It’s bad enough that the State Board of Education has become a heavily politicized, dysfunctional embarrassment for Texas. Now religious-righters want control of the Texas Education Agency as well. State Rep. Wayne Christian, R-Center, wants Gov. Rick Perry to appoint SBOE member Charlie Garza, R-El Paso, as the state’s education commissioner and head of TEA. […]
Tuesday’s Republican Primary elections in Texas brought the defeat of one prominent member of the far-right faction on the State Board of Education — Gail Lowe, R-Lampasas. But two other Texas politicians prominent on the far right also appear to have been too extreme even for GOP voters. One was state Rep. Leo Berman, R-Tyler, […]
We were perusing through the far-right Texas Eagle Forum’s website the other day and found this: The Eagle Forum’s legislative scorecard for the 82nd Legislature that concluded mid-summer. Ranking as the most conservative on the Eagle Forum’s list, and the only legislator — in the House or Senate — to receive a 100 percent rating […]
Let’s play fill in the blank. Check out the following quotes from two Texas legislators about the potential mingling of public funds and a religious doctrine. The first is by state Rep. Sid Miller, R-Stephenville, followed by state Rep. Wayne Christian, R-Center. See if you can guess what religion they’re railing against. “Apparently it’s (involved […]

Wayne Christian, R-Center, offered a budget amendment that required state colleges and universities that fund campus gender and sexuality centers (which on the University of Texas and Texas A&M campuses serve women and LGBTQA communities) to spend an […]
Wayne Christian lets the truth slip in an interview with the Texas Tribune: Of course it’s a war on birth control, abortion, everything — that’s what family planning is supposed to be about. This wasn’t a momentary slip of the tongue. Christian is just saying out loud what many Texas lawmakers believe — and many […]
Texas state Rep. Wayne Christian, R-Center, may have succeeded and failed at the same time.
And here we thought naming our hypothetical center for family and traditional values after icon of manliness and far-right hero Chuck Norris was pretty clever. But someone has taken it further and created a twitter account mocking the budget amendment by state Rep. Wayne Christian, R-Center. “The University of Texas Wayne Christian Center for Baby-Making […]
If you’re a heterosexual college student, state Rep. Wayne Christian, R-Center, wants you to stay that way. Just the heterosexual part; the House is still slashing funds for education, so you’re apparently on your own for the student part. But keep Rep. Christian in your thoughts next time you’re walking into your campus’ Chuck Norris […]
