STATEMENT: Derek McCoy, Chairman Maryland Marriage Alliance
MMA Releases New Ad Sharing the Threat to Religious Liberties and Individual Rights

The Maryland Marriage Alliance continues to urge Gallaudet officials to reinstate Dr. Angela McCaskill without concessions.  Gallaudet’s President T. Alan Hurwitz’s recent statement indicating that his decision to place Dr. McCaskill on administrative leave was “prudent” is offensive and a further attack on the democratic process.

Dr. McCaskill has done absolutely nothing wrong.  She has done what every Maryland voter has the right to do, engage in the democratic process.   Placing her on administrative leave was not prudent, fair or honorable.

Our alliance of diverse stakeholders across the state have warned Marylanders about the religious liberties and individual rights that are compromised if same-sex marriage is made law.

Homosexual activists continue to cry that individual and religious liberties are not at risk.  The suspension of Dr. McCaskill is proof of the disingenuous and untruthful nature of that argument.

Dr. McCaskill has worked on the campus of an American college for the deaf and hard of hearing for over 20 years.  If the marketplace of ideas and freedom of expression is not prized in that environment, how can we ever expect it to survive elsewhere if same-sex marriage activists prevail?

Today the Maryland Marriage Alliance will release a commercial telling Marylanders what homosexual activists do not tell them about question six.

The 30-second ad highlights the consequences and threats that Marylanders face when same-sex marriage becomes law.

To protect marriage and religious liberties, Marylanders must vote AGAINST question six.
