Texas GOP Platform Advocates Criminalizing Gay Marriage, Banning Strip Clubs, Pornography Marriage Licenses - We support legislation that would make it a felony to issue a marriage license to a same-sex couple and for any civil official to perform a marriage ceremony for such. The proposal from Republicans in the Lone Star state makes the following claims related to the party's view of homosexuality: "We believe that the practice of homosexuality tears at the fabric of society, contributes to the breakdown of the family unit, and leads to the spread of dangerous, communicable diseases." "Homosexual behavior is contrary to the fundamental, unchanging truths that have beenordained by God, recognized by our country's founders, and shared by the majority of Texans." "Homosexuality must not be presented as an acceptable "alternative" lifestyle in our public education and policy, nor should "family" be redefined to include homosexual "couples." They also want to "Outlaw" all sexually related businesses including strip clubs and Pornography. I say Good Luck with this platform. I think even the tea partiers are partial to their porn.
