http://www.nbcdfw.com

Dallas County Judge Tonya Parker says she won't perform marriage ceremonies until gay couples can wed. “I use it as my opportunity to give them a lesson about marriage inequality in this state," and usually tells people "‘I’m sorry. I don’t perform marriage ceremonies because we are in a state that does not have marriage equality, and until it does, I am not going to partially apply the law to one group of people that doesn’t apply to another group of people.’ And 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." She also added: "I do not perform [marriages] because it is not an equal application of the law. Period."
