    Maybe instead of fighting Texas, they should be fighting Mass divorce requirements.
    Or they live in Texas, work there, have lives, and want a divorce in Texas just like the 50% of same sex couple do every year in that state. Honestly, it looks like Gov. good hair is gonna get a cold turkey and a lump of coal in his stocking really soon.

    Any one find it odd that liberal MA is stricter in its residency requirement for divorce than god fearing Texas?

    The status quo isn't a movement; it's a lack of movement.

    I think that Perry will serve out his term and then become president of a certain university.

    back up links:
    Texas and gay marriage: Will Texas’ refusal to grant divorces to same-sex couples be the next front in the marriage-equality wars? - Slate Magazine
    Inside The Next Big Battle For Gay Rights


    and BOOM!
    there you have it.
    Stuff like this is the beginning to the end of discrimination and denying equal rights.

    Me and many others called it when DOMA fell and then again when IRS granted equal rights no matter the state couples reside.

    National equal rights for gays is coming and many cases (hopefully just a few SSCs and one SCOTUS) like these are going to make it happen. These types or gross discrimination and equality violations along with state bannings are going to HELP establish equal rights for gays.

    In my opinion there's nothing right about what Texas is doing to these people and legally other similar cases have ruled its wrong also.

    Like i was saying, when DOMA fell me and others said thats the first step because cases like these and 1000s of others are going to establish equal rights.

    If a gay married couple lives in taxes and one of them is in the hospital does the other not get spousal visitation rights or spousal say in healthcare?
    Can one of them cheat and its ok?
    What if one dies, does texas take the stuff in the dead spouses name?
    Can one spouse be FORCED to testify against the other since texas doesnt see their marriage?
    etc etc etc etc and a 100 more examples that involve state, and local policies.

    There will be cases like these springing up more and more and they will have to be dealt with. Its great because its going to be poetic justice, all these discrimination and laws banning equal rights for gays are going to be the kindling for the fire to burn the whole bigoted and or discrimination wall down.

    Equal rights is going to get the last laugh!

    Bigotry and discrimination are already against the ropes, their wobbled, their stunned!

    Soon they will catch a left jab of equal rights and a right hook of justice, knocking their teeth out and sending them to the canvas down for the count!!!!
    They can haul their worthless butts to the same place that BS'ed into thinking their actually married.

    Any boy that don't like the way Texas does things can haul his liberal ass to Texas and discuss it with us face to face, if he ain't no Obama loving coward that is.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.

    lol
    1.) they are factually married, no changing that fact
    2.) not even sure where to began on this irrational, inane hyperbolic, failed, rant
    A.)nobody is scared of internet tough guys
    B.)these people already live in texas and have for years and they are talking face to face with who they have too already.
    c.) also as pointed out in the thread by other texans, they don't all agree with you, many agree while this is currently the law its appalling and they support equal rights and disagree with discrimination unlike you
    3.) more prove of your nonsensical rant, what does this have to do with anything? oh thats right, nothing

    next time read at lest the OP, i didnt think so many fails were possible in so few words, what you did was impressive


    thanks for the laugh though, very funny.

    It might be like what happened here about a year ago, we didn't think about the need for it till it actually became a problem.
