Texas Lawmakers Push Against Gay Marriage

With a possibility the U.S. Supreme Court next month will legalize same-sex marriage, the Republican-controlled Texas legislature is pushing measures to bolster the state's constitutional amendment that bans gay weddings.
The campaign coming in the final weeks of the legislative session has been called by critics an attempt to enact mean-spirited laws, some of which probably could not survive a legal challenge.
Texas is one of many socially conservative states looking to slow down the gathering momentum in favor of same-sex marriages in the country.
