Sigh...the Texas amendment recognizing marriage as exclusively between a man and a woman, with a more extreme follow-up (HJR 19) that will legally invalidate civil unions (I'm not clear on the legalities, I'm still grokking for info on HJR 19) is in the works.

Stupid conservative Bible Belt state...

Well, if it looks like HJR 6 is going to pass to the public vote, I encourage any Discordian to thoroughly support the MOST DRACONIAN LEGISLATION POSSIBLE. Hail Eris.

No, I don't mean that, not really, but HJR 19 seems to be pretty draconian, in and of itself. Yay, no legal recognition of civil unions. Or any form of marriage that is not strictly one man and one woman.

"Through the prayers and needs of Travis County, Leslie Cochran was transformed into a powerful avatar of Liberalism, where s/he/it fights square-headedness with her Mighty Lucite Pumps of Left-Wing Righteousness..."

I'll back the draconian 'Mandatory horde accumulation' bill. :)

I'm also in favor of the 'Married heterosexual couple on Wheels' program, where volunteers bring couples with sanctified unions to orphanages for an hour each weekend so that the less fortunate can enjoy some of thier positive influence.

I've heard of a program assigning couples to work alongside each other as prison guards to try to turn prisons into remidial institutions, but I'm not sure if that's ready for prime time yet.

Write your State rep. There's a link to the page to do it in my journal (too lazy to copy and paste one more frickin' time)

Handwritten carries more weight than e-mail, for the record. At least in advertising, I'm sure that's the case for political notes.

This looks like column material.

Gradman to the rescue :) It's kind of fun to see the spin the far right and the lib left columnists are putting on it. The first source I found for the article was some sort of Christian Family article.
