Advocates for changing the definition of marriage, and those in favor of keeping the traditional one man-one woman definition, took turns testifying before the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee on Tuesday.

Religious leaders, family members, and children testified on both sides of the issue. Among those testifying in this podcast are Gov. Martin O’Malley. Some unexpected testimony came from a homosexual man, Doug Mainwaring, who is against changing the definition of marriage.
