    State of Texas has banned Marriage!!!

    Grumble Grumble Grumble

    Back in 2005, there was a rush in the US state of Texas to pass a law that would ban same sex marriage. But Texas voters and the state Legislature evidently didn't read the fine print of the law that was passed...
    But the amendment included the following clause, which was reportedly designed to ban civil unions and domestic partnerships: "This state or a political subdivision of this state may not create or recognize any legal status identical or similar to marriage."

    One thing that is "identical…to marriage," of course, is marriage. And Texas Attorney General candidate Barbara Ann Radnofsky, a Democrat, is arguing that the current Attorney General, Republican Greg Abbott, made a "massive mistake" in allowing the language.

    How in the hell this happened? Have they changed the law or something? xD I hope no news like...

    "Declining of population in Texas" or "Declining of birthrate in Texas"

    would happen xD that was hilarious someone needs to revise their English it seems

    This is sad; very much so!

    If they did this, then there is no hope for that state.

    Second: Rayme are you for real? Birthrates down? Don't you know what makes a marriage these days? You got to get knocked up first. DUR!

    So the Lone star state is a double edge sword, in a way On one hand they are trying to Stop a sin from happening and two they are ending or stoping people chioce of life.
    How "Big it" of texas or to put it another way teaxs is being very hypocritical.

    I think that the only way to really describe an occurrence as stupid as this is through humour. This is sad, but agreed, it's funny as hell.
