As most of you remember, the Texas Attorney General said that county clerks in Texas did not have to supply marriage licenses to icky gay people because Jesus.
That’s fine. Jesus doesn’t sit on the Supreme Court but his Dad does in the form of Ruth Bader Ginsberg.
So, Glen Maxey and the Texas Democratic Party rounded up lawyers and told them to start filing suit in every county where gays were being rejected by their own damn government.
One of the sternest, crankiest and meanest county clerks is in Hood County by the name of Katie Lang. Much has been said about her name, but my friend Rutger said it best: “In the current case, saying Katie Lang out loud exemplifies the always profound symbiosis between homophones and irony.” That’s funny.
Now all these county clerks got themselves all worked up over their closely held religious beliefs. Luckily, that was trumped by their closely held held going-to-court beliefs. One by one, they are folding.
Including Katie Lang.
