Should a public official recieve a felony for officiating a Gay Marriage ceremony?

The proposal from Republicans in the Lone Star state makes the following claims related to the party’s view of homosexuality:

•"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."
The recently rolled-out platform from the Texas GOP has also come under scrutiny for advocating to outlaw all "sexually-oriented businesses" — including strip clubs and "all pornography" — while allowing virtually unrestricted access to oil and gas drilling.

    Texans are a little nuttier than most Americans. Taking you at your word, the proposal you are talking about will never pass even the Texas legislature.

    Learn to ignore nut-jobs and bigots.

    How do you get from ‘we believe homosexuality is wrong’ to officiating at a homosexual wedding should be a felony’?

    I think the EXISTENCE of several departments of the Federal Government is wrong, but I don’t support sending every employee of those departments to prison. Even if the proposals you claim actually became law, there is no indication ANYONE things they should be felonies.

    No, since homosexual mirages are not recognized it would be like someone marrying 2 rocks, they can if they want to but it means absolutely nothing.
