    Texans Now Support Equal Marriage

    A study commissioned by Equality Texas found that a plurality of public opinion in Texas is now just in favor 47.9% to 47.5 of changing the discriminatory marriage law.

    That is up significantly from 2010, when just 42.7% said yes. In 2005, only 23.8% of voters rejected the anti gay marriage amendment known as Proposition 2, a change of 20 percent in just five years.

    This phenomenal growth in Texas follows the national trend in the US showing support growing by one to four percent every year. It is now only a matter of time before Texas has a solid majority in favor of the freedom for gay couples to marry.

    In Texas those in favor of Prop 2 use those same numbers to say, "Texans Rejected Gay Marriage by a margin of 3 to 1."

    With Rick Perry in the Governor's Mansion, and Texas Republicans and Tea Party "faithful" outvoting Democrats in the Texas Legislature by 2 to 1 margins on every issue, I wouldn't get my hopes up for any type of Gay Equality any time soon.

    HOWEVER!

    This Texan Supports Equality Texas every chance that I get, and used one of my birthday parties as a fundraiser where we raised close to $300 in one night!

    HRC can bite me!

    Along with Texas Republicans AND the Texas Democratic Party!
    Never regret anything, because in that moment it's exactly what you wanted.

    Right, but I used the opposing number to illustrate my point, i.e. increasing support for same sex marriage.

    I would not either.

    The only gay rights legislation ever passed in Texas became law in 2001 when Rick Perry signed the Hate Crimes Act. The Democratic Party held the House of Representatives then, and was in the minority by one vote in the Senate.

    Today, we cannot even get the sodomy law symbolically repealed.

    I always knew you were a die hard advocate

    It's people like you who are making this all possible.

    Some day the majority will be so large that it cannot be ignored.

    We also thought that the polls overestimated support in Maryland and that we would lose horribly, but the result ended up besting the polls and coming out ahead. It did in all four states. The polls are more trustworthy now than ever.

    With the fact that demographics in Texas are changing rapidly, a Mexican state across the border that allows civil unions, and that Democrats could get a majority without gerrymandering, meaning that Texas isn't as conservative as its legislature makes is seem, I absolutely believe it.

    Oh I saw what you were doing.

    My Dad always says, "The difference between a pessimist and an optimist, is that a pessimist has more facts."

    I always knew you were a die hard advocate

    No Sir!

    It's people like you who encourage "advocates" like me that all of the work that we've done in the past hasn't been in vain.

    Hmm? I just used one side of the same fact, unless 110% of Texans can vote.

    You know an optimist with way more facts than I have, scream4ever. I don't know how he does it. I swear he has a crystal ball. He is always, no matter the situation, way more optimistic than I am.

    No Sir!

    Oh stop it
