As to the commentary by Michael J. McManus ("Gay marriage seals Obama's fate," May 17), I am still surprised that some in the black community are against equal marriage rights for gays. It wasn't so long ago that black people didn't have any rights in this country and how soon they forget.
I predict that Maryland will vote on favor of gay marriage, much to Mr. McManus' disappointment.
And same-sex marriage is as good as traditional marriage. When two people love each other, it doesn't matter who they are.
I make another prediction that should disappoint Mr. McManus: President Barack Obama will be reelected. The Republican party is in too much in disarray for the result to be otherwise.
