(Washington, DC) – Log Cabin Republicans statement on remarks by Maryland State Senate President Mike Miller calling marriage equality ‘an attack on families.’

“Democrat Maryland Senate President Mike Miller is trying to divert attention away from his anti-gay pandering by hiding behind certain conservative candidates, but the truth is he is badly out of step with Marylanders, including Republican State Senator Allan Kittleman, who voted in favor of marriage equality last year and continues to be a champion on this issue,” said R. Clarke Cooper, Executive Director of Log Cabin Republicans. “Between this and his attack on a transgender rights bill last session as also being ‘anti-family,’ it appears that Senator Miller has taken it upon himself to be the arbiter of what Maryland families deserve protecting. It is particularly frustrating to watch certain advocacy organizations, such as National Stonewall Democrats, let him get away with it again because of his partisan affiliation. Miller’s disrespect for LGBT Maryland families is backwards, and everyone should hold him accountable for it.”
