    In the mind of an attorney who wants to be AG of Texas. Looks like a good case for NOT voting for her.

    Wow, a rare time in which Texas got it right, since gays are discriminated against in marriage they realize it is only fair and just to add heterosexuals.

    This screw up could make a lot of hetrosexual husbands OR wives very happy in Texas, knowing they may not be legally married. :lol:

    I wonder how many of this type of 'screw up' is in the Health Care Bill? :eek:

    This is the part in question: "This state or a political subdivision of this state may not create or recognize any legal status identical or similar to marriage."

    Intelligent voters understand that to mean, no marriage-like status or marriage for those outside the one male/female arrangement. Parsing incorrectly seems to be the stock and trade of liberals lately.

    Gotta love it............the very thing they were trying to prevent in order to protect their concept of marriage is the very thing that will destroy it........BY THEIR OWN HAND!

    Gotta love the irony.
