Police Listed Gay Rights Group Among Terrorists
Lisa Rein

Equality Maryland, the state's largest gay rights group, was among the peaceful protest groups to be classified as terrorists in a Maryland State Police database.

The group was designated a "security threat" by the Homeland Security and Intelligence Division, which also kept dossiers on dozens of activists and at least a dozen groups. Police kept files on Equality Maryland's plans to hold rallies outside the State House in Annapolis to press for legislation reversing the state's ban on same-sex marriage. They plan to purge the files.

:wtf:

I've been searching and I can find no history of violence for this group. Can anyone fill me in on just why they were classified as terrorists?
