In 2002, elementary school teacher Corrine Morris Rodriguez Saenz married attorney Jonathan Saenz. By 2010, the couple had three children, while Jonathan Saenz rose to political prominence:
Jonathan M. Saenz, Esq., is the President of Texas Values, a nonprofit group dedicated to preserving and advancing a culture of family values in the state of Texas.
Prior to leading Texas Values, Jonathan headed the Liberty Institute offices at the Texas Capitol in Austin where he served as Director of Legislative Affairs and Attorney for Liberty Institute. He frequently presents research, analysis, and testimony before the Texas Legislature, State Board of Education, and other government entities on various issues affecting faith, family, and freedom.
Jonathan believes in religious liberty, sanctity of human life, family values, and constitutional rights and has been involved in numerous court cases, including cases before the Texas Supreme Court and the United State Supreme Court.
When you’re doing the Lord’s work, it’s important to remember that Satan will be working full-time to do everything he can to destroy you, and in Texas, the state satanic headquarters is in Austin.
Corrine Saenz was teaching at Becker Elementary School in Austin where, according to court records, she met fellow teacher Ercimin Paredes, who became her lesbian lover. Corinne Saenz became “deeply involved in her relationship with Ms. Paredes as early as the fall of 2010,” according to a document filed by her husband. The Saenzes separated in July 2011. Corinne filed for divorce a month later, and her husband initially opposed the divorce. In February 2012, a court issued an order forbidding Corinne’s lesbian girlfriend from “from being in the presence of the [Saenz] children,” and also ordering Corinne to undergo psychiatric evaluation. Ultimately, Corinne’s demand for a divorce was granted, and joint custody was awarded, with no stipulation as to the children and Corinne’s partner.
For some reason, the liberal media is treating this story as a Republican sex scandal, although it strikes me that Jonathan Saenz is the injured party, and that it is his ex-wife who is inflicting emotional damage on their children: “Mommy doesn’t love Daddy anymore. Mommy’s a lesbian now. Don’t worry, kids. Daddy will pay for your psychiatrist and your anti-depressant prescriptions.”
