“But I dont get the comments on gay marriage. The GOP already has plenty in its ranks who support gay marriage or civil unions. The question which Paul fails to address is how the question ultimately gets decided.”
A few years ago, Texas approved a constitutional amendment that marriage is between a man and a woman. So, it’s decided in this state.
It’s only settled in Texas (and the other 30 or so states that have voted for marriage amendments) if our masters on the Sup Court allow the decision made by Texans to stand.
If Roberts and/or Kennedy side with the liberals and vote to strike down traditional marriage laws and amendments and impose recognition of gay unions, then the states would meekly obey.
I’d love it if I were wrong. It’d be great if a state like Texas simply refused to obey such a renegade decision. But I don’t think it would happen.
