When A Headline Doesn't Tell The Story

Tuesday social media had a field day--the state of Texas as a rainbow flag!
People were really excited.

Buuuut, from a practical standpoint, we aren't really any closer to marriage equality than we have been for a year.

What happened-- a county probate judge said that Texas's ban on same-sex marriage was unconstitutional. Same thing said by another judge a year ago. Arguments were heard in the Fifth Circuit last month and now we're in a holding pattern. The speculation at this point is whether or not the Fifth Circuit will decide, or leave it up to the Supreme Court in June.
