TFN’s Kathy Miller to Texas AG Ken Paxton: Obey the Law of the Land

The Austin American-Statesman has posted a short video of TFN President Kathy Miller calling on Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton to stop obstructing the Supreme Court’s ruling on the freedom to marry for gay and lesbian couples. Kathy was speaking at a press conference on Monday at the Texas Capitol. She spoke along with leaders from the Human Rights Campaign, Equality Texas, and the ACLU of Texas as well as plaintiffs in the federal and Texas marriage court cases.

    Paxton has, as too many Christians, broken his oath of office and should be arrested by federal marshals and spend a few years in prison.

  • Beverly Margolis says:

    It still boggles my brain that people cannot and will not understand that the Court did NOT make a new law. They ENFORCED a 147 year-old Amendment to the Constitution. The 14th reads: All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
    The states have been denying equal legal rights by prohibiting same-sex marriage.
    It has been 147 years that LGBT people have been denied equal rights.

    It is a sad day when a U.S. Supreme Court decision can be ignored by petty politicians in a state. It sets a bad precedent that should concern all Americans.

    Watch the following video. Move the time bar to 24:57 and watch on forward from that point—and listen closely:

  • Amazed says:

    Well the president doesn’t and we do have problems with double standards. I don’t agree with what Paxton is doing.

    • Doc Bill says:

      Amazed, you have been throwing this trash out of your window for some days now. I’m amazed you haven’t been fined for littering!

      • Amazed says:

        Doc Bill,

        That is the argument that I am hearing. I don’t agree with it. The Supreme court ruled and that settles as far as I am concerned. Now I am hearing stupid talk of secession again.

        • Doc Bill says:

          Amazed wrote “Well the president doesn’t…” which is a very bigoted thing to write and totally irrelevant to the discussion and totally without substance.

          That’s litter, Amazed. Yeah, you may get some yuks from your fellow bigots down at the ice house, but not here.

          Defend your assertion. We await.

    • Beverly Margolis says:

      Tell me ONE thing that the president has done that is against the Constitution. Just ONE thing. You can’t because what you are doing is echoing the far “right’s” hateful sayings.

      It is clear that like most people who hate the president you don’t like us having a black president. Live with it.

      • Amazed says:

        Let’s see his immigration executive orders.

        But race has nothing to do with it Beverly, I wouldn’t like any president who did it.

        He also is a devout liar.

  • Rhonda says:

    Amazed, you need a new argument. The one you’re using is a lie, and you look very ignorant when you keep posting the same stupid comment everywhere you can.

  • Amazed says:

    I am not sure we can ask Paxton to dothat when President doesn’t
