Lesbian judge refuses to perform marriage ceremonies

Dallas County civil Judge Tonya Parker, a lesbian, is making national news after announcing she won’t perform marriage ceremonies in her court until gay couples can legally wed in Texas.
According to the Dallas Voice, Parker says:
I don’t perform marriage ceremonies because we are in a state that does not have marriage equality … it’s kind of oxymoronic for me to perform ceremonies that can’t be performed for me, so I’m not going to do it.
Parker announced her decision while giving a speech on Tuesday at the monthly meeting of the Stonewall Democrats of Dallas, of which she is a member, the Dallas Voice says. See the YouTube video below:
