Dear Friends of Marriage,

(WASHINGTON, DC) - Brian Brown, Executive Director of the National Organization for Marriage issued the following statement in response to Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler's decision yesterday to recognize same-sex marriages from other states:

"Maryland's statutory law clearly states that 'Only a marriage between a man and a woman is valid' in Maryland. The Maryland Supreme Court upheld the law and stated clearly it was the province of the legislature to change it. What part of the law doesn't the Attorney General understand? What other laws is he unwilling to enforce? This is an outrageous example of running roughshod over the rights of the people of Maryland in pursuit of a private political agenda," said Brian Brown.
