Observe the similar issue in Washington D.C., where the city council, and not the voters, declared the city’s support for gay marriage on civil rights grounds. Opponents argue that the city council has no power to make these decrees.
And... regarding the language here and in the Kennedy bill, just what does “sexual orientation” mean?
We must remember to append the residential districts in DC to Maryland next time we have power. If Maryland objects, take away their military bases!
