Texas Votes on Marriage

Texas Votes on Marriage

I have heard – although I have (to my shame) not yet read it for myself – that the Texas State Constitution is long and rambling affair, more akin to a college catalogue than our Federal Constitution.

At any rate, every other year or so (our state legislature only meets every OTHER year), we have the “opportunity” to vote on any number of proposed amendments to our State Constitution.

Keep in mind that the proposed Constitutional changes are invariably the brainchildren of our legislators (or those that influence them).  Thus, most of them are about things many Texans care little about.

I generally vote against ALL proposed amendments to the State Constitution.

However, this year, I DID vote FOR only ONE of the proposed amendments, known as Proposition 2 which reads as follows:

“The constitutional amendment providing that marriage in this state consists only of the union of one man and one woman and prohibiting this state or a political subdivision of this state from creating or recognizing any legal status identical or similar to marriage.”

In other words, if Proposition 2 passes, “gay marriage” will have been prohibited by the State Constitution – as decided by the people of Texas in a statewide vote.

It would seem like a slam-dunk.  However, the homosexual activists (or, as Michael Savage would say: “The Purple Mafia”) have been working extremely hard to confuse people on what this issue is all about.  (It is informative that they are less than candid: They are NOT going about Texas saying that they support homosexual marriage – even though they do.)

If you are a Texan, PLEASE vote FOR Proposition 2.  (Early voting is going on NOW!)
