Texas Attorney General Defiant Over Court’s Same-Sex Marriage Decision
Defiance of Washington regime is a good sign for our future
EDITOR’S NOTE: As we at National Vanguard have pointed out numerous times, the more extreme the culture distortion imposed by the regime in Washington, the more polarization there will be — and polarization, which creates a larger and larger number of White Americans who no longer regard the Washington regime as their government, is a prerequisite for the radical changes we need. (Texas’ current resistance will probably be defeated by the edict of some federal judge, which will cause even more polarization.) Not only should we wish for full homosexualization of the regime at every level, but open calls for White genocide, the replacement of the Washington monument with a 500-foot-high statue of Winnie Mandela holding aloft the corpse of a White child, and the criminalization of opposite-sex, same-race marriages would all be 1) true reflections of the agenda of the real rulers of the current regime, and 2) much-needed wake-up calls for the healthy Whites who still remain.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) on Sunday advised county clerks, magistrates and others who have religious objections to same-sex marriage that they may opt out of providing services to same-sex couples seeking marriage licenses.
Calling the Supreme Court’s ruling Friday allowing same-sex unions nationally a “lawless decision,” Paxton said that his guidance was necessary to protect the religious liberties of hundreds of local officials whose job it is it issue marriage licenses.
“We find that although it fabricated a new constitutional right in 2015, the Supreme Court did not diminish, overrule, or call into question the First Amendment rights to free exercise of religion that formed the first freedom in the Bill of Rights,” he said in a statement.
The opinion offered a hint of the resistance that is likely to delay or otherwise hamper same-sex marriages in many of the 14 states that before Friday’s ruling did not permit gay couples to wed.
In particular, opponents have stressed the necessity to protect people of faith from being forced to condone or participate in a same-sex ceremony. Gay rights groups have called these efforts discrimination under the guise of religious liberties.
The opinion immediately drew criticism from gay rights groups, which said it was not legally sound. They also plan to press their case in Mississippi and Louisiana, which have held back broadly on providing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
“Public officials have no constitutional or statutory right to discriminate in providing public services,” said Shannon Minter, legal director for the National Center for Lesbian Rights. “This opinion is wrong on the law, and it does a disservice to officials who need clear, reliable guidance about their duty to follow the law and to provide marriage licenses to all qualified couples.”
