When the Supreme Court delivered it’s ruling on the Defense of Marriage Act last year, many were let down, but more than a few were singing joyful noises to all who would lean an ear.
For those who only heard the courts struck down the act, they gathered at the table of circumvented realities and prepared delusional antidotes to insult the court’s opinion and misrepresent the ruling. The ruling only pertains to federal government employees benefits.
Houston’s Mayor Annise Parker skipped to that table of circumvented realities and left it a complete Liberal politician. Parker was no longer the Mayor of Houston, but the Mayor of the LGBT community. Houston voter approvals were no longer necessary, after all, this is her final term.
Houston voters dismantled an attempt at same sex marriage benefits back in 2001, but that’s all water under the bridge now. By decree, Parker is now governing the city and as such, has drawn a lawsuit behind her latest attempt to elevate the gay community above the rest of the city.
Parker’s lack of reading and comprehension skills decided to extend the SCOTUS’ ruling to city employees, even though the SCOTUS left in place state’s right to determine their courses of action. Texas does not recognize same sex marriages period and on last check, Houston is still a part of Texas.
Houston Republicans and the religious community is taking Parker’s unauthorized and abuse of power to the courts and promised to hand it over the SCOTUS for clarification. It’s such a shame that Parker is incapable of reading and comprehending what she reads, or perhaps, it’s equally shameful that Parker has decided to throw away the law and govern by personal agenda.
While the courts are hearing these frivolous arguments from Parker’s legal team, the city should demand and initiate a recall. Texas has a constitutional amendment defining exactly what the state considers to be a marriage and Parker is guilty of violating that well established area of law.
Parker’s style of governing says to hell with the state’s constitution, to hell with voters wishes, as well as their prior votes. Parker’s personal agenda, which begs to differ with society on every level, clearly says to hell with the voice of the city.
