Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley today issued this statement following President Obama’s announcement of support for marriage equality:
“Today, President Obama affirmed that for a people of many different faiths — a people who are committed to the principle of religious freedom — the way forward is always to be found through greater respect for the equal rights and human dignity of all.
“In Maryland, we agree.
“Ultimately, we all want the same thing for our children: to live in a loving, stable committed home protected equally under the law.”
O’Malley just signed his state’s gay marriage law in March, and is also the Chairman of the Democratic Governors Association.
