Soon it will be a FELONY for Public Servants to Officiate Gay Marriage Ceremonies? (Yikes)?

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.
Marriage Licenses – We support legislation that would make it a felony to issue a marriage license to a same-sex couple and for any civil official to perform a marriage ceremony for such.

Question for you:

What would the gay community say to Texas?? If you were standing before the GOP what questions, concerns or arguments would you raise?

    Texas is like a chamber pot for
    deluded religious lunatics.

    They wallow in the filth of
    their own minds… expecting
    others to take up their
    misguided notions of
    "morality" in order to
    condemn those they do
    not like.

    Gays are human beings,
    but the loonies are so far
    up each others’ anal orifices
    that they can’t see that.

    Texas is where your brain goes to die.

  3. Lady GayGa Says:

    Absolutely terrible. DESTROY THEM, MY LITTLE MONSTERS!

  4. Aggy Says:

    Well, Good bye to America as a world power if that sort of thinking takes hold. See you at the 2020 Conference for Underdeveloped Nations. Dont worry – you helped bail out Europe with aid after WW2. We will not see you starve.

  5. Woody B Says:

    Hah!- That proposal is actually unconstitutional and will never pass. Don’t panic- wacko groups like that try this stuff all the time and rarely get anywhere- even in Texas.

  6. Brad Says:

    What can you say, everything is bigger in Tex-ass!

  7. Silvernight Says:

    this anti gay sediment is terrible if someone does not hurt you it should not matter what people do in their own life

  8. Agnostic Says:

    well the bible states that he is of both genders which makes it a transvestite so its hypocritical to not allow gay marriage. its not about if its wrong its about if you love each other. move to another state

  9. G C Says:

    No matter what they call two of the same sex getting together it will never be marriage as it is defined by God as between a man and his wife.

  10. Somnn Says:

    Texas said this? I thought we weren’t saying anything about God with goverment.
    They have two different places, and I think this is a load of rubbish.

  11. No chance without Chance Says:

    It’s just a proposal. You should be more concerned with something that has actually happened — "The Court of Appeal for Saskatchewan, the province’s highest court, has ruled that marriage commissioners who are public employees CANNOT refuse to marry same-sex couples." (emphasis mine)
