A well-known Maryland tour company famous for its old-fashioned trolley rides will no longer be offering its wedding services starting in January because its owner opposes same-sex marriage and fears he might face discrimination claims for turning away gay couples, the Christian Post reports. "We're a Christian-owned company, and we just can't support gay marriages," said Matt Grubbs, owner of Discover Annapolis Tours. "We're not trying to make a statement. We're not trying to make a point. We're just trying to be faithful Christians," Grubbs said, adding that his attorney advised him to shut down wedding services to avoid discrimination lawsuits. According to the Baltimore Sun, Grubbs' decision means walking away from $50,000 in revenue in 2013, when new same-sex marriage legalization comes into effect in the state.
