Video: TX anti-gay activist claims folks are fleeing our nineteen marriage equality states

by Jeremy Hooper

According to the US Census Bureau, the population of Massachusetts is around 6,692,824, which is up 2.2% from the 2010 estimate of 6,547,629. But hey, when have facts ever gotten in the way of anti-gay, far-right, "values" conservative activist's talking points?

Right Wing Watch brings us the clip. Speaker is Cathie Adams of the Texas Eagle Forum:

The truer claim is that there are more than a few Americans who would never again consider living in a marriage inequality state. I am one of them. My husband and I have full state and federal rights, which protect not only our own bond but also our shared legal connection to our child. If we were planning to move from NYC, we would not look at a fifty state map. Not yet. For now, our options would be limited to the nineteen states (plus D.C.) with marriage equality. We would never self-deny. We are never going back there again. And we are not alone; our numbers are only increasing.

Although I do kind of adore this fantasy image of a straight couple furiously packing their belongings before the weeds of their gay neighbors' loving marriage creep into their yard and eventually overtake their whole house. I'd watch that John Waters movie.
