In a major victory for gay rights, a Texas judge today struck down a Texas law that defines marriage as only between one man and one woman and prohibits gay couples from adopting children.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton sued the U.S. Supreme Court earlier this year to stop the federal Defense of Marriage Act from taking effect. The U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in June legalized same-sex marriage nationwide.
Texas’s gay rights fight for marriage equality became a focus of public attention early in the Obama presidency – at least partially because Obama, who had been a private citizen and activist during his 2008 presidential campaign, made marriage equality a major policy priority.
“It’s a very strong day to be a lesbian,” said Elizabeth White, one of four lesbians who filed the lawsuit to compel the justices not to allow the so-called Defense of Marriage Act to take effect.
“It was never my dream to have a husband who was going to adopt my children,” she recalled. “But, God knows, it was going to happen anyway. And I guess I got to go on a little bit longer.”
The couples who participated in the lawsuit are members of a now-defunct group called Texas Clergy for Responsible Stewardship, which was a public lobbying group representing religious pastors and others who believed that marriage was reserved for the union of one man and one woman.
They believe homosexuality should not be allowed within a marriage, and say they would gladly support a civil union or other equal-regime for same-sex couples.
“I know some people think about all the years we’ve been fighting this battle and they are worried about the future. But I was here today because I want to move forward with this. And I want this in the right hands,” said Susan B. Anthony List president Marjorie Dannenfelser.
