MassResistance Helps Advance Marriage Equality in Maryland

If you head over to MassResistance they're gloating that the marriage equality bill is stalled in committee, however, they're wrong, it was voted on by the Maryland Judiciary Committee and now advances to the full house most likely next week:
This afternoon, after careful consideration, the House Judiciary Committee voted 12-10 in favor of sending Senate Bill 116 – the Civil Marriage Protection Act – for consideration by the full House of Delegates. This is an exciting step that adds even more momentum behind marriage equality in the state of Maryland.
Yet MassResistance is still claiming victory for being "in the thick of it all" and they're spouting the lies they tried in Massachusetts which failed and it looks like it's going to fail in Maryland too because when you come right down to it, there are gay and lesbian Americans who deserve the same rights and responsibilities as their heterosexual counterparts.
