Covenant Marriage in Texas

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]exotic_princess)

Another try to get covenant marriage in Texas.


Apparently it's been going on for awhile (trying to get it passed here), but I heard a mention of a bill for it this morning on the radio, so I started looking for info.

http://www.dfw.com/mld/dfw/16213706.htm - info from 12/06.

More information on the Covenant Marriage Movement (started in Dallas, surprise surprise!)


Despite lobbying by church groups, only Arkansas, Arizona and Louisiana passed covenant marriage bills. Legislation was introduced but not passed in Iowa, Missouri, Indiana, Texas, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, Mississippi, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Georgia, New Mexico, California, Kansas, Maryland, Minnesota, Oregon, Nebraska, Tennessee, Washington, and Florida.

On Valentine's Day 2005, Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, a Baptist minister turned conservative Republican, and his wife, took advantage of the Covenant Marriage Act of 2001 to convert their 30-year marriage to a covenant marriage in a ceremony in Little Rock. In February 2006, congregations across the South will participate in Covenant Marriage Sunday to reaffirm God's role in their marriages. But for the most part, the covenant marriage movement failed to convince couples to make their marriages more difficult to escape.

Excerpt. Click Headline for full story. )
This case represents the true turning point for separation of church and state in this nation. It is often represented as a technical issue, but it is a critical one. Deny standing, and never again can we challenge any government support of any church.
