Another interesting response to the foolishness bubbling out of Houston is Redstate's Erick Erickson's idea, which he offered in his article this morning, Mayor Annise Parker Needs a Bible. Will You Send Her One? Obviously, Ms. Parker's is a low information politician (LIP) when it comes to the U.S. Constitution and the precepts and principles of the Judeo-Christian Bible upon which much of this nation's political structure and beliefs where based ...Dear (Freedom Loving Americans Everywhere):
What is going on in Houston? The liberal Mayor Annise Parker and the city council passed a gay rights ordinance that allows men with gender issues to use women’s restrooms. Well, a lot of churches – and women -- have a problem with that. So they gathered 50,000 signatures to repeal it.
The Mayor invalidated the petition, so the group sued. In response, the city subpoenaed four pastors, demanding copies of their sermons, speeches and communications with church members, to see if they had promoted the petition. In response to this clear overreach Christians from around the nation are rallying to their side.
In this difficult hour I know the Houston Pastors would welcome an outpouring of support for their stand from across the nation! If you can do so now, please join me and sign our Petition in support of their free speech rights at www.ISupportFreeSpeech.com! Over 25,000 Americans have signed our Petition in the last 18 hours.
This unprecedented assault on Pastors and Christians cannot and will not stand! Please stand with us by signing our petition today!
Todd Starnes, Fox News commentator, concluded in his article, Pastors to mayor, Don't mess with Texas pulpit, that:
"Ultimately, this is not about (homosexuals) or lesbians or a Bathroom Bill. This is about the U.S. Constitution. This is about religious liberty."
