I just heard about a news story that gave me a laugh (it’s about 2 years late, apologies) so I wanted to share it and hopefully you will have a chuckle from it too!
Did you hear same sex marriage was legal in Texas for a moment? A federal judge threw out Texas’ constitutional ban on same sex marriage saying it was a violation of the due process clause in the US constitution.
There was a gay couple that was legally married in another state who were attempting to get a divorce in Texas.
Some were calling for the judge to prevent the divorce of this couple because married gay couples are a threat to heterosexual marriages. Texas’ attorney general appealed the decision of the judge that ended the gay marriage.
Which forced the 2 gay men to STAY married to protect straight marriage. The fundamentalists found themselves in quite the pickle…either acknowledge gay marriage by granting a divorce OR prohibit the divorce which forced the gay couple to stay married.
That’s what I call a win-win in one battle against bigotry.
