- The Washington Times - Tuesday, March 1, 2011

I am troubled by the tone of the article about same-sex marriage in Maryland (“Gay-marriage foes prepare for 2012,” Page 1, Tuesday.) It gives the strong impression that support for same-sex marriage in Maryland is building, which is not true.

In fact, Lou Chibbaro wrote in the Washington Blade on Feb. 26 that “officials with the statewide LGBT advocacy group Equality Maryland expressed concern that an expected vote on the bill in the House of Delegates within the next two weeks appears much closer than originally expected.”

I trust The Washington Times as an unbiased news source. However, Tuesday’s article seems to lend subtle support for same-sex marriage. If same-sex marriage proponents are reporting that the outcome of the bill is in doubt, your newspaper should include that information.
