Texas court hearing case to limit gay marriage legalization

AUSTIN, Texas – The Texas Supreme Court agreed Friday to hear a Houston case that top conservatives hope will provide an opening to challenge the landmark 2015 ruling legalizing gay marriage nationwide.

Reversing its previous ruling, the state’s highest civil court set arguments for March in a lawsuit seeking to halt same-sex spousal benefits that America’s fourth-largest city offers its municipal employees. The nine Republican justices had ruled in September not to hear the case in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling from the previous summer that gay marriage was constitutional nationwide.

But Gov. Greg Abbott, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick and state Attorney General Ken Paxton filed a subsequent brief saying that the case could serve as a platform to help Texas restrict the scope of the high court decision.

“Major constitutional rulings by the United States Supreme Court routinely give rise to waves of litigation exploring the contours and limits of the court’s pronouncement,” the three Republicans wrote in an October brief. “This case is one of many cases that will require state courts to examine the scope of the right to same-sex marriage announced by the Supreme Court.”

    I would feel better about this if it went through the judicial system after President Trump has a chance to replace one of the pro-gay marriage justices.

    Same sex marriage…..IS NOT a Constitutional Right!!!!! This is a choice…. a lifestyle! Choices are decisions made in our lives daily, which are not Constitutional Rights!
    Is it Constitutional Right……for me to infringe my personal opinions on individuals, because they disagree with me? Is it a Constitutional Right for me to do illegal drugs because I like it? Is it a Constitutional Right for me to go over to my neighbors house and take his dog, because I like it and want it? Is it a Constitutional Right to force others to like me, because I am insecure???? These so called ” Constitutional Rights” have been blown out of portion & over rated! The ACLU….has manipulated the true Constitutional Rights of our Society in the name of Ideology! Drain the swamp….. President Trump!
