xybender saidThere is nothing in Texas I missed! Haven't been there over 10 years. It's a hick place full of ignorant breeders.
That is the absolute truth. Texas will never change its ultra conservative, backward ways. Even in the big major cities of Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, and Fort Worth there are large stubbornly ultra conservative neighborhoods and districts that will always be staunchly anti gay marriage claiming that they are protecting traditional values. Religious conservatism in Texas is not just a small town, rural, mostly white affair. Most of the state's rapidly growing Hispanic population is very conservative and religious. Houston having an openly gay person as a three term mayor is a total fluke. That will never change the powerful right wing ways of the Lone Star State. The only viable way that gay marriage will ever happen in Texas is through a US Supreme Court ruling. Otherwise these gay marriage proponents are just wasting their time pissing against the wind.
