Antigay Group Leader’s Wife Leaves Him… For Another Woman

saenzFor Jonathan Saenz (pictured), president of the antigay group Texas Values, the fight to keep marriage between one man and one woman is personal. Very personal.

In 2011, his wife, Corrine, left him for another woman. Now, he’s made it his life’s mission to try and squash the rights of all gay people living in the Lone Star State.

According to court documents obtained by Lone Star Q, Corrine Morris Rodriguez Saenz was dating another woman when she filed for divorce from Jonathan Saenz in 2011. She told the court she wanted to end the marriage because it was “insupportable due to discord or conflict of personalities.”

Insulted that his wife wasn’t satisfied with his efforts at being a good husband, Jonathan Saenz asked that the court refuse to grant the divorce. But not just that. He also asked it bar “any unrelated adult, with whom the parent has an intimate, romantic, emotional, and/or dating relationship to remain in the presence of the children, including but not limited to Ercimin Paredes, AKA Ercilia M. Paredes.”

Paredes is Corrine Saenz’s girlfriend.

Scorned Saenz also tried to have his ex-wife fined $500 and thrown in jail for refusing to undergo a psychological evaluation by a doctor of his choosing — even though he refused to pay the psychologist’s $2,500 fee.

When none of his efforts were successful, he took a different approach. Less than six months after his wife initially filed for divorce, Saenz took over as the president of the state’s top anti-gay group, Texas Values, a hate organization dedicated to standing up “for biblical, Judeo-Christian values by ensuring Texas is a state in which religious liberty flourishes, families prosper, and every human life is valued.” (Excluding, of course, the liberties, families, or lives of gay people.)

Earlier this year, a judge ruled that Texas’ ban on same-sex marriage was unconstitutional. Saenz is now working with Attorney General Abbott, the Republican Party’s nominee for governor, to overturn that decision. He’s also been a vocal supporter of gay conversion therapy and an opponent of nondiscrimination ordinances, said in interviews that same-sex marriage would lead to polygamy and people marrying their stepchildren, and suggested that gay activists want to put all Christians in concentration camps.

Talk about holding a grudge. Someone needs to tell this egomaniac to make like Idina Menzel and…

    Over-reacting much ya think?

  • 1EqualityUSA

    One may gather that every extended, excruciatingly spasmodic, intensely looong orgasm this woman experiences in the arms of another woman is seen as a act of aggression towards this poor sap of a man, who smiles as though he’s bearing down on remnants of his Chix-filletio meals, picked up on the way home from his pathetic hate office.

    So ONCE again, gays have to deal with anti-gay attacks on our rights because of some loser’s baggage.

    Sorry guy, she’s just not that into you.

  • tdx3fan

    I bet he still faps to lesbian and mff “straight” porn.

  • SportGuy

    Now that is a prime example of Karma, lol, have to love this kind of stuff!

  • lykeitiz

    I love how the article and the headline both say that she left him for “another” woman. Because, you know……she was already with one.

  • Billy Budd

    He went insane. Couldn’t cope with reality.

  • Bill

    Absolutely! This man has gone on a rampage against his former wife, because his male ego has been dented. He has just made himself look foolish. His former wife must have lived a terrible life with this clown. Living a lie. But she did “see the light” and since 2011 has been free to be the person she was always meant to be. I can identify with that myself. And no, she is not selfish. He needs to accept the truth of the situation. And move on, just as she has. He should also not allow his personal circumstances to influence public policy as he sees it.

    @1EqualityUSA: Excellent! LMFAO.

    @Bill: Hmmm, is there such a thing as an “Alpha-loser”? When are the under-40 folks in TX going to start voting? Or, are they as f*ck-tarded as the older Repubs???

  • Mikah

    I’m so happy for his ex wife,smart move girl.

  • NoCagada

    I bet he trolls gay websites FOR HOURS just to prove to himself how disgusting they are…HOURS…probably with pre-cum dripping out of his nasty little skin tag that he was sure would please a woman.

  • 1EqualityUSA

    the only thing that would make this better is if we could say these things to this fucktard’s face.

  • Dan Shill

    @1EqualityUSA: I can, and have. I live in Houston, and I have had run-ins with the fool. He does NOT like THIS pissed-off old queen now!

  • sfcarlos65

    He’s conservative, Hispanic, and apparently, a devout Catholic. In my experience, these are some of the biggest bullies around…..karma!

  • Mykaels

    So basically, he is a Texas republican…

  • ho

    Hope he chokes on his own cum-filled vomit.

  • Jarrod

    NoCagada, his wife seems to love a “nasty little skin tag” which is why she’s now with a woman.
