Editorial: California picks a fight with Texas

California wants to mess with Texas.

And it won’t end well for the land of “fruits and nuts.”

California officials are banning non-essential travel to Texas, Alabama, South Dakota and Kentucky because those states refuse to bow to political correctness and embrace the homosexual political agenda.

The ban applies only to state employees on official business. It is designed to punish Texas because of a new law that allows private charities to refuse to accommodate homosexual adoptions because of religious convictions.

The best scenario to raise a child is with a mother and father – not with two mothers or two fathers who are in an immoral relationship.

California thinks otherwise. North Carolina has already been blasted by California. Kansas, Mississippi and Tennessee will be the next targets for forced compliance with acceptance of homosexuality.

California has to allow some travel to Texas to accommodate its own state laws.

The Bible condemns homosexuality in both the Old Testament and New Testament. For most of U.S. history, it was illegal. A whole host of social diseases are associated with that lifestyle and it severely limits the lifespan of most of those who fall into that moral abyss.

California is not going to damage the Texas economy with this immoral overreach.

A spokesman for Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said: “California may be able to stop their state employees, but they can’t stop all the businesses that are fleeing over taxation and regulation and relocating to Texas.”

That’s the kind of political courage that Oklahoma could use a dose of.
