No I agree his being republican has little or nothing to do with it, but it was the title of the story.
I do think that Conservatives are far more likely to show this kind of behavior though than Democrats are to be honest.
You see Conservatives IMO, have been lied to and think that meddling in people's personal lives is somehow a conservative value, when in fact, it's a liberal one.

This thread makes me glad and sad at same time. It is sad to see such an abuse of the law with this lesbian couple, obviously they do not have the option to marry as they would if they were straight.
Abuse of the law is when as a judge or attorney use the rule of law against a group excluded from certain aspects of the law that may be available to a different group.
In Texas gays and lesbians cannot marry no matter how many years they have been living together. This judge added a morality clause that screws this couple over regardless of how serious they are or how much of a life they share together. They do not have the option to get married as they would if heterosexual which would circumvent the clause or nullify it.
But the most disgusting thing is to see the hypocrisy in this case. He does not like these women life style... it would be simpler to say "i'm against relationships between same sex people".
