Freshman Rep. Mark Keough, R-The Woodlands, is offering free cake to constituents.

A sponsor of Rep. Cecil Bell’s bill barring any salary to government employees who issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, Keough’s cake celebrates a decade of Texas’ ban on same-sex marriage.

Today was also Texas Faith and Family Day, so serving cake after a long day of eating the red meat social issues important to GOP primary makes sense.

I highly doubt all of Keough’s constituents are God-fearing Christians concerned the Apocalypse will emerge from Cathie Adams’ hair. I also doubt are all Republicans, much less Republicans who voted for his opponent in last year’s Republican primary.

But according to one observer, “regardless of your politics,” tweeted one person, seen below, “I 100% support offering free cake to your constituents. #FreeSpeech #txlege”:

No matter how much I may want cake, I really don’t want to eat a cake celebrating the state’s refusal to recognize my friends’ marriages.

Haters gonna hate. And haters can eat their fucking cake too.

In fact, let them eat cake.
