Texas GOP Platform Would Make It A Felony To Perform A Same-Sex Marriage

Posted by | June 22, 2010 18:37 | Filed under: Top Stories

Texas Republicans have issued a platform that includes support for legislation that would make it a felony to issue a marriage license to same-sex couple, or to perform a same-sex marriage. The document also says:

  • We believe that the practice of homosexuality tears at the fabric of society, contributes to the breakdown of the family unit, and leads to the spread of dangerous, communicable diseases.”
  • “Homosexual behavior is contrary to the fundamental, unchanging truths that have beenordained by God, recognized by our country’s founders, and shared by the majority of Texans.”
  • “Homosexuality must not be presented as an acceptable “alternative” lifestyle in our public education and policy, nor should “family” be redefined to include homosexual “couples.”

They also hope to outlaw all “sexually-oriented businesses” including strip clubs and “all pornography.” While there would be no access to pleasures of the flesh under Republican rule, unrestricted oil and gas drilling would be allowed.
