It’s sad enough that Texas only overturned an archaic law banning sodomy in 2003. Now, in 2010, the Texas Republican Party has agreed to a platform that would not only bring back the sodomy ban, but criminalize gay marriage. Same-sex marriages are already invalid in Texas; the new measures would also give jail sentences to anyone who issues a marriage license to a same-sex couple, among other things.

The party argues that homosexuality “tears at the fabric of society, contributes to the breakdown of the family unit and leads to the spread of dangerous communicable diseases.” As for me, I still fail to see how the formation of loving, responsible, committed long-term relationships among people of the same gender contributes to any of these things… and I won’t be moving to Texas anytime soon.
