    Nothing wrong with agendas or perfectly legal behavior

    Thanks for making my point - the right wingers want to criminalize behavior that is legal and moral

    Why should we Texans have to be subjected to such? We LEGALLY voted against SSM and therefore SSD.

    And no I'm not sure it's legal for them to move here under that premise. It's on the same level as moving from a state where marijuana is legal to one where it's not and expecting there to be changes made in the law to conform to your habit.

    It's not going to happen.

    He just confirmed what I suspected.

    *I have 'zero' facts to support that yet you don't know what agenda I'm talking about? Get real.

    Because Texans, in spite of their stupid bigotries, do not get an exemption from the constitution


    And no I'm not sure it's legal for them to move here under that premise.
    Citizens are free to move wherever they want for any reason.

    It's on the same level as moving from a state where marijuana is legal to one where it's not and expecting there to be changes made in the law to conform to your habit.
    Expecting changes to laws is not illegal

    It's not going to happen.
    But it is going to happen

    Par for the course in your reply. Monotonous...same ol' stuff.

    Texans have an equal right to determine the laws of their own state.

    Reminds me of a sequence from the George Gershwin opera, Porgy and Bess; where Bess is seeking a divorce from Crown, so that she can pursue her relationship with Porgy. In the process, it is determine that she was never actually married to Crown, which is what makes the divorce such a challenge, and which the “lawyer” handling the matter uses as an excuse to boast about his expertise, because it takes much greater skill to bring a divorce into effect when there was no marriage.

    Really, that's what is happening here. Texas rightfully recognizes the fact that by definition, marriage is only between a man and a woman. These two are not married, and that is what makes getting a divorce so difficult. They don't need a divorce. They just need to sort out one person's stuff from another, move into separate homes, and be done with it.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.
