Evidently the majority of Texans want marriage to remain between one man and one woman.
I agree, but, as with all human rights, sometimes, the government has to pass laws to implement the rules.
You think the state should go against the vote of the people?
It did with civil rights for blacks.
The Thirteenth Amendment was approved by the 39th Congress and ratified all the states in December 6, 1865. This is originally what gave blacks their freedom, then the 14th Amendment gave all males their voting rights, the 15th Amendment also deals with voting rights. Once the 13th Amendment was passed all blacks were covered under the Constitution and Bill of Rights.
The Civil Rights Acts were passed by Congress, but if you read them, nowhere in the verbage does it say that it was created for blacks. So basically those civil rights acts apply to everyone not just blacks.
