Does this surprise anybody?

Jack Kemp

Reported from Texas:

An openly gay Texas judge says she refuses to conduct marriage ceremonies for straight couples until same-sex couples can also wed.

Dallas County Judge Tonya Parker explained her decision Tuesday at a monthly meeting for the Stonewall Democrats of Dallas.

“I do not perform them because it is not an equal application of the law. Period,” she said, according to the Dallas Voice, a newspaper for the gay community.


Same-sex marriage is not legal in Texas.

Judge Parker has essentially outlawed straight marriages in her court. Would anyone bet that a gay judge in a state which already has legal gay marriages wouldn't attempt the same maneuver until such a time until gay marriage is legal all over the US and in Tahiti and Nepal also?
