Texas Marriage Amendment Struck Down

by Bethany Monk

A federal judge today ruled against a Texas constitutional amendment defining marriage as a union between one man and one woman. The ruling will not go into effect while the case is appealed.

“This ruling by unelected federal Judge Orlando Garcia is the most egregious form of judicial activism of our generation,” said Texas Values President Jonathan Saenz. “This hollow victory and clear attack on morality and the rule of law will not stand in Texas.”

A Supreme Court ruling last year left the door open for challenges to state amendments.

The fight for marriage is far from over, Saenz explained.

“This is just the beginning of an epic battle that the Texas people will ultimately win in name of the only true and lawful definition of marriage: one man, one woman.”
