Texas Bans Gay Marriage

The voters of Texas overwhelming approved a state constitutional amendment banning gay marriage. This debate has occurred before at RTH! and you know where I stand (i.e. no problem with same sex civil unions, but against state recognition of same sex marriage). The interesting, and repeated, talking point from the left can be found in the linked article from a gay rights website. Namely, that arguments in favor of such bans are "part of a long-standing effort by the extreme right..." and then fill in the blank. It is sad that, in some circles, the notion that marriage should be reserved to one man and one woman is considered a radical, extremist position. [Note: Not at all like the mild, reasonable and centrist position of approval for a man marrying another man.]
