Same Sex Marriage Bills

I stand strong in favor of traditional marriage between a man and a woman and do not believe it should be redefined.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to let me know your thoughts and concerns about the following bills, which are very important to me.  It is an honor to serve as your Delegate. 

I stand strong in favor of traditional marriage between a man and a woman and do not believe it should be redefined.  People have a right to live as they choose; they don’t have a right to redefine marriage for all of us.  Children of Maryland need a loving Mother and Father providing them as much balance as possible.   House Bill 438 would teach children one or the other parent is not necessary, is dispensable or un-important.  Children are confused enough with sexual messages, let’s not confuse them any further.   

This year two committees are being brought together in an attempt to avoid the possibility of the issue going to a referendum.  

HB 474 - Maryland Marriage Protection Act  
Scheduled Hearing on 2/10 at 1:00 p.m. (Judiciary)

HB 438 - Civil Marriage Protection Act – Crossfiled with Senate Bill 241 

I recognize the sensitivity of this issue, respect everyone’s opinion and am available to listen to your views.  However, I was elected to make tough decisions to uphold the Constitution and the rights of my Constituents and that is what I will do.  With many other issues like the budget, people out of work and struggling to meet their basic daily needs, our focus should be directed at those issues now.  

We will continue to monitor this process and update you.

I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do because I notice it always coincides with their own desires.

How do you feel about tattoos? Leviticus chapter 19, verse 28, which says: You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor tattoo any marks on you: I am the LORD. All people with tattoos are going to heII! The Lord said so!

So if two christians get married by the justice of the piece in city hall its not considered a marriage? I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do because I notice it always coincides with their own desires.

What you believe is not the problem. What you believe the rest of us should believe is the problem.

And when I think of religion I think of the Westboro Baptist Church picketing military funerals because they hate gays. "you think people want to listen to freaks like that or that there's any chance for a rational discussion with what seems more to me like terrorists-light? "
