The Beginning of the End?

In his latest video, Matt Baume tackles the myriad ways Trump could destroy Obama's LGBT progress. Watch HERE.

What spooked me most today, however, is news that the Texas Supreme Court has agreed to hear a lawsuit challenging same-sex benefits. This is exactly the path conservatives need to get a case to the U.S. Supreme Court. which could become aggressively hostile to LGBT rights in the years ahead. It was the phrasing that gave me chills:
The motion to rehear urged the court to reject the “ideology of the sexual revolution” embraced by federal judges who found a constitutional right to gay marriage, overturned Texas abortion regulations and struck down a Mississippi law that would have allowed individuals and businesses to refuse service to same-sex couples based on religious objections to gay marriage.
Wow. Full story HERE.

There's no going back. (From HERE.)

Ha! Sadly, I don't think you need to worry that they weren't already on top of this.
