Man who stands in way of Texas equality works to stunt economic windfall as well

by Jeremy Hooper

Responding to the obvious-stated report that Texas' economy would benefit if it opened the booming wedding economy to same-sex couples, the state's head of the self-appointed morality police, Jonathan Saenz, wonders the following:

Of course the answer is no because responsible researchers prefer to cull their data from sensible study and projections based off the many states that have had marriage equality for some time now rather than the fear mongering of people who collect a paycheck off of this form of discrimination.

But that's the thing with anti-gay activists circa 2014: they act like it's still 2002. Even though we now have nineteen states with marriage equality, full federal rights and benefits, and consistent polling that shows majority support, they still use the same "sky is gonna fall" rhetoric that they used back when this conversation was fully theoretical. They haven't evolved one bit. And yet they expect their broken rhetoric bank to yield different results?

Dude, Jonathan—ridiculous fears like the one you traffic in here are a big reason why you're movement is in the state it is in now! You're side has lost, Jonathan.Get out of the way and let your caterers and florists and planners make a little more cash. You've blocked enough already.
