In casting their ballots for Question 6, what Maryland voters were actually doing was putting their stamp of approval on homosexuality.
Most gays and lesbians aren't interested in getting married. They do want to have same-sex relationships and not be called names for doing so. It will be interesting to see how many marriages occur in this group.
If there is no significant increase in same-sex unions, a terrible mistake was made. An institution that has kept the human race in existence since its beginning will have been irreversibly changed for nothing. Question 6 could have simply been for equal treatment of all regardless of sexual behavior.
