While we've never dated a Texan, we can assume by the actions taking place across Texas tomorrow that the saying "Everything is bigger in Texas" is, indeed, true. Find out what nine different cities have in store to protest anti-gay lawmakers like Governor Rick Perry.
On Saturday, October 15, Austin, Brownsville, Corpus Christi, Dallas, Harlingen, Houston, Huntsville, Odessa and San Antonio will unite in the struggle for marriage equality.
From public and boisterous marches and rallies to intimate and symbolic marriage and committment ceremonies, the nine cities aim to send a message to their leaders that all families deserve equal protection and recognition.
"The doors to religious-based ceremonial weddings are wide open for same-sex couples throughout our state as more and more religious leaders are supportive of marriage equality for LGBT Texans," says Jay Morris, co-lead organizer for GetEQUAL Texas. "Unfortunately, the doors to the house of justice have been slammed in our faces, and 1,138 federal rights provided by marriage are denied to our families due to state and federal regulations like the Defense of Marriage Act. Today, we are protesting that state and federal inequality and drawing attention to the need for pro-family laws that will provide safety and protection for ALL Texas families, including the over 17,000 children being raised by same-sex couples in Texas."
Various other organizations in Texas are participating and helping to organize specific local events, including PFLAG and The First Unitarian Universalist Church of Austin.
Of course that’s how you see it, because you’re married to your candidate. You can’t seem to accept the fact that Perry is finished.
When it was sure that the field was set, Cain became the conservative candidate. That won’t be changing.
He hasn’t been vetted until the last week due to his former position in the polls. He is not fit for the office of potus as he has to backtrack nearly everything he says. He flip flops nearly as much as Romney.
Actually his rise in the polls came when Palin finally came out and said she wasn’t running. Most of the new fans were simply the rabid Palinistas.
He is good at marketing and motivation since that is his job. The thing is those are just talk, not real actions. It’s the same type of emotion driven reaction like 2008 with 0bama. I thought conservatives were more rational but it’s obvious that isn’t the case.
Well, they’re rational enough to not support La Raza Rick. And thank God for that.
No they aren’t rational. It’s the same type of hysterical emotion driven crap as the 0bama zombies fell for. He’s a motivational speaker and makes good money spreading the BS people want to hear.
The fact is that too many people have disengaged their brains in this election and are buying the lies on immigration issue being pushed by eugenics supporting white nationalists.
“Mass” demonstrations? We had 60 sleazebags here in a park.
Actually, that’s more of them than I realized. LOL!
