Is MD Governor O’Malley going to sink marriage equality?

It sure is looking that way.  Apparently, he’s found a shinier penny than our civil rights – gambling.  And now he’s gambling with our civil rights.  We’ll be sure to remember when he tries to run for President in 2016.

More generally, again we’re dealing with the problem that others have raised before – when you turn out the black vote you’re also turning out the anti-gay vote.  It’s a real problem.  And it’s the religious right’s dream, creating a divide between the gay and black communities.  It’s going to be Governor O’Malley’s nightmare if he creates the perfect storm to take away our civil rights in November.
