The 2012 Texas Democratic Party Platform recognizes that same sex marriage should be valid and legal in America and calls for the repeal of the Federal Defense of Marriage Act, the Texas Defense of Marriage Act and the Texas Constitutional Marriage Amendment.
Personally, Lone Star Ma does not understand why some straight people think that their marriages need "defense" from gay marriage. No gay people have ever threatened my marriage. Some straight women have tried, mind you, but no one tries to pass any laws defending my marriage from them. Not that I need the help, as it turns out, but I still don't understand the danger of gay marriage. These DOMA people get confused, I think.
