I would like to thank the Texas Republican Party for all it has done for gay rights.

No, really. If it wasn’t for your extreme stance regarding the private lives of gay Texans, the U.S. Supreme Court would never have heard our case for freedom from persecution and prosecution. And it would not have struck down all sodomy laws in this great and free country.

So thank you, Texas Republicans. We couldn’t have done it without you.
