Extreme Texas Anti-Gay Leader’s Ex-Wife Left Him for Another Woman

saenzThere’s a fairly large anti-gay group here in Texas known as Texas Values, whose president is a gentleman by the name of Jonathan Saenz.

Well, it seems, Mr. Saenz wasn’t always all that concerned with opposing gay rights.  Sure, he was fairly well known for being anti-abortion and defending the right for conservatives to force their religion on other people, but he had never made a name for himself in the world of anti-gay activism.

That was until 2012, when he become one of Texas’ most vocal anti-gay leaders.

What caused this sudden interest in opposing gay rights?  Well, it just so happens, in 2011 Saenz’s now ex-wife left him – for another woman

That seems to have been the trigger for his sudden interest in extreme anti-gay views.

And trust me when I say they are quite extreme.  Since focusing most of his attention on oppose gay rights Saenz has:

  • Endorsed gay conversion therapy.
  • Claimed that same-sex marriage will lead to polygamy and people marrying their step-children.
  • Suggested that gays want to put Christians in concentration camps.
  • Strongly opposed nondiscrimination ordinances in San Antonio and Houston.

In other words, since his wife left him for another woman, he’s been a massive prick to the LGBT community.

According to court records, Saenz went to great lengths during the divorce to prevent their children from being around his ex-wife’s girlfriend and even tried to put his ex-wife in jail for not seeking a psychological evaluation that was apparently agreed upon by both parties during the divorce.

He also apparently wanted all records of any travel, entertainment, meals, gifts or pretty much anything that might remotely be related to any possible contact with his ex-wife’s girlfriend.

He wasn’t successful.

I think it’s safe to say that this guy is an absolute scumbag.

If you read through more of the details from their divorce, he put his ex-wife through absolute hell for two years until everything was officially finalized.

And now it seems that because he lost control of his ex-wife, and wasn’t able to prevent his children from being around her girlfriend, he’s now dedicating his life to opposing gay rights.

Which, I guess is his way to try to get back at her because he failed miserably to do so during their divorce.

I’d encourage everyone to head on over to the Texas Values Facebook page and let Mr. Saenz know exactly what you think of him and his terrible organization.  Be sure to tell him Allen Clifton from Forward Progressives sent you.

    Saenz sounds like a textbook example of narcissism flavored with ‘control-freakism.’ Some say narcissism is excessive pride in ones self-worth, but I think it’s more of a cover up for insecurity.

    Q: What did his wife say when she left?

    A: “See ya, Tiny.”


    • giankeys luvs shemale porn

      she got tired of hearing about jeeeeesus instead of seeing GOD whilst in the bedroom!

    • Pipercat

      Probably more like: Quick Draw Tiny!

    • Jim

      Doubt that was the deal. Think about it-why leave Tiny for a woman. Oh, I get it. Because she’s everything he’s not including 1 2 3 4 5 … Yep, he doesn’t sound like somebody I’d want around me.

    of course there is a block on their website for general posts….typical Tea Party….afraid of open discourse….

    • giankeys luvs shemale porn

      correct— I tried also

  • mingkee

    He should revenge to marry a guy…in NYC!

    • giankeys luvs shemale porn

      no sober self respecting gay man would touch him ………..

  • giankeys luvs shemale porn

    I — and YOU– better strongly appreciate the regressive white trash religious scumbags fervor is TRYING to use BIGGER government for personal gains and the vengeance; after all———- why should EQUAL equality be given to NON whites and NON males and NON hetero-sexuals when the REGRESSIVE rightwing SCUM has the “alpha and omega” argument of having JEEEEESUS ( see: VOODOO) – the 21st century ‘jesus’- on THEIR precious and loving side? This is SIMPLE: we need to VOTE TEA PARTY republican so we can — as americans – have this ability for ALL americans to seek ” the pursuit of happiness” which Thomas Jefferson decried as OUR RIGHT!

    The guy was too BIG a pussy for her. So, she went to the source. Mazel!

  • MJ1030

    I got a post in before the block. My post and many others have been deleted. Coward.

  • hermanprovi

    A “woman scorned” is one thing [dangerous], a straight guy scorned indulges in irrational behavior! Perhaps Mr. Saenz, should ponder, WHY, his ex left him! Maybe, she did not adhere to the ‘biblical’ tenet, that a woman is subject to a man!

    • giankeys luvs shemale porn

      possibly,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, fortunately we who are PROGRESSING as a species and as a NATION recognize the any/all BOOKS are great to read and even greater to be reviewed as all man made writings are flawed. ESPECIALLY OLD ones written by MEN ONLY

    Well, I can understand why finding out his ex- was leaving him because she is gay could explain why he has a particular bone to pick with the issue.

    OTOH – wonder if he’s given much thought to the idea that this is what happens when LGBT folks try to pretend that they are straight and live in the world of Leave it to Beaver.

    • Cemetery Girl

      If his ex had left him for another man would you expect him to oppose heterosexual marriage? Yeah, his pride has been hurt, it happens. Happens to pretty much anyone that has a partner leave them for someone else. The adult thing to do is move on. Heck, realistically he can look at this as it really wasn’t him or something he could have done, he just wasn’t her type. Instead he’s acting like a child trying to take his embarrassment out on a whole group of people.

    • Jim

      That a pun?

  • Thinkingman

    Not that I really care, but it wouldn’t surprise me if turns out Mr. Saenz was gay the whole time.

    • giankeys luvs shemale porn

      or more likely impotent and micropenile

  • kduke

    Dang. I had a comedy routine set up to make sense out of “protect marriage” rules… that a man’s wife was going to leave him for a woman, but when she found out that they couldn’t get married, she decided it had all been a terrible mistake, so she asked him to take her back and offered lots of sex any way he liked it. I guess it’s not possible to make up a scenario too goofy for the wingnuts not to make it happen…

  • Jim

    He may not be a “scumbag” but he isn’t well balanced, that ‘s for sure.

  • rossbro

    No, the departing wife said, ‘ Adios, Asshole’ !
