Maryland Clergy Speak Out In Favor Of Gay Marriage

State by state, we continue to progress toward full marriage equality.  If these religious leaders want to marry gay couples, isn't the government discriminating against their religious beliefs?  


Via The Advocate:


A group of Maryland clergy is speaking out in favor of marriage equality.

In a new video posted Wednesday afternoon by Marylanders for Marriage Equality, religious leaders argue that gay and lesbian couples deserve the same rights under the law as heterosexual couples.

“Marriage helps to build strong and stable families,” says Rev. Candy Holmes, “and we should be doing everything we can to encourage it.”

In addition to appearing in the video, The Washington Post reports that some clergy are expected to show their support for Gov. Martin O’Malley’s marriage bill by testifying on Friday, the same day that lawmakers will hear opposing testimony from those who want a constitutional amendment restricting marriage to one man and one woman.

Watch the video below.
