When I read this article on the city of Houston subpoenaing pastors’ sermons, I asked myself, “Are we still in the USA?” Religious freedom is being trampled left and right by gay activists and supporters. Our school children are being left behind in Science and Math by other countries because school boards would rather teach them about homosexuality. Here’s a snippet of the article:
The city of Houston has subpoenaed sermons given by local pastors.
Yes, you read that correctly.
It’s a chilling turn of events for those of us who practice our faith and value the self-evident right to religious freedom recognized by the First Amendment.
The reason why this subpoena is being made is especially ominous: It targets high-profile pastors who opposed the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO), which, among other things, gives people who identify as transgender the right to file a discrimination complaint if they’re barred from accessing a restroom. Houston’s mayor, Annise Parker, is the city’s first lesbian mayor.
When did the Constitution of the United States of America get overthrown? We have freedom of speech, but we also have freedom of religion. It is guaranteed by the First Amendment. People call us intolerant, but true Christians love their fellow man. Jesus told us to love God and to love others. Stand-up for these pastors.
We are seeing gay marriage bans being overturned by judges. The majority rule, which in all the states that passed that marriage is between one man and one woman, is being trampled by one person, the judge. Democracy is non-existent when in comes to marriage. States have passed the bans and one judge says he or she knows better than the majority as to what they want.
If we don’t do something, we won’t be allowed to pray openly to God. Our churches and pastors will be censored. We’ll have to start having underground churches like our Chinese brothers and sisters. The church exempt status will be revoked. This could happen to any religious group be it Christian, Catholic, Jewish, or Muslim, etc. Anyone who teaches that homosexuality is wrong will be targeted. Get ready.
