Emma Meents, the teenage daughter of two gay men men, recently met Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton to shoot the breeze about marriage equality and Pride parades.
The Republican governor of North Carolina says he will not sign a partisan bill to give magistrates and clerks the right to refuse to perform same sex marriages or issue marriage licenses to gays and lesbians.
The state jurist, who advised officials to ignore a federal court ruling on marriage equality, wants the federal justice to be impeached for officiating a same-sex wedding.
A bill is headed to Gov. McCrory's desk that would allow judges and public officials to recuse themselves from providing marriage licenses to same-sex couples — or any couple at all.
Same-sex marriages already are prohibited by the Texas Constitution. But senators say they wanted to make a point by voting to ban gay marriage. Again.
The legislation seeks to address the 'chaotic state' that occurred after a federal court ruled the state must recognize same-sex marriage.
