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