San Antonio was one of more than 100 cities across the nation to host suffer a Proposition 8 protest yesterday. Right smack downtown in front of San Fernando Cathedral and the county courthouse, lots of rainbow clad, GLBTG…XYZ’s got together and generated a little testosterone with their outrage.
Texans have had their own marriage amendment on the books since November 8, 2005. It passed with a 75% margin, but before you get too complacent, remember the Texas Constitution has about as many amendments as a dog has fleas. We’ve got the public support and numbers now, but don’t rely on a document that is notoriously weak to protect traditional marriage for long. Scratch hard enough and long enough and the mindset of even the most conservative voters will eventually get worn down. Minds change, laws change. And before you know it, the Valentine’s Day weddings on the steps of the Bexar County Courthouse are going to be much more “colorful”.
