If you crap in your bed, you must lay in it

Okay, now anyone who thinks that Texas has been a reasonable place up until now, hasnt been playing much attention. George Bush is from here. Tom Delay is from here, need I say more? Just a few years back, in East Texas, a black man was dragged to death behind a pickup truck for fun by a couple of white supremacist assholes. Texas still had effective blue laws up until the mid-80's, and you could still legally sip on a beer while driving until not long after that. Texas has a little union-busting law called "right-to-work" (i.e. the right to work for whatever the Man wants to pay you, or you can go work somewhere else, you useless cog). In fact Texas had, and has, a lot of really stupid laws.

So now, the religious and moral busybodies in Texas have helped out God by keeping marriage "safe" from the obvious social virus of Homosexuality (more dangerous than Bird Flu). One might think that now they would then be content to go home and raise little future heterosexual family makers. Yes, one might think that, if one were a fool. People who pay attention know that those who legislate their religious views off onto a whole society are less interested in spiritual salvation than they are in temporal power. They must have their views be everyone's views, or they are somehow made less whole. So, having defeated the Gay crowd, the next scourge to destroy is the no-fault divorce. After all, Marriage must be saved!
For the Children!
Because God Wants It!

Here in Texas (okay, to be fair, everywhere), if Jane and Bob want to get married, even though the only thing they have in common is four weeks of great sex and a mutual love of jet ski's, hair bands, wine coolers and sodomy, then they will have no problem doing so. But if John and Bob want to be married for the exact same reasons, they cannot.
On the plus side, if the Wingnuts get their way here in Texas (and, again to be fair, everywhere), John and Bob will not have to wade through a protracted (and doubtlessly expensive) divorce procedure after they discover that it takes more than water sports and lame Heavy Metal to make a marriage.

But Jane and Bob will.

So maybe that's fair after all.

Like I said Yankee, you can leave whenever you want but you have to take the kids. I will keep the cats and dog.
