Elected Official Subpoenas Pastor Sermons For 'Anti-Gay' Comments

Senator Ted Cruz is sounding off on a subpoena, filed by an elected official, requiring pastors to hand-over their sermons so they can be scrutinized for any "anti-gay" comments....

(WND) Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, a possible GOP presidential candidate in 2016, is blasting Houston Mayor Annise Parker for taking legal action to obtain from a group of local pastors copies of sermons that have anything to do with homosexuality, gender identity or the mayor.

As WND reported Monday, the subpoena came in the city’s legal defense of a “non-discrimination” measure that allows “gender-confused” people to use public restrooms designated for the opposite sex.

In a statement Wednesday, Cruz said he was proud “to stand with the pastors.”

"Religious liberty is the very first protection in the Bill of Rights, the foundation of all our liberties," he said. "The city of Houston’s subpoenas demanding that pastors provide the government with copies of their sermons is both shocking and shameful."

The subpoenas were issued to five pastors after opponents of the ordinance filed a lawsuit. The pastors were part of a coalition of Houston-area churches that opposed the law, but they were not part of the lawsuit.

  1. Whoever thinks state sanctioning of homosexual marriage is harmless -- has their head in the sand. Once you rubber-stamp their agenda, this is where it eventually leads. They stomp all over the First Amendment.

  2. Is this Mayor wants to know what's in the sermons, I can suggest a fool proof way to find out: GO TO CHURCH and hear them for herself!

  3. starting next year, mandatory indoctrination to lesbian, gay , bisexuality begins in our schools, starting with the fifth grade.
