12.5.12 — Texas Values Files Brief on Same-Sex ‘Domestic Partnerships’, Pflugerville ISD Board Meeting Next Week

Texas Values and Alliance Defending Freedom submitted a brief today to Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, requesting that his office find the Pflugerville ISD and other local governmental entities in violation of the Texas Constitution. Texas State Senator Dan Patrick made a request for the opinion on Nov. 2. PISD and other local governments are creating and recognizing a new legal status of “domestic partnerships” as a method to offer marital benefits to unmarried government employees in direct violation of the Texas Marriage Amendment. PISD and other local governmental entities in Texas are blatantly violating the Texas Constitution and the will of the Texas people, which supported the Texas Marriage Amendment by an over 76% vote. The language of the Texas Constitution and its legislative intent are crystal clear on this issue. Read our brief.

Action Alert: Pflugerville ISD is reconsidering its same-sex benefits policy. The issue is finally being put on the agenda for a School Board meeting on Thursday, Dec. 13 at 7 p.m. in the Pflugerville High School cafeteria, 1301 W. Pecan Street. We need you to turn out and let your voice be heard if you are in the area. Contact us if you plan to attend.
