Staples Statement on San Antonio City Ordinance
"San Antonio City Council should respect the voice of millions of Texans who support traditional values."
Today, Todd Staples, candidate for Lieutenant Governor, released the following statement in opposition to a recently proposed San Antonio City Ordinance:
"As the Senate sponsor of the Texas Defense of Marriage Act (2005) that was adopted with 76% of the vote, I wholeheartedly oppose the proposed San Antonio ordinance. The proposal is fundamentally flawed as it clearly discriminates against those with deeply held religious views. Discrimination in any form should be rejected by all Texans, but there is a clear distinction between discrimination and a thinly veiled wholesale attack on a value system held by millions of Texans. This ordinance blatantly undermines the long held convictions of an overwhelming majority of our entire state, and the San Antonio City Council should respect the voice of millions of Texans who support traditional values."
