    Not a mainstream media story.
    Not a breaking news story (same "platform proposal" exists for previous years).
    Not the platform on the Texas GOP wesite.
    Not something worth discussing.

    It's completely subjective.

    Ah Texas...

    Criminalizing gay marriage? That's well beyond anything government may do. They may infringe upon someone's right to contract by denying the marriage contract to gay people, but that can be fought. But to throw gays into jail....no f'n way. The government is not empowered with that authority.

    And there aren't. World wide there are way more orphans than people willing to adopt. Now a days couples having trouble conceiving children are more apt to take fertility drugs until they have a litter than to consider adoption. There are not enough willing homes to go around, and until there is there is no point claiming same sex couples shouldn't be allowed to adopt. We'll cross that bridge once there are not enough orphans to go around.

    Quite so. Marriage is a contract, officially granted and recognized by the State.

    If that were true than why are there long waiting lists for wanabee parents?

    By the way most couples who find themselves infertile are that way for about two years after the gal stops taking the pill. Folks seem to think fertility can be turned on and off light a light.

    It's not true because I repeat it. I repeat it because it's true.

    And it compared them with hetero-couples living together to get the most accurate percentage of active queers ever.
