Texas Voters Add Gay Marriage Ban to Constitution

Texans voted overwhelmingly to add a prohibition of same-sex marriage to their constitution on Tuesday, becoming the 19th U.S. state to do so. With about 550,000 votes counted, Proposition 2 was heading for ratification with 75.5 percent in favor. The outcome was expected even by opponents and continued a backlash to the movement for same-sex marriage that seemed to gain momentum when a Massachusetts court legalized gay unions in 2004.  Source.
