The suit obnoxiously asks: Just because the ruling in Obergefell legalizes same-sex marriage does that require taxpayers to “subsidize” it? The preachers claim that Texas law explicitly forbids spousal benefits for gay partners. I believe that a ruling in favor of the petitioners would clearly be unconstitutional. That sentiment was echoed by Chuck Smith, who heads Equality Texas. He told local media:
The foundational principal with regards to access to marriage was based on the equal protection clause of the United States Constitution.Surely these people have better things to do. The LGBT citizens of Texas continue to subsidize their own oppression.
