Gay marriage is all but legalized in Maryland after the legislature gave its final OK Thursday to the law that's being sent to Gov. Martin O'Malley, who said he expects to sign it sometime this week.

The state Senate voted 25-22 for the law. The vote comes less than a week after the House of Delegates barely passed the measure.

Maryland will become the eighth state to allow gay marriage when O'Malley — who sponsored the bill

"This issue has taken a lot of energy, as well it should, and I'm very proud of the House of Delegates and also the Senate for resolving this issue on the side of human dignity, and I look forward to signing the bill," O'Malley said in a brief interview after the Senate vote.

Opponents, though, have vowed to bring the measure to referendum in November. They will need to gather at least 55,726 valid signatures of Maryland voters to put it on the ballot and can begin collecting names now that the bill has passed both chambers.

Some churches and clergy members have spoken out against the bill, saying it threatens religious freedoms and violates their tradition of defining marriage as between a man and a woman.

Hi Group,
So Both Washington & Maryland Get Gay Marriage, Guess the BAD News is that the Christian Right & the Bigots are Going to Force a Vote on the Matters, Guess the Matter is You CAN'T Allow Others to Vote on Basic Rights for Others Because the Voters Will Always Say NO.
If the Republicans Get In and Its Santorum If I'm Correct He Wants to Cancel All Gay Marriages and If He Has His Way, Gay Marriage WON'T B Permitted Any Where in the States, Never Mind Being Recognized etc.
No Bad Feelings but I Still Say Cum to Canada. Because at Least Your Allowed to Get Married With Dignity & Respect.
Tnx,
Operater.

well thats good news from the states, you should try and get the people at www.change.org and www.allout.org to help raise voters signitures in these states, by sending these groups an email.
Tommy, over here, the UK goverment has stated that religious groups do not have a mandate on marriage, and it is up to the goverment, and not religious bodies to make policy, so thats good news over here as well.
