    No, it was a matter of your equating te gayz with pedos that reminded me of that video, but are you actually serious? Do you not know the difference between pedophilia and homosexuality? Was that priest comment a joke?

    I hope 80% is correct, and not 40%, this would be cause for concern....grave concern.
    Not every Texan agrees with their platform. Remember Ann Richards one of the greatest Governors out of all the States.

    Would it even be Constitutional for them to make it a felony for someone to perform a wedding ceremony for a gay couple? I would think that a law like that would definitely violate freedom of religion, not to mention freedom of expression.

    If it is a civil servant issuing a license from the State I think they can do it.

    From what I read, they aren't talking about just issuing licenses. They actually state both, issuing the license and performing the ceremony as trying to make felonies.

    Yet another bunch of republicans that need to learn to keep their religion to themselves.

    So much for Republicans wanting to get government out of our lives and letting us do what we want with our money.

    There's ONE difference between Republicans and Democrats.

    Republicans pretend they have different beliefs.

    So in other words, they want to ban religious practices that the State disagrees with. I guess this means they can't bitch about "religious discrimination" anymore.
