Anything worth talking about, is worth blogging about

Smooth move, Texas

This might be old news, but it has begun to circulate through the blogosphere, and so I am going to post it anyway.

In 2005, voters in Texas approved a constitutional amendment that “bans” same-sex marriage and civil unions. The text of the amendment (my emphasis):

Section 32. (a) Marriage in this state shall consist only of the union of one man and one woman.
(b) This state or a political subdivision of this state may not create or recognize any legal status identical or similar to marriage.

Banning marriage just shows that opposition to same-sex marriage is not really about the sanctity of marriage.

On the other hand, someone at the Language Log thinks that there is a way to dodge this reading.
