The Texas Senate approved legislation Monday that would allow clergy members the right to refuse to marry a same-sex couple. The Senate passed the legislation 21-10 with one Democrat joining the Republicans.

According to the Texas Tribune, the bill’s author said the legislation may be needed depending on a future ruling from the Supreme Court.

The bill’s author, state Sen. Craig Estes, R-Wichita Falls, suggested on the floor Monday that his measure would be needed if that became the case.

He also dismissed concerns about its unintended consequences. The legislation was about protecting pastors “who have a strong religious belief ” against same-sex marriage, he said.

“It is not my intention to discriminate against anyone with this bill,” he said.

Do you approve of this bill? Let us know in today’s KFYO Poll of the Day.
