“That's why leaders we all trust who have Maryland's best interest at heart, like President Clinton and President Obama, Republicans like former Congresswoman Connie Morella and the Sun and the Post newspapers along with clergy from all faiths, strongly support Question 6.” (The video is embedded on this page.
