A group of religious leaders in Maryland have today launched the Maryland Marriage Alliance to push back on efforts to pass marriage equality in the 2012 session. Backed by the National Organization for Marriage and Maryland Catholic Conference and led by the Maryland Family Alliance’s Derek McCoy, the alliance rejects the inevitability of marriage equality passing, going so far as to say “Bring it on” to the fight. Their main targets are two Democratic districts where African-American legislators will be campaigning heavily for votes.
