Marriage Equality Bill Filed in Texas Legislature

Texas mapA marriage equality bill has been filed in the Texas legislature.

KRWG reports:

S.J.R. 13 by Senators Rodriguez and Juan “Chuy” Hinojosa proposes a constitutional amendment that would repeal the existing same-sex marriage ban in the Texas Constitution. “Texas is now only one of 18 states that deny legalized same sex marriage to its residents,” said Senator Rodriguez. “This not only shows the rest of the country that we remain mired in our history of inequality, it sends the message that our leadership would rather listen to the voice of intolerance than provide many of its residents the dignity and respect that they deserve. The time to change that is now.”

Not that it has a snowball’s chance in hell of passage, but it’s great to see the effort being made.

    The Texas ban on marriage equality will fall, it is just a matter of time. The thick-headed leaders who are digging their heals in will bury themselves. They are costing businesses over a billion dollars and these businesses will move to support marriage equality.
