Maryland First Lady Katie O’Malley is passionate about gay marriage passing in the Maryland legislature. So passionate that while appearing before a gay group yesterday she called those who did not support the legislation last session “cowards.” This drew applause in the room, but today she is apologizing for the statement. O’Malley said today “I let my feelings get the better of me.” “I deeply respect that there are strongly held and differing views on marriage equality in Maryland, but hope that our state’s elected officials will come together to fairly address this important issue for our families and children.” The fact is there are differing opinions on this issue within the state. Different does not mean wrong or cowardly it means just that different, and that should be respected too. http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/maryland-first-lady-katie-omalley-blames-cowards-for-gay-marriage-failure-last-year/2012/01/26/gIQAUUk6TQ_story.html
