Maryland legislator wants to silence NFL player on gay marriage ----------------------------------------------------------- What this proves is that the Democratic Party is a BIG TENT party without the single view Republicans complain about. What's funny is that everyone assumed this guy is a Republicans because his view matches theirs so closely. Wrong is saying this is worse than the Akin Amendment, which is the Republican Amendment that guarantees the right of a brutal rapist to be a "dad". That amendment is core to the Republican Party platform even though they deny it. Seems they can't find a single difference between what they believe and what Akin believes.
