Houston’s Lesbian Mayor Moves to Control Pastors’ Sermons

When the people of Houston, Texas elected lesbian Annise Parker as mayor, I’m not sure they realized that they understood the ramifications of what they did. From the day she was sworn into office, Parker started working on her agenda to make all of Houston LGBT friendly.

In addition to having a lesbian mayor, Houston also has a very confused person on their city council. Jenifer Rene Pool, who is really a man who thinks or wants to be a woman, holds a position at large seat on the Houston city council.

So it should be no surprise that the moral standards of one of the largest and wealthiest cities in the US are going down the drain.

Earlier this year, Parker set out to give special privileges to LGBT people. Dr. Steven Hotze explained:

“We must stop Mayor Annise Parker’s plan to impose her radical idea to create two new ‘protected classes’ into the city of Houston’s charter’s anti-discrimination provisions. This new city ordinance would grant minority status to individuals based upon their chosen lifestyle of ‘sexual orientation’ and ‘gender identification.’”

“Mayor Parker’s ordinance would include minority status for transvestites, allowing men who dress as women to enter women’s public bathrooms and locker room areas.”

Parker’s efforts were successful as Gary DeMar wrote:

“The city of Houston has been taken over by the Gaystapo and its homosexual leader Mayor Annise Parker. It wasn’t enough to elect a self-proclaimed lesbian as the mayor of the city. The City Council, in an 11-6 vote, has now shoved the gay agenda done the throats of the people of Houston and those who visit the city in one of the most absurd and ominous laws ever written.”

“It’s now legal for men to use women’s bathrooms, showers, and dressing facilities – and vice-versa – thanks to the passing of the Equal Rights Ordinance in Houston, TX last Wednesday night.”

Now that Mayor Parker has shoved her sinful and abominable lifestyle down the throats of everyone in Houston, she is setting her sights on controlling what Christian pastors are saying from the pulpit. Bob Unruh with WND explains:

“Officials with the city of Houston, Texas, who are fighting for a controversial ordinance that would allow men to use women’s restrooms there now have 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.”

“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.”

In other words, the lesbian mayor and her gender confused council ‘it’ are targeting pastors who are standing up for the Word of God and challenging her perverted ordinances. If they preach what the Bible says about the sins of homosexuality, that God calls it an abomination, Parker will use her ordinance to file discrimination charges against them.

Christian persecution is alive and well in America and is growing stronger every single day. From the war on Christianity waged by Barack Obama to the war being waged against it by liberals, atheists, Muslims and the LGBT community, it is becoming increasingly likely that Christians will be going to jail because of their faith.

Are you prepared for this? Is your faith strong enough that you will face jail for the Word of God or are you like so many Sunday Christians who have compromised the Word of God and will betray your Savior? You had better think about that long and hard, pray about it as that decision time is nearly upon us all.
