Texas anti-gay leader Jonathan Saenz’s ex-wife left him for another woman.
Mere months before Jonathan Saenz became president of the anti-gay group Texas Values, his wife left him for another woman, according to Hays County district court records obtained by Lone Star Q.
The revelation could help explain Saenz’s seemingly abrupt transformation from socially conservative lobbyist to homophobic firebrand.
Saenz, a devout Catholic, has been a right-wing operative in Texas for many years — working on abortion and religious liberty cases as a staff attorney for the Plano-based Liberty Legal Institute as far back as 2005.
However, it wasn’t until recently that Saenz emerged as one of the state’s best-known — and most extreme — anti-LGBT voices.
are you serious this isn’t poetic irony happening here; this dude started openly rallying against LGBT rights because his ex-wife had left him for another woman
he even went as far as to demand that she undergo psychiatric evaluation (but refuse to pay for it, of course) and filed a court order against her partner to prevent her from even being around their kids
this is like. some super-villain backstory type shit. what a fucking asshole
