Gay marriage in Maryland
A judge has struck down Marylands ban on gay marriage. She had the good sense, however, to stay the effect of her ruling, pending an appeal.
The largest immediate impact of the decision will likely be political, as it will galvanize the Republican base and help Governor Robert Ehrlich (R) win reelection and perhaps even Michael Steele. While Republicans would like to put a constitutional amendment before the voters this fall, the Democrats who control the state legislature are unlikely to permit it.
Heres the opinion, along with other relevant information.
