From the office of Sen. Nancy Jacobs:
I oppose legalizing Gay Marriage in Maryland and will fight vehemently against Governor O’Malley’s initiative to pass this legislation.
It is my belief that the majority of my constituents and the majority of Marylanders oppose legalizing gay marriage.
Government has historically defined marriage as an institution between a man and a woman and I believe it should remain that way. If gay couples want legal rights that traditional couples enjoy it can be granted civilly without legalizing gay marriage.
Traditional marriage is deeply rooted in the religious beliefs of many who believe this legislation threatens the institution of the traditional family.
Senator Nancy Jacobs
(R-Harford and Cecil Counties)
