Same-Sex Marriage Bill Falls Short in Maryland

Date: March 11, 2011
Author: Sabrina Tavernise
QUOTE: Lawmakers in Maryland on Friday failed to gather enough votes to pass a bill that would have allowed same-sex couples to marry, withdrawing it from consideration after hours of emotional debate and effectively killing the bill’s chances for passage this year... The National Organization for Marriage and the Family Research Council, both highlighted African-American and religious opponents of the bill as central to its defeat.
