    Not for Texas I'm not. [ I already said I shouldn't have said all states because I don't know]

    The Texas Constitution charges the attorney general, the state's top lawyer, with defending state laws and the state’s constitution. The attorney general is also charged with representing the state in litigation that challenges state laws or in lawsuits against state agencies or state employees, according to the attorney general's office website.

    Lauren Bean, a spokeswoman for the attorney general's office, said the elected officer is obligated to defend the state and its laws and cannot “pick and choose” which ones he or she is willing to defend based on political views.

    "The AG is not empowered to second-guess the wisdom or policy implications of a duly enacted Texas law," Bean said.

    Bean said that the state's founders "did not envision a state where the AG could simply collude with a handful of litigants who might oppose a given state law and then unilaterally undo a statute that was duly enacted by the Legislature and signed by the Governor."

    Article II, Section 4, says that the President, Vice President, and "all civil Officers of the United States"—which includes judges—can be impeached. (See Article I, Section 5, Clause 2.) The same MO over and over again is being used to go against the wishes of state governments using federal activist judges. Judges that were appointed not elected. If we ever get a Congress with some Constitutional balls they need to clean house in the judiciary. The only glimmer of light of allowing them to continue for a period is with every time they legislate from the bench they are creating a record in which to hang themselves.

    States are sadly too slowly learning that in an era of activist liberal judges they would do well to create a domestic partnership civil union statute called "homarriage" that provides private enterprise and government recognition for this special type of union called "same-sex" union. Though we all know such a union isn't the legal statute domestic partnership civil union called marriage, marriage being between a man and a woman as husband and wife, if states don't give gays a recognition option, under an understandably different name, of course, like you don't wrongly call a show for cats a "dog" show but rightly a cat show, dimwitted activist liberal judges will rule that "the only recourse gays have to get the recognition they rightly deserve is under the "marriage" statute".

    Texas was too slow to learn this obvious but sad reality.

    Tick tock, states.
    You don't trust Trump? Well, there's only one way to leverage him to do what's economically right for us all: Powerful American Political Alliance. Got courage?! .. and a mere $5.00?

    2.) my motives are what the majority of americans motives are. I support equal rights and i care about me fellow american and want them to have the same rights that have
    3.) probably not because it seems you dont care about equal human, civil and legal rights but i dont know that for sure just seems that way for now
    im sure we will find out though lol
    4.) none of your religious rights are superseded by equal rights for gays this is pure fact if you disagree simply provide a factual example of your religious rights being superseded by equal rights for gays.
    5.) as am i, but like i said this law cant be disobeyed, i asked you how that is possible and you dodged it
    6.) yes thats good advice for you, it should comal down your emotions and rantings.

    1."Law"
    2. Really?
    3. I will obey the law. ( restatement for emphasis) I will obey the law.
    4. Well here's a good one: The Bible clearly states a man should not lay down with another man(or woman) so if I am forced to participate them I'll be forced to be party to a sin I'd rather not be forced to be involved in(while we're on the subject of rights). Now if you liberal guys could have God inspire a rewrite of the Bible I'm in.
    5. if the law read I can't refuse service to anyone due to my religious beliefs for any reason then your reasoning might have teeth. Since swords cut both ways how well would it go over at Slick Willees BBQ if the neo-nazis were throwing a party for the clan and the offended race could not decline the job, just saying.
    6. If I was 50yrs younger I might have.

    The position that anyone can demand service and the provider has no choice totally defeats one of the main reasons people go into business for themselves, independence.

    1.) law how? what court made it so
    2.) yep really those are my motives along with the majority of people but i amdit this is just a nice bonus out opinions, mine yours dont matter when it comes to equal rights
    3.) really is meaningless since this was a reply to if we are alike
    4.) i stopped reading as soon as you said the bible says, doesn't matter what the bible says because this is about equal rights and allowing equal rights has factually no impact on the bible or you ability to believe in said bible/religions ZERO

    if you disagree please give me a FACTUAL example of how it does i cant wait to read it

    5.)well you just proved that you dont know the law and how it works, first off we are talkign about marriage the law cant be disobey on that

    now you are deflecting to something else? fine by me because you are still factually wrong

    the law and rights apply to ALL OF US lmao

    so if discrimination takes place based on age disability, origin, race/color, gender, religion or sexual orientation in some places its ILLEGAL

    your example FAILS to provide ILLEGAL discrimination

    i dont know why this failed example keeps coming up but it has three times today must be in the misinformation handbook

    if the owner denied service to the KKK, the owners race doesnt matter by the way, there is no illegal discrimination because the KKK is NOT an age disability, origin, race/color, gender, religion or sexual orientation

    now if that state, county or municipality recognized the KKK as a religion and "Slick Willee" said im not serving you because i hate your RELIGION, then slick willie would have borken the law

    but if slick Willie just said im not making food for the KKK then there is ZERO laws broken.

    but thank you for this post it explains what your confusion is, you have no clue what the law and rights actually are, that clears up a lot about your posts

    6.) then find a pill to take because you might blow an o-ring out and thats not cool whether i agree with you or not
