Judge strikes down Maryland marraige ban

        Although tradition and societal values are important, they cannot be given so much weight that they alone will justify a discriminatory law.

      You can't put it much better than Judge Murdock in her ruling striking down the 33-year-old Maryland law against same-sex marriage. Of course, the state will appeal, so the battle isn't won yet, but what a great way to put it.

      That is one helluva comment. Why hasn't someone said it before?

      Well, numerous reasons really, but none of them any good.
