SAN ANTONIO, TX – Gay marriage, a colorful issue no matter what side you’re on; but could our predominately red state of Texas soon be seeing all the colors?

A federal judge in San Antonio struck down the state’s ban on same-sex marriage ruling it unconstitutional; but that’s certainly not how everyone feels.

Republican Texas State Senator Dan Patrick, who’s also running for Texas Lieutenant Governor, was so fired up he accidentally voiced support for same-sex marriage in a major twitter typo saying “marriage equals one man and one man!!!!” Oops!

Despite the latest ruling the state ban on gay marriage remains in effect, the U.S. Supreme Court will have the final say.

According to the Texas pastor council, over 1000 pastors statewide are showing their support for Attorney General Greg Abbott who plans to appeal the decision.

Currently, same-sex marriage is legal in 17 states and the District of Columbia.

As for Texas, who knows what’s next with this colorful issue.
