Trust old Bible thumping Bigot Cornyn to start talking about the National Marriage Amendment yet again on the day the California Supreme Court rules against the laws and statues banning Gay Marriage in California.

The Dallas Morning News WASHINGTON – Thursday’s California court ruling striking down that state’s ban on gay marriage will spark a fresh push to add a nationwide ban to the U.S. Constitution, Texas Sen. John Cornyn said shortly after the ruling was announced.
“It’s certainly surprising. Many of us thought that the efforts to overturn the tradition marriage laws would be confined just to Massachusetts,” said Mr. Cornyn, a chief backer of a push to enact a constitutional ban, which failed in 2004.
He noted that during congressional debates several years ago, one argument used by opponents of a constitutional ban was that few states allowed such arrangements, making the drastic step premature.
The California development, he said, reopens that argument.
“I do expect it’ll generate some more debate, and I’ll be happy to contribute to it,” said Mr. Cornyn, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, adding that Thursday’s ruling also unleashes a slew of questions about whether other states will be forced to recognize same-sex unions from California.
Texas has had enough of Cornyn’s hatred and bigotry and spouting the same old tired lines that Bush & Company used to take power and wreck their divisive politics and failed policies on Texas and this nation. It is time to elect new leaders who actually care about America and not just pandering to the religious bigots.
