Uh, hello?

"But no court, no law, no rule, and no words will change the simple truth that marriage is the union of one man and one woman. Nothing will change the importance of a mother and a father to the raising of a child. And nothing will change our collective resolve that all Americans should be able to exercise their faith in their daily lives without infringement and harassment." Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has announced his defiance.

But that paragraph must mean, if it's not pure applesauce, that Texas intends to outlaw divorce for couples with children and mandate remarriage for widows and widowers with children and single mothers.

And it must mean that any church that wants to marry gays has to be able to do it legally, because otherwise they're being infringed.

edited to add this update: Though he disapproved of the ruling, Paxton said that Texas would be following the Supreme Court ruling, and county clerks in Texas began issuing marriage licenses to gay couples on Friday.

and edited again to add this great picture from the Dallas Morning News:
