MD judge strikes queer nups ban; 'activist' claims expected within the hour

by Jeremy Hooper

   In a ruling on a 2004 lawsuit filed by the ACLU on behalf of 19 gay men and women, Maryland judge M. Brooke Murdock (pic.) today struck down a 1973 state law banning same-sex marriage. As per usual, the judge has stayed the ruling in anticipation of the state's likely appeal, but no matter how you slice the grooms/brides-topped wedding cake, this is yet another promising development for the homosexuals' quest to strut down a meticulously decorated aisle.

So far we've seen no response from local "pro-family" types, though look for clever "Homosexuals destroying the sanctity of marry land" headlines to hit gay-unfriendly waters by this evening.

Congrats Maryland gays!
