Video: Maryland Rallies for Marriage At the Statehouse!

 

TFP filmed this video of a massive gathering of pro-marriage supporters in Annapolis earlier this week.

One pastor says: "Never in human history has marriage been defined as two men. Never in human history has marriage been defined as two women. Who has the right to redefine it? [Crowd shouts: "No One!"] This is reckless social experimentation. Marriage is the fundamental cell of society. If you mess with marriage, you threaten the very future of humanity. We ask our government to do their job. Fix the problems we already have. Don't make new ones! Do your job!"

    The crowd shouts: New Hampshire! Vermont! Massachusetts! Connecticut! New York! Iowa! Washington!, and many more to come.... the people have the right to define it!

    Let the people vote,it is our right to determine how we will be governed and what the laws shall be. Protect marriage.

    What an amazing video! I'm so proud of my fellow Marylanders for standing up for marriage. That video almost made me jump up and scream. It was so invigorating!

    Why is it that when the lbgt crowd gathers the major news press is all over it but when NOM or RTL rally its kept hush hush? Could it be that there is an agenda there to support and promote the liberal progressive ideology? It sure looks like it.

    Can you imagine the momentum the Conservative movement would get if African Americans would defect from the DNC?

    Zack, that would be a dream come true. Lord hasten the day. Why Black people, who are rather conservative, remain locked in with Democrats, I don't know.

    Perhaps this will change in the near future. There's a budding Black Republican movement out there that is steadily gaining a bigger platform.

    I don't understand why the African Americans support the DNC. Abraham Lincoln was a Republican and set them free. He took us to war to help free them. A white, probably liberal actor who thought he would become famous for killing the man that free the slaves changed history.

    Let's unite and oppose those that want to change the family unit and attack our religious freedom. Democrat or Republican, vote for those that stand for family values and religious beliefs.

    Sadly not only blacks but also Latinos and Catholics have been loyal to the DNC. Remember I live in MA and continue to be amazed at the many Catholics and minorities in this state who are as passionate as the people in this video and yet vote for liberal Dems.

    John Emr,while some religious women support the evil of "gay rights",they need not be "evil" in themselves,nor are homosexuals...just misguided.
    David Duke supports Ron Paul,who doesn't mind SSM...he's not into praising blacks.

    As a Black man, I can say that well over the majority of Blacks opposes SSM. However, due to their residual anger over past ill-treatment of our people, many of them have fallen into the snare of the Democratic Party's lie that it is for Blacks and other minorities.

    Unfortunately, the Republican Party has given up on Blacks and will not fight for their vote. If the Republican Party would woo Blacks again, it would have the support of the Black community. My heart goes out to anyone that would support an organization that kills the unborn and approves of the perversion of homosexuality and SSM!

    Blacks and Hispanics tend to vote Democrat because that is the party that grants them government benefits and allows them to live off of the state. In other words, Democrats purchase their votes via welfare checks and other means.

    As the saying goes: Money Talks.

    If that were the case, then districts with a lot of people receiving welfare (most of whom are white, by the way) should have very high voter turnout. They don't. Guess again.
