Maryland Republicans are beginning to push back against the anti-LGBT sentiment within their own party. This week, three Republican lawmakers also announced support for the effort: State Senator Allan Kittleman and Delegates Bob Costa & Wade Kach. A reader also forwards us news of a Facebook group of Maryland Republicans for Marriage Equality:
About: Maryland Republicans who support same sex marriage - a human issue, not a partisan one.
Mission: We represent the growing number of Republicans who support marriage equality.
We are for getting government out of people's personal lives.
We believe that our party can be pro-family and pro-marriage without being pro-discrimination.
We believe that religious institutions should be protected from government interference.
We abide by Reagan's 11th commandment and believe in working with Republicans in supporting equality, not against them.
We are a grassroots organization are not funded or associated with any outside groups.
