Martin O'Malley, who pushed for the law, said early Wednesday in a statement declaring victory.

Regarding your story about two Christian pastors who supported Maryland's same-sex marriage law, it is a real tragedy when men who profess to represent God to their constituents promote a measure that sanctions homosexuality ("Voices for marriage freedom," Nov. 11). The same Bible that Rev. Delman Coates holds in the photo accompanying the article states that homosexuality in both men and women is an abomination. Just because the law was approved by Maryland voters doesn't make it right.

Supporters of same-sex marriage launched their television campaign today with a pair of commercials that feature African-American pastors.  The ads are designed to counter an organized push by black churches to preach opposition to same-sex marriage from the pulpit this month. Both sides are wooing black voters this year; they made up about 25 percent of the electorate in 2008, and are expected to come out in similar numbers for this year's election. The Rev. Donte Hickman Sr. of Southern Baptist Church in Baltimore stars in one ad, and the other features Rev. Dr. Delman Coates of Mount Ennon Baptist Church in Prince George's County.
