Texas activist: People are fleeing states that have same-sex marriage
A Texas activist has claimed that people are fleeing states that introduce same-sex marriage.
Cathie Adams, of the Texas Eagle Forum, made the claim in a press conference.
She said: “Texas is the fastest growing state in the nation and there is a reason for that, and part of that reason is traditional marriage.
“The Texas constitution makes it very clear that marriage is between one man and one woman.
“This is good for Texas families. We do not accept the homosexual agenda, that is what we are talking about here.
“If those who embrace that homosexual agenda want to move to a state that does embrace homosexual marriage, there is the state of Massachusetts that they could move to.
“But we are finding is that they’re not moving to Massachusetts… what is happening is that Massachusetts is declining in numbers, people are moving out of that state.

“So why in the world would Texas, that is growing and the fastest growing, want to join Massachusetts, that is declining?
“People are moving away, they are voting with their feet, out of Massachusetts.
“Yet, there are liberals who are trying to influence all of us in places like Hollywood and San Francisco. They want to change Texas.”
Despite her claims, the population of Massachusetts is 6,692,824 – up 2.2% from 6,547,629 in 2010.
Same-sex marriage has been legal in Massachusetts since 2004.
