No doubt the Marriage Equality ruling by the Supreme Court has angered state lawmakers across the United States. Some however, are taking their opposition of the ruling to the next level and are now considering secession.

Texas, Louisiana, and South Carolina state officials have been meeting in secret and having "unofficial" phone conversations about seceding from the United States in response to what they feel is an invasion of their state's moral values as well as their religious freedoms by the Supreme Court and President Obama. Among trying to overcome the obvious problem of the land gap between the three states, the primary goal between the states seems to be riding their citizens of the "plague that is homosexuality and marriage equality".

How the states will run their new country is not clear. However, the state lawmakers do plan to rally the support of their citizens by using the Confederate Flag as a symbol of their new nation. They believe that the combination of the public's view of same sex marriage and support against the ban of the Confederate Flag will be the driving force in getting the backing the states need from their citizens. After all, without citizens, there is no basis for an economy, which obviously will render the new nation created by the states broke and baseless. It is also hoped that using the now criminalized Confederate Flag will gain further support by the other southern states which will help to solve the problem of the land gap between the three original states.

The main orchestrator of this plot is not known. Although it seems the seed of secession has already been well planted in the state of South Carolina with the recent senatorial address given by Senator Bright this morning, July 6th.

"We can rally together and talk about a flag all we want but the Devil is taking control of this land and we're not stopping him. It's time to make our stand. Let South Carolina discuss it. If the state's got to get out of the business of marriage then let's get out of the business of marriage because we cannot succumb to what's to come of the future of this nation."
