Texas wants to teach you about marriage

That, or you can pay them $100, an increase from the previous $30 marriage license fee. From the Dallas Morning News:

A bill by Rep. Warren Chisum, R-Pampa, raises the cost of marriage licenses from $30 to $100 and requires engaged couples to take an eight-hour class on marriage if they don’t want to pay the fee. Poor couples can apply for a scholarship to the class.

Now, I’m sure the State would prefer the $70, but if not, you can take this nice class, which also isn’t free.

While Googling Rep. Chisum to see if he had any connections with the proprietors of this class, I found this memo, which he sent out on February 9th. I wish I was making this up:

Indisputable evidence – long hidden but now available to everyone – demonstrates conclusively that so-called “secular evolution science” is the Big-Bang 15-billion-year alternative “creation scenario” of the Pharisee religion. This scenario is derived concept-for-concept from Rabbinic writings in the mystic “holy book” Kabbala dating back at least two millennia. (emphasis his)

So since evolution is a Jewish conspiracy, it clearly violates the Establishment Clause to teach it in public schools. The evidence for this is contained in links to In other words, CRAZYTIME.

I’ve already emailed the Gray County, Texas LP about this memo, so that they can use it against Chisum in 2008.

  1. OMG!!! The fact that the state already has to “sanction” a marriage to make it legal is disgusting. The fact that they already force you to pay for them to sanction it is even more bothersome. But the fact that there is legislation trying to involve the state more and increase the amount one is required to pay is nuckingfutz!!!!!

  2. In that part of the Texas Panhandle, publicity about his views on Jews would probably get him even more votes. What the Texas LP needs to do is reveal that he is a secret Jew himself, or maybe a Satanist, or even that – gasp – he once matriculated at college.

  3. Holy shit, that guy is full of the crazy.

    I hope that doesn’t pass.
