Judge Orlando Garcia, based in San Antonio, stayed enforcement of his decision pending appeal, meaning homosexual couples in Texas for the time being cannot get married.

Doesn't exactly sound like a "Good ole boy" out of Texas...

Quelle surprise.  The 14th amendment exists.

Hopefully Jan Brewer will look at this and think, "Well, okay, I guess I'll veto it."

Oh, who am I kidding? I used the words "Jan Brewer" and "think" in the same sentence.

Texans should love this, their government just got a little smaller.

I was going to submit this as "Texas ban on same-sex marriage to become more powerful than you can possibly imagine" but I like this too.

If anything, I expect an Arizona type law introduced by the end of the week, and quickly passed in Texas.  the conservatives here cannot stand gays for some reason, and love to use them as a scapegoat.
 
2014-02-26 03:43:59 PM
This isn't going to last long, but it would be pretty awesome if the ruling stood up to appeal.

She bucked her own party and gave the go-ahead for a Medicaid expansion for Arizona.  I think she's smart enough to see the foolishness in that obscene law.

Part of Garcia's ruling: "Equal treatment of all individuals under the law is not merely an aspiration it is a constitutional mandate."

Out-Farking-Standing, Judge! Sound off like you got a pair!

In related news, the court upheld a law that made it illegal to fark a person in the ass and not even have the common decency to give him a reach-around.
 
2014-02-26 03:45:24 PM
It's pending appeal, so don't start sucking each others dicks yet.

I eagerly await the flood of butthurt Facebook friends plotting their move to Australia, since they don't have gay marriage or national healthcare
 
2014-02-26 03:46:43 PM
This is currently a victory in word only. He immediately added a stay until it passes through appeals. You can absolutely expect the Rs to appeal.

Unfortunately, this domino won't fall until the SC forces it to.
 
2014-02-26 03:47:01 PM
Bravo subby, I went for the same joke and botched it more than Sin Cara botches an armbar (terribly written in a rush; newsflash ruined the tone). I wonder when appeals on all these states will finally go through, might want to buy stock in wedding service industry companies by end of the year.

A bit of a stretch for that "joke," yet again.

But anyway. Hells yeah. We'll still have to fight the appeal, but this is a step that has to be taken.

I liked the polling they did where they just asked whether people supported or opposed Amendment One, and people supported it by a decently large margin. Then they did the same poll, but explained all of what Amendment One actually did. The margin flipped, and there was a large majority against it.

Amendment One passed entirely because of ignorance. Well, bigotry too, but without the ignorance, it would have failed.

I'm happy about the ruling, but I feel the headline is in poor taste and not up to FARK standards. Although a headline celebrating outlawing discrimination that refers to a derogatory epithet for said oppressed minority is pretty snarky.

I'm gonna give this one a pass.

Live in Texas.  Derpers in my office are going to go all herp and derp when they find out about this.

Separation of church and state is not only confusing to some, but offensive.
