A Maryland Marriage Alliance panelist is feeling the heat in the blogosphere after implying that members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community (and their allies) are "worthy of death."

First reported by Good As You blogger Jeremy Hooper, the panelist -- identified as Robert Anderson of Maryland's Colonial Baptist Church --.declares, "If we don't vote against it, then we approving these things that are worthy of death."

He then goes on to note, "Not only are they on the wrong side of history, but they will be on the wrong side of eternity."

As Hooper and Towleroad point out, the panel also includes Maryland Marriage Alliance head Derek McCoy, Austin Nimocks from the Alliance Defending Freedom and proclaimed 'ex-gay' Greg Quinlan.

The alliance is working to oppose Question 6, the ballot measure which would put Maryland's marriage equality law -- which was signed by Gov. Martin O' Malley in March -- into effect.
