A Texas bill that would have prevented officials from issuing marriage licenses to gay couples has failed. Thanks to the work of several gay rights groups, the bill was delayed and was unable to continue through the Texas legal system.
This is yet another example of people banding together for the common goal of equality and helping to shape the future of America. It has happened in many other states before, and will continue until same-sex marriage is legal throughout the US. It’s truly wonderful to be able to witness such a controversial topic work its way throughout the US and change the future of it’s people.
Additionally, the Supreme Court will soon be voting on whether gay couples have a constitutional right to marriage or if each state should decide for itself. Hopefully the Supreme Court will make the right decision and acknowledge marriage between two people regardless of sex or gender.
