Christians do not hate gays; it's their lifestyle. Also, not everyone that was at Chick-fil-A, and I know many, that were not professing Christians. They just were not ready for this lifestyle and the same-sex marriage. So Chick-fil-A had the right to stand to voice their opinion once again, when they say no to same-sex marriage.” - Hagerstown “I do not practice medicine in the state of Maryland.

Maryland's second-highest court has ruled that a trio of journalists who overheard a police officer say he would have shot two robbery suspects must testify at the officer's disciplinary hearing. It's bad ruling that will make it harder for reporters to get at the truth. The decision by the Maryland Court of Special Appeals overturns a ruling by a Circuit Court judge in Prince George's County - a ruling which nullified subpoenas sent to reporters from The Washington Post, The Gazette Newspapers and the Prince George's Journal.
