Texas GOP Ex-Chair: Gay Marriage ‘Could Be The End Of America’
It won’t be a nuclear bomb; it won’t be an earthquake or volcano; it will be two people loving each other legally that will end America.
Cathie Adams, the former chairwoman of the Texas Republican Party who now leads the state chapter of Eagle Forum, told a Republican group yesterday that if Texas doesn’t defy a potential Supreme Court ruling in favor of marriage equality this year, it “could be the end of America.”
On April 28, the U.S. Supreme Court is going to hear arguments on marriage, and we expect that they’re going to do the wrong thing,” she said in at the end of a speech on Islam to the Smith County Republican Women, which was posted on YouTube by an attendee.
Adams told the group that before the Supreme Court decision comes down, Texas must pass a proposed bill denying compensation to county clerks who issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. She said that while she admired Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore’s defiance of the federal courts on marriage equality, “Alabama is Alabama.”
“Texas holds a whole lot more power and a whole lot more authority,” she said, “and if we don’t come out and do something before April 28, this could be the end of America.”
“If we don’t get this done by April 28, I don’t know that we’re going to be able to hold back what is happening,” she said. “And folks, if you are a believer, you understand what happened in Sodom and Gomorrah. You understand. And we are on the threshold. “

Taxation without representation. That’s what it will be since my taxes pay salaries, etc. Glad she’s a former chair person.

These idiots are trying to make other idiots believe that we as a country are so weak that if two people who love each other and decide to get married will destroy us. Pretty sure if we were that weak, it would be the shear idiocy of some of our population that would destroy us, not the love we have for each other.

” you understand what happened in Sodom and Gomorrah. You understand. And we are on the threshold”.
Well what other scientific data does one need that gay marriage will cause the end of civilization?
