Posted on 10/20/2012 11:49:07 AM PDT by what's up
Maryland voters are poised to approve same-sex marriage at the ballot box next month, a potential watershed moment in the history of a right that has been granted by courts and state legislatures but never by a popular vote, a new Washington Post poll has found.
Maryland voters favor upholding the states gay marriage law by a nine-point margin, according to the poll, which could end a streak of defeats in more than 30 states and provide further evidence of the countrys evolution on the controversial topic. Recent surveys have also shown leads in Maine and Washington state, where voters will be presented with the same issue Nov. 6.

However, I seem to recall the polls on other past referendums seemed to be ahead also before going down to defeat.
Other gay marriage referendums this year will be held in Maine and Washington State. This article claims the gays are winning the issue there too but I suspect by not much or they would have published the numbers.
The WashCompost is drooling over MD voters possible embrace of the destruction of the family and traditional values!
They are evil - and you shall know the MSM by its rotten fruits.
Minnesota is also voting on Nov. 6th, on a state constitutional amendment to define marriage.
So, that will be interesting to see on election night. Four blue states, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, and Washington, all voting on how marriage will be defined.
They said the same thing in California.
Guess what happened...
I applaud that they are at least going through the legislature and a people referendum to resolve the question.
Maryland is a “very blue” state, politically, so this isn’t a surprise.
I don’t see all those Ball’mer Eric Holder’s people voting for it. And multiple times, at that, just like Moochelle dog-whistled them to do.
Lord Baltimore must be turning over in his grave.
The left is going nuts trying to destabalize civilization itself.
They are forcing all the Maryland little boys to embrace sodomy by this move-—which will reduce women to breeders and institute the culture of Afghanistan—where sex is for recreation between males and boys and women are just for creating more little pretty boys and can be mutilated and enslaved or sodomized like the boys.
This is regression back to pagan Greece and Rome culture and hedonism where children are conditioned into pederasty and unnatural sexual acts to kill the concept of God—Justice and Truth.
It is extremely sick and dangerous—as Freud stated—to strip sex of all morality-—which is what sodomy does. Breeds chaos and evil. There is no Truth when you teach children that such a dehumanizing act is “good”. Good and Evil is being flipped—from Christian Ethics to the Ancient practices of all cultures. it is Satanic and evil.
Sodomy is vice-—no Just government can embrace evil and be Just. This “law” will be evil and null and void in a country built on Rule of Law—Justice (a virtue).
It is child abuse to destroy the natural family unit and make it into such an artificial, mockery —such vile units which have no connection to reality-— which are beyond silly and irrational and evil. No Logic and Reason with sodomites. They are irrational and evil.
What is actually at issue, here, is the ongoing effort by Leftist groups to dismantle our cultural heritage, to destroy the multi-generational pursuits of American families. This needs to be addressed as the abomination that it is--as is every effort to force a free people to accept what is not true, to satisfy the irrational demands of those who want to force a uniformity of thought & condition on all Mankind.
For a perspective on what is happening to American culture: Losing America's Multi-Generational Purpose.
Hispanics and blacks saved us there. I expect to see the exact same article in 10 years pertaining to support for bestiality. Disgusting.
“Historic”! It’s “historic” I tell ya! Geeesh. These morons need to lighten up. Flaunting their hatred of religion (and that’s all this is) is very unbecoming and idiotic.
VOTE NO on 74!!!
Correct. I continue to hold out hope.
Also, I suspect in MD there are a good number of good, black, Christian pastors who will be urging their parishioners to not be reliable Dem pro-gay voters.
I for one, will be praying along with these good men.
I would not want to be selling earthquake, flood, fire or tidal wave insurance in Maryland.
Thank you for that info.
I am hoping/praying that Jeff Bezos' $2.5 M effort goes down in flames.
At some point, the Catholic Church will have to stop performing “legal” marriages. A Catholic couple will have to have two ceremonies - a sacramental one at the church, and a legal one at the county tax office.
Many devout Catholics may simply decline to be “legally” married and only receive the sacrament.
They can vote yes for gay perv so-called marriage all they want. They will never supplant God’s absolute truth. They choose hell and it will surely be their reward. What a rude awakening that will be... scares me to no end thinking that so many people will choose it too. Choose God and Christ-— this life is fleeting and temporary.
So will I...
This is from the Washington Post and they lie.
I haven’t spoken to one friend who will vote to allow Homo’s to marry in this State.
They must have taken the poll in the Governors Mansion and the State Senate where fags rule.
State is 1/4 black. Many in the black community do not support gay marriage. Not so fast Wash Post.
The article speaks of what I have heard of the "Bradley Effect". It states that people may poll 9% differently than how they vote in the polling booth on social issues due to "stigma". This may be occurring with these referendums.
If so, the MD, Maine, and MN measures are actually teetering right on the edge.
The WA gay marriage measure, however, still polls 6% in favor of the referendum passing.
Gay “marriage” will be defeated at the polls.
We are entering dark times.
It's time to get this ball rolling, boy and girls. Or we'll have legalized buggery in all 57 states before you can say "Jack Pervertson."
“So, that will be interesting to see on election night. Four blue states, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, and Washington, all voting on how marriage will be defined.”
I would reckon that the gays are going to win in at least two of these states, probably Maryland and Minnesota...
