I Support MD Attorney General Gansler's Opinion on Out-of-State Marriage Recognition

435 Signatures Goal: 500



We, the undersigned, support Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler's official opinion recognizing out-of-state same-sex marriage recognition

We believe, as the Baltimore Sun points out, that this opinion advances the cause of civil marriage rights in Maryland, as the state now must recognize same-sex marriages from other states.

We further believe that this decision is not only a huge victory for the gay and lesbian community of Maryland, but also for the principles of equality, justice and fairness for all.

We commit ourselves to fighting any attempt by Delegate Don Dwyer or his extremist colleagues to roll back our recent gains.

We urge state agencies to review their practices and procedures in order to comply with state law by providing equal protections for couples with valid marriage licenses.

Only civil marriage equality here at home and an end to discrimination at the federal level will provide true equality for all LGBT couples.

We are committed to working with state agencies, as well as to advancing full marriage equality in the Free State.
