Response to Rosa Luxemburg (Original post)

Fri Feb 17, 2012, 07:24 PM

4. By more than expected.

Passed with 71 votes. There were concerns as early as this AM that it might fail by one vote, that of Sam Arora (D-19th), my idiot state rep. and craven homophobe, the same reason the bill failed last session by one vote.

I'm happy. This is the result of a lot of activists and delegates here, myself included, and they all deserve praise I'd like to personally note Del. Robert Costa, only GOP Delegate to support this bill getting to the assembly-floor and out of committee yesterday, even after his own party threatened him for supporting a bill to advance marriage-equality and even as it conflicted with his personal faith, as he felt that right-or-wrong on this issue was between people and their God and not the state of MD.

If we had more GOP legislators like Bob Costa who put law and fairness and conviction ahead of personal bias and partisanship, we'd be a lot better off as a nation and state. That said, I'm still going to work for his defeat unless he switches parties.
