To a crowd of about 50 church and community supporters, Del. Emmett C. Burns (D-10th) announced last week his formal opposition to Gov. Martin O’Malley’s decision to sponsor same-sex marriage legislation in 2012.
... Burns wanted to make it clear that “Maryland is not New York,” adding that O’Malley has been “gullible.”
In order to ensure that same-sex marriage does not regain its initial steam and become legal in Maryland, Burns advised his supporters and other community members to contact their local senators and delegates as well as to get minority churches involved.
“Ask members of churches to support their pastors in this opposition,” he said.
