This case is similar to the one in Michigan where the plaintiffs cite the denial of civil rights from their *son*, who is being denied the legal recognition of his parents' marriage. That's a tough point to argue against, punishing children because other people don't like their parents....

Wow.... just wow... Born and raised in Texas, proud of it too.... not always proud of the way some of my fellow Texans act... but I can see that they don't hold a monopoly on being biased and judgmental....
You do realize that your remarks can be viewed as more than a bit derogatory, right? Guess you are entitled to your thoughts, no matter how disparaging they seem.

LOL! I would loan Mexico the dollar to buy Texas; but I'm afraid Mexico would default when they realized they got cheated

Texas is seriously out of sync with the rest of us; and has been for quite a while. El Paso is especially adept at popping up on our discussion board with soaring outrageous misbehavior

I was just suggesting a peaceful solution that wouldn't upset the Great White Egotists until a year or two when they finally figure out what happened too late to do anything about it

Since you are a salvageable Texan; we'll give you plenty of time to sell your horse and escape to Oklahoma

I say take all the far righters from all 50 states move them to Texas and let Texas go back to Mexico or become its own nation. Whole nation would be better off without the cavemen.

Isn't it interesting that the gay couples have *so many bases* on which to argue denial of rights? I mean, looking at the cases that are going forward, being instituted or being planned, we have a "smorgasbord" of reasons that denying these marriages legitimacy is unconstitutional and unfair.

It's interesting and amusing to me that the resolution to *ALL* that unfairness is ... to recognize them nationwide. Then all that unfairness and all those double standard evaporate in an instant.

It's even more interesting to view a "deeply religious" person who is virulently antigay. There is *NO* objectivity; they *cannot see* the u.s. constitution or its value; they *are literally blind* to everything but their own fear and prejudice, and WON'T listen. The courts needed very, very badly to step in on these matters and it's about time they did; I am glad to see the progress because I theorize that even a huge loss will not stop anyone: Various groups will simply start suing on a case-by-case and state-by-state basis for individual rights; it will simply take longer and be a "rougher" road. But this does TRULY seem inevitable, even if it takes another fifty years rather than the (more and more widely) predicted three to five.

Nice description of Christ-insanity-ists. Very objective. And you are right, these loses will not stop them. Our Founding Fathers stopped them at the founding of America with the first Amendment and Christians have been trying to establish Christ-insanity by passing unjust, unfair and unconstitutional laws every since.

Based on various statistics it is quite possible to make generalizations about TX.

Molly Ivins or Jim Hightower or Ann Richards or Austin, for example, are essentially anecdotal, exceptions. The median wage, education and environmental picture, the penchant for capital punishment, the long history of anti glbt bigotry, the jeesus freakery is clear. Without its accidental fossil fuel related industries the place would be a real basket case. An even worse lagging, right wing hellhole.

Although we hear rumors TX might go purple in five years or whatever. I can't wait.
