It seems to me that there are a few myths about Question 6, which, if passed, will make same-sex marriage legal in Maryland.
Myth #1--"Non-LGBT-affirming churches will be forced to perform gay marriage ceremonies." I'm not sure where this came from, because the bill clearly says it will "protects clergy from having to perform any particular marriage ceremony in violation of their religious beliefs."
Myth #2--"It will change the definition of marriage." Well, may I remind you all that polygamy was a standard practice in the Old Testament? King David, anyone? And may I also remind you all that just
a few decades ago interracial marriage was illegal?
Myth #3--"Gays already have civil unions, so why marriage?" True, except that civil unions can't get federal benefits. According to FactCheck.org, "The Defense of Marriage Act passed in 1996 prohibits
same-sex couples from receiving federal marriage rights and benefits."
So as a Christian and a bisexual man, I urge everyone to vote yes on Question 6.
