Followup to: Lesbian Mayor Declares War On Christians: Subpoenas Local Pastors’ Constitutionally Protected Sermons AND Communications With Congregants
Show the Godless fascist Mayor of Houston Annise Parker and her flunkies what American Christians are made of. Let them know that we as Christians refuse to take this sitting down. That we refuse to stand by while a government entity is engaging in the persecution of fellow Christians. That in no uncertain terms will we allow the secular left to continue to view Christianity as a ‘soft target’ (while they bow and scrape to Islam) –any longer.
ENOUGH is ENOUGH!
(Excerpt of petition text)
Houston, We Have a Problem!
Our First Amendment protects freedom of speech and religion, which has made these significant accomplishments possible. If pastors had been silenced, if they had not been free to speak out on issues in our society, America would not be what it is today. In fact, America would not be.
We live in a rich, diverse society today. A society with differing viewpoints and beliefs, a society of open discourse in which tolerance makes it possible for us to disagree with respect. We also live in a society that values equality, including the notion that everyone has the right to publicly express deeply held beliefs without fear of persecution or reprisal. People of faith – who are a significant part of America’s rich rainbow of diversity – share the same fundamental rights as other groups.
Your legal actions against a group of respected clergy members in the city of Houston constitute aggressive bullying, the very offense from which you seek to protect another community in the city. This is unconstitutional, un-American, and the very height of hypocrisy.
Faith is alive and thriving, as they have already garnered 8,757 signatures out of a goal of 10,000.
But let’s give them a number well beyond what they had hoped for. If we all join together and also share this with family and friends we could quite possibly give them a number of 6 digits or more!
