Steve Hotze of Conservative Republicans of Texas warned the state’s attorney general, Ken Paxton, about gay marriage. Paxton told clerks they don’t have to issue marriage licenses to gay couples in spite of the Supreme Court ruling.

It turns out that in doing so, he had the encouragement of some vocal and influential Religious Right activists in his state, including Steve Hotze of Conservative Republicans of Texas, who wrote to Paxton hours after the court handed down its ruling urging him to ignore the decision by Supreme Court justices who “hate God and want to let the Sodomites queer our country.” –

Hotze’s email to Paxton read, in part:

“Greetings in the name of Christ our King!…

“Do what the Louisiana AG has done…

“The illegitimate SCOTUS ruling does not name Texas, so fight those lousy bastards…They hate God and want to let the Sodomites queer our country.”
