A judge in Dallas, TX has found her teachable moment.
While speaking at an event earlier this week, Dallas County District Judge Tonya Parker told the audience:
?I`m sorry I don`t perform marriage ceremonies, because clearly the state does not have marriage equality and until it does I`m not going to partially apply the law to one group and not apply it to another group of people,? said Parker. ?It doesn`t seem right for me to perform ceremonies for people that can`t be performed for me.?
The video has gone viral and reaction to it is split.
