    Really, this thread SHOULD have ended at:
    "The GOP supports legislating what can or cannot go on in our bedrooms."

    Pfftt no kidding. I love the way the GOP likes to champion less government... except when it's something they disagree with on religious grounds

    Or anything related to law enforcement. Sometimes I swear a cop could shoot an unarmed child in the face and the far-right would still defend them. Or a law could pass allowing the government to set up hovering camera that follows you 24/7 and they'd respond "Well if you do nothing wrong you have nothing to hide!"

    BUT only if it's THEIR guy that implements it. If a Conservative says it's ok... well then it's ok for them too...

    And that's not all conservatives lets get the record straight.

    I don't really see the point of this legislation. If gay marriage is not legal, then a license cannot be granted, which means it cannot be performed anyway. How does making it a felony really change anything?

    Because it gives Neo-Cons the satisfaction of locking up the "filthy faggots that are ruining this great nation"

    Something like that maybe?

    Ah Texas...

    Texas needs to learn that there is no such thing as a state religion. It's time for those Texas GOP douchebags who cannot accept this fact to be removed from office.

    Yeah, I've always thought it weird how the "small government" party wants the government to impose a particular set of moral beliefs onto people.

    Technically, the couple can still have a ceremony without a license. In fact, making it against the law to have a wedding ceremony or to officiate over a wedding ceremony without the license could be unconstitutional. The government can legally deny people legal recognition of a marriage, but it cannot tell a couple or even an officiant that they can't have a wedding ceremony, because that is a violation of freedom of religion and privacy laws (and probably other parts of the Constitution) so long as the couple is not breaking other laws during the ceremony (i.e. harming/killing animals/people, being nude in public, having sex with minors/animals, trespassing).
    "A woman is like a teabag, you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water." - Eleanor Roosevelt

    Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.
