Analysis: This bill would effectively fire and strip any earned pension from a public employee in Texas who issues a marriage license to a same-sex couple if Texas’ ban of same-sex marriage is struck down by a federal court.

Position: There's really no need to equivocate on this, this is just hate. Secular Texas believes the government should treat all people equally under the law. Further, penalizing public employees for complying with the law in the performance of their job, based on the personal religious biases, is nothing short of malicious and hateful.
