We should work against same sex marriage.
It's unfortunate that the Democrats that we elect to represent us, get co-opted by the left-wing.
Here in Maryland, there is chicanery to advance the homosexual agenda. We need to stop it:
Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller Jr. (D-Calvert), who opposes gay marriage, said that chances of a bill passing his chamber are significantly greater in the coming session than ever before. Miller, who has a reputation for iron-clad control of his chamber, said he would vote against the legislation but work to cut off the expected filibuster
....Of the 11 senators who will be seated next month, six have either served as co-sponsors of such bills or said recently that they would support the measure. Six votes are needed to send the bill to the full chamber.
Two factors proved crucial in the changed calculus
With their gain in the Senate, Democrats were allotted an additional seat on the committee. And Sen. C. Anthony Muse (D-Prince George's), a minister who opposes gay marriage, requested reassignment to another committee for unrelated reasons.
Here are two Democrats who believe in traditional marriage, who are being coopted by the left wing in our party. Senator Muse can't be dumb. He must know that his reassignment to another committee is advancing the homosexual agenda. He should reverse course immediately, or get assurances that this pro gay legislation won't advance through that committee.
In addition, the majority leader can't have it both ways. Not with me. Not with the citizens of Maryland. You're either for us or against us.
There's is no right to a vote for any issue or any person. If you are against the redefinition of marriage, and I believe you when you say you are, then you must use all of your power to stop the left wing. I understand you may have cut deals to stay where you are, but at some point power is a means to an end, and not the end all.
I've never heard of an issue where someone was really against something, but allowed a vote because it was the right thing to do.
Mr. Miller should refuse to hold a vote. He should support the filibuster. That is how our system works everyday.
This is dissappointing and should be stopped.
In addition, as Democrats who support traditional marriage we need to introduce bills to actually support traditional marriage. Make it more special. More unique. More benefits. More responsibility. There are too many divorce and broken homes. We need to reinvigorate the value of "I do". We shouldn't let the extreme possibility of domestic violence or radical feminist notions of female "happiness" destroy an institution that is both good for women and society in general.
