Texas AG Greg Abbott promises to fight same-sex marriage ruling

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

AUSTIN, Texas — Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott has promised to appeal a federal court ruling that the state’s ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional.

Abbott released a statement Wednesday after federal District Judge Orlando Garcia said the ban violated the rights of homosexual couples who want to get married.

Garcia said the state could show no compelling reason to deny that right to the two couples who brought the lawsuit. But Abbott said states have the right to define marriage as they see fit.

Abbott’s appeal will go to the conservative 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans. Federal judges in other state have reached similar conclusions and the case will likely go to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Abbott is also the Republican front-runner to replace retiring Gov. Rick Perry.

  29. …ignorance reaches a new peak in america…the following was actually said by carol foyler, a tea party republican in arizona…

    “Quite frankly, we were blindsided by this,” she said. “We had no idea that gays had money and bought things just like regular people do.”

    “How was I supposed to know what gay people do with their money, etc., when I don’t personally know any gay people?” she asked. “I’m sorry, but it was up to the gays to tell us.”

  119. The prob is the word Marriage. Marriage is a religious term and govt issues marriage licenses. Stop issuing marriage licenses and offer/convert to civil union licenses to everyone. If we take religion out of govt as intended by our constitution…you know, that whole separation of church and state part…we negate any argument any one has about religious views and equality .

    Posted on Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 9:04pm
  120. Marriage is not a religious term. You're thinking of "holy matrimony." Marriage is a secular legal contract between two people. One can have a religious wedding or a secular wedding. I'm an atheist, and my husband and I were married by a Justice of the Peace. No religious involved, and we're just as married as anyone else, and have a marriage license to prove it.

  125. Good! At the very least this means that the circuit will wind up with someone with standing in the case and no room to toss it out like the Prop 8 circus. Then we’ll either have a ruling in the circuit knocking these laws out, or it’ll get lumped with the other cases to go the SCOTUS.

  163. Are the republicans trying to take the focus off them for their idiotic rants that they are going after the LGBT community now?

    Posted on Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 9:34pm
  164. Please take a moment to call Governor Jan Brewer to let her know how you feel about 1062 which allows businesses to discriminate against the LGBTQ Local community and visitors. Besides being ridiculous and completely backward it will be hard to enforce since we don’t carry Gay membership cards. How do these businesses plan to screen people to establish who is gay, lesbian, queer or transgender? FYI Governor Jan Brewer not all gay people fit the stereotypical mold of what bigots might imagine gay people to look like. Call her today please and leave a message with your voice. The good people of Arizona need us now 602-542-4331. Call Call Call, Share, Share, Share
