From a "strict constructionist" standpoint, Texas has just outlawed all marriage . . .
TX did Outlaw All Gay or Hetero Marriages on Tues?
DallasVoice: Dallas lawyer Mike Northrup says "Sub-section A says that in TX, marriage consists only of the union of 1 man and 1 woman. Then sub-section B says the state and its political sub-divisions cannot create or recognize any legal status identical or similar to marriage. Read literally, the only thing identical to marriage would be the union of a man and a woman, and the amendment says the state cannot recognize that. Would any judge interpret it that way? I don’t know. But it is a definite possibility, from a strict constructionist point of view." Hmm, isn't it from a strict constructionist pt of view that conservatives always uphold and revere law? Does that mean that Jenna & Barbara are now bastards? Well, the apple doesn't fall from the tree...
