A referendum is wrong and deserves no one's support. But that will or will not happen regardless of Arora or any other legislator's two cents.

So okay, let's do this thing. Grant Maryland's same-sex couples the equal freedoms they deserve, then let their neighbors decide if they really wish to take those away via a highly expensive, highly divisive, largely out-of-state-financed campaign that will inevitably lose in court anyway.
