Gov. Martin O’Malley signed into law Thursday the bill legalizing same-sex marriage in Maryland.”The way forward is always found through greater respect for the equal rights of all,” said O’Malley. “If there is a thread that unites all of our work here together, it is the thread of human dignity….Let’s sign the bill.” Don’t expect to get hitched in Maryland anytime soon, the law won’t go into effect until 2013. It still faces some hurdles, mainly from conservative groups that are already collecting signatures to repeal the law come this November. [BH]
