TEXAS: State Democrats Add Marriage Equality To Platform
The Dallas Voice reports: A marriage equality plank was added to the Texas Democratic Party’s platform during this weekend’s state convention in Houston. QSanAntonio has the full text of the marriage equality plank:
“Texas Democrats join President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden in calling for and affirming equal rights including marriage equality for all Americans. We, along with our President and Vice President, recognize that same sex marriages should be valid and legal in America.
“Texas Democrats support President Obama and the United States Justice Department in recognizing that the Federal Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional and in refusing to defend DOMA in any Federal Court proceeding. We call for the total repeal of DOMA.
“Eight states and the District of Columbia have now recognized marriage equality and have legalized same sex marriages.
“Texas Democrats support the full inclusion of all families in the life of our state, with equal respect, responsibility, and protection under law, including the freedom to marry. Government has no business putting barriers in the path of people seeking to care for their family members, particularly in challenging economic times. We support the repeal of the Federal Defense of Marriage Act, the Texas Defense of Marriage Act and the Texas Constitutional Marriage Amendment and oppose other attempts to deny the freedom to marry to loving same sex couples.”
[snip]

The other big piece of news from this article is that the Texas Democrats elected a transexual national delegate. So, awesome all around for the Texas Democrats. 

Holy fuck. PA and TX on the same day?! I’m about to piss myself. This is going to be the craziest Democratic National Convention when this floor fight happens.
