Houston Texas demanded to see the sermons preached by several area pastors.
The recent move came in a subpoena from the city to pastors for copies of their sermons – and copies of other communications from the pastors to their congregations – in the city’s fight over a “non-discrimination” plan that allows “gender-confused” people to use whatever public restrooms with which they identify. . . .
“The city council and its attorneys are engaging in an inquisition designed to stifle any critique of its actions. Political and social commentary is not a crime; it is protected by the First Amendment.”
“The message is clear: oppose the decisions of city government, and drown in unwarranted, burdensome discovery requests,” said a brief in support of the motion to quash. “These requests, if allowed, will have a chilling effect on future citizens who might consider circulating referendum petitions because they are dissatisfied with ordinances passed by the city council. “Not only will the nonparty pastors be harmed if these discovery requests are allowed, but the people will suffer as well. The referendum process will become toxic and the people will be deprived of an important check on city government provided them by the charter.”Read more at here
If there were any ‘shock’ left in me, I’d be shocked, but we are literally and figuratively living in and under an “obamanation”. This man, Barack Hussein Obama, has already “targeted” Conservatives with the IRS and Christians via the unconstitutional ‘obamacare’, forcing those who have “religious objections” to pay for some females birth control and abortion. His long, fascist fingers are reaching into every community in the country, through radical Democrats.
This is ‘trickle down dictatorial policy’ from the Obama regime. There is no excuse for this sort of unconstitutional act to move forward, but that hasn’t stopped Obama and his drone, fascist followers of the Democrat Party. Liberals who hate, stop at nothing to crush what they don’t want to hear. The hate the Constitution which guarantees rights of the people. They adoration is for the rights of government because they are government . . . or connected like leaches.
These sort of unethical, frightening and unconstitutional activities will continue to plague Americans as long as they continue to put Democrats in office.
What brought on this assault? Democrat lesbian Mayor Annise Parker.
“The recent move came in a subpoena from the city to pastors for copies of their sermons – and copies of other communications from the pastors to their congregations – in the city’s fight over a “non-discrimination” plan that allows “gender-confused” people to use whatever public restrooms with which they identify. A legal action challenging the city’s move has developed because the city allegedly violated its own charter in the process of adopting the Equal Rights Ordinance, which in May designated homosexuals and transgender persons as a protected class. Mayor Annise Parker after officials announced a voter petition to repeal the measure didn’t have enough signatures to qualify for the election ballot. Parker has acknowledged the ordinance is “all about me,” was legally married to her same-sex partner in California in January.”
Democrat Mayor of Houston, Annise Parker, wants to forced her personal agenda on all others. No doubt, the reason she sought office. Not to “represent” all the people of Houston, but like Obama, her personal radical agenda.
She doesn’t want a distinction of gender, even in public bathroom, but simply allow males and females to wander in and out at will over “general confusion”. And if that means trying to control preachers and pastors right to preach whatever they choose, ‘so let it be written; so let it be done’.
The only thing desperately confused, appears to be this woman who isn’t qualified for public office. Reasonable people would have known that — “low information voters” hear babble and believe. She should be Impeached and removed. I don’t know if there are enough reasonable, sensible people in Houston to do that.
