The Pflugerville School Board last week up­held the district ad­min­is­tra­tion’s de­ci­sion to of­fer in­surance ben­e­fits to domestic part­ners start­ing Jan. 1. The de­ci­sion makes Pflugerville the first school district in Texas to of­fer such ben­e­fits.

Kevin Mur­phey: Sep­a­ra­tion of church and state? What two peo­ple do in their house is none of my, or any­one else’s busi­ness; bring it out­side and pub­lic and it im­pacts ev­ery­one’s life.

Brent Dou­glas: Good job Pflugerville! It’s time to move this state for­ward!

Misty An­der­son: Didn’t think Pflugerville would be the first. Sur­prised, but very proud of them, too! Come on Austin ... !

Ceja Stone cold Fox Kratos Ray: Way to go! Now if Austin fol­lows oth­ers will also ... We are the cap­i­tal! Come on Texas. Show them we are lead­ers of free­dom!

Brady Bragg: Now, At­tor­ney Gen­eral Greg Ab­bott, stay out of our com­mu­nity’s busi­ness. There’s noth­ing un­con­sti­tu­tional about health care ben­e­fits for ci­ti­zens.

Sara Hall Stubbs: I thought Christ com­manded his fol­low­ers to “love the least of th­ese” and to “do unto oth­ers.” Why does it seem that the Chris­tians with the most re­li­gious con­vic­tions spew the most ha­tred? Con­grat­u­la­tions, Pflugerville, for be­ing Christ­like!

Candy Clark Reed: Glad for this de­ci­sion Pflugerville!

Karen Hoover: The rest of them should fol­low suit. … Pflugerville is lead­ing by ex­am­ple. Get in­volved in the dis­cus­sion about the day’s news on
