The Harris County Republican Party is calling on its members to tell the mayor to back off on same-sex marriage.
In an email blast sent out Monday, Chairman Jared Woodfill asks recipients to call or email the mayor “and tell her to support the Constitution and stand up for traditional marriage.”
Parker recently was among the leaders of a group of 78 mayors who announced at a conference in Washington, D.C., that they had launched Mayors for the Freedom to Marry.
I’m sure the Mayor will be delighted to hear from a bunch of crabs who think she’s a second-class citizen. I’m not sure how much of this is aimed at the Mayors for the Freedom to Marry movement and how much of it is a pre-emptive strike against the forthcoming non-discrimination ballot referendum, but it doesn’t really matter. That sound you hear is a death rattle. It will take awhile, likely longer than we’d like, and there will be losses along the way, but it’s clear which way the arc is bending, and it ain’t towards Jared Woodfill.
